Gingrich: Not quitting, because race isn't decided

(CNN) – Newt Gingrich may be far behind in the GOP delegate count – he has a quarter of the number frontrunner Mitt Romney does – but said on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer" that he isn't bowing out of the race.

"I think this is not over until it's over and obviously, if he does become the nominee, I will support him," the former House speaker said of Romney, calling him "the weakest front runner in modern times."

BLITZER'S BLOG: What to expect at a contested convention

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

(CNN) – Mitt Romney may be in the driver’s seat right now, but there is still a chance he won’t be able to amass the 1,144 delegates needed to win the Republican presidential nomination before the party convention in Tampa at the end of August.

If he comes up short, there could be a contested convention. That means the delegates actually would have to vote on the convention floor for the nominee.

BLITZER'S BLOG: Millions have already spoken

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

(CNN) -
Even though the pundits and the headlines say Mitt Romney is only limping toward the delegates he needs, when you look at the popular vote the lines are a little more clearly drawn. The math seems to be in Romney’s favor, though none of the other candidates seem to be thinking about dropping out.

So far since Iowa and including the 10 contests of Super Tuesday, 8,257,860 Americans have voted in the Republican presidential primaries and caucuses. That’s a lot of people who have spoken.

BLITZER'S BLOG: It’s going to get nasty!

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

(CNN) – If you think it’s been a rough ride for the Republican candidates during this campaign season, just wait. This will be seen as child’s play once the general election campaign begins.

I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again: The war of words between President Obama and his campaign supporters versus the eventual Republican nominee and his supporters will be fierce.
