Gingrich: Romney 'Far and Away' Most Likely Republican Nominee

The former speaker talks about his campaign in the past tense but doesn't say he's getting out.

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich all but conceded Sunday that front-runner Mitt Romney would win the party’s presidential nomination, saying he needed to be “realistic” about the  former Massachusetts governor’s chances.

“He is far and away most likely Republican nominee,” Gingrich said during an interview on Fox News Sunday

 

The onetime House speaker was in a reflective mood about his own campaign, which he has scaled back of late amid a series of disappointing finishes in recent primary contests. The presidential primary had been harder than he expected, Gingrich said, but that didn’t mean he regretted seeking the office.

“It was right thing for me to do in my life and where I thought the country was,” he said. “I have no regrets.”

He added later: “We’ve had a great campaign, with some great experiences. Some things work, some things don’t.”

 

Gingrich acknowledged his campaign debt now stands at “slightly less” than $4.5 million and talked about making up the difference through fundraisers after his campaign is over. But he did not say when that would be, nor was he asked.
