Washington — Newt Gingrich insisted Monday that he would continue in the fight for the Republican presidential nomination until Mitt Romney secured the 1,144 delegates necessary to clinch the nomination, saying 'a whole new conversation' would occur if the frontrunner was also unable to hit the necessary total.
"I think the morning that he gets 1,144 that are locked down, then I think he claim to be the nominee. But until then, he's not the nominee," Gingrich said on CNN.
