Gingrich says it's not yet time to end campaign

Washington (CNN) - Newt Gingrich said Sunday that he'll do everything he can to support Mitt Romney as the Republican Party's presidential nominee when that time comes. But that time hasn't come yet.

"I think you have to be realistic, given the size of his organization, given the number of primaries he's won. He is far and away the most likely Republican nominee," Gingrich said on "Fox News Sunday." "And if he does get to 1,144 delegates, I'll support him. I'll do everything I can this fall to help him defeat (President Barack) Obama."

    Newt lost the race when he pandered to NASA about Moon bases.

    It's so funny – – republican voters listen for months to the candidates badmouthing and bashing each other, impugning their ethics, dignity and intelligence, and then when one of these losers gets enough delegates to be the candidate, he (and it's ALWAYS a "he") miraculously morphs into a 'viable candidate who I can support wholeheartedly! What a bunch of maroons!
