Some bad news for Rick Santorum: Newt Gingrich has no plans to drop out—and can't imagine a situation that would make him reconsider.
During an appearance on CBS's This Morning on Friday, the former House speaker again stressed that his failure to win either of this past week's Deep South primaries wouldn't convince him to call it quits. "I’ll be with you in Tampa," he said when asked about his plans.
Gingrich has repeatedly resisted calls to drop out of the race, even though he trails both Mitt Romney and Santorum in the delegate count and in the statewide win total. The former Georgia congressman's only two wins came in his home state and in South Carolina.
His team had suggested that Alabama and Mississippi were must-wins for his struggling campaign ahead of Tuesday's primaries, but quickly began to walk back those comments as soon as it became clear that Gingrich was headed for defeat in both.
Asked Friday what conditions could result in him ending his presidential campaign, Gingrich responded: "Probably none."
