Gingrich on Plan B: 'I'm Quite Happy With Plan A, Frankly' By NBC's Alex Moe
LANCASTER, Penn. Campaigning in Pennsylvania with one-week left before the states primary, Newt Gingrich acknowledged he has no Plan B and downplayed one of his top surrogates call for him to exit the presidential race.
Asked if he is thinking about what he will do if he does not get the nomination what his Plan B would be Gingrich brushed it off. "I don't worry about that right now. I'm focused on the nomination, Gingrich said following remarks at the Lancaster County GOP Dinner here. I'm quite happy with Plan A, frankly." (snip)
Gingrich plans to move ahead with his campaign despite increasing calls for him to drop out of the race including from onetime supporter, Herman Cain.
Cain, the onetime presidential candidate who endorsed Gingrich in late January, took to the airwaves Monday morning on a radio show and referenced Romney as the presumptive GOP nominee.
"To Newt Gingrich I would say, 'Speaker Gingrich, with all due respect, let's get on with this, OK?'" Cain said in an interview on WMAL's Mornings On The Mall. "I even endorsed Newt Gingrich at one point because I thought he had a shot. Well, not now. He doesn't have a shot."

Suppose that Romney has a heart attack, or some women comes forth and claims they had an affair. AT that point everything would change and the fact that Newt is still on the stage would make ALL the difference in the world to CONSERVATIVES
As Yogi Berra once said, "it ain't over 'til it's over."
Heard a guy calling into Bill Bennett’s show today, a regular caller, who sounded real depressed, said he is not enthusiastic about Mitt, said he thinks Mitt’s taking conservatives for granted, and says he’ll probably pull the lever for him but doesn’t see himself stuffing envelopes or helping with the campaign. So the reluctance to accept Mitt as the nominee is not just limited to Freepers, despite what the Romney supplicants here want to tell you. If we don’t stop Romney we will lose the election due to an unenthusiastic base. Unless you think Romney’s going to be able to bus enough Mormons out of Utah to man a national campaign.
And really with Gingrich polling in the single digits, how do you think this could even be remotely possible? The only guy who could have possibly done so (Santorum with 11 states and over 3 mllion votes cast for him) has pulled out. That floor fight will not happen. The fight now is to get a real conservative as VP.
No disagreement here.
Not even close. Newt is no Ron
Our government was more fiscally conservative when Newt was Speaker than when Reagan was President. You tell me on what issues was Reagan more conservative than Newt.
