Gingrich says he won't leave GOP race

WILMINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich is using a basketball analogy to indicate his intention to continue his bid for the GOP nomination.
Talking to WWAY-TV in Wilmington this afternoon, Gingrich described North Carolina as a great state for sports and that people expect basketball teams to play the entire game. He said his bid for the White House has every right to campaign until the race is over.
Gingrich, who spoke at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, said people walked up to him and urged him to stay in the race, represent their values and fight for conservatism.
The appearance in North Carolina by the former House speaker comes one day after Gingrich finished third in primaries in the District of Columbia and Maryland, and fourth in Wisconsin.
