Romney primary tactics insufficient for general election, Gingrich says

(CNN) – As some Republicans look for an end to their party's presidential primary, candidate Newt Gingrich said Thursday he continues to campaign because there is no suitable alternative in the Republican field.

"The reality is that the bailout has worked to some extent," Gingrich told CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight," before transitioning to his criticism of the program, which began under President George W.
