(CNN) – One of Newt Gingrich’s daughters found no fault with their father not calling Florida GOP primary victor Mitt Romney after his win in the Sunshine State.
“I'm not really sure I would say it's graceless,” Kathy Gingrich Lubbers told CNN’s Piers Morgan on Tuesday. “What it is, is the reality that he's moved on and we're looking forward to the next 46 states.”

Romney's other rivals, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul, called Romney after his win, but sources with Team Gingrich and Team Romney said the frontrunners did not speak Tuesday night.
Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker, left Florida shortly after his remarks and is to campaign in Nevada on Wednesday.
