[SOT/](Newt Gingrich/Republican Presidential Candidate/Cramerton, North Carolina)("I think you have to, at some point, be honest about what's happening in the real world instead of what you'd like to have happen. Gov. Romney had a very good day yesterday. He got 67 percent in one state, 63 percent in another, 62 in another. You know you have to give him some credit. This guy has worked 6 years, put together a big machine and he's put together a serious campaign. I think, obviously, that I would be a better candidate. The fact is the voters didn't think that. And I also think it's very, very important that we be unified. Nothing should stop, no conservative anywhere in America should have any doubt about the importance of defeating Barack Obama. (Applause) So I want you to know that I've been coming here for a long time as a citizen. I'm gonna keep coming here as a citizen. I have a schedule through the rest of the week. I'm gonna be out talking about these kinds of issues...and I have a number of specific ideas that I think will make our platform stronger, our country stronger. And Callista and I are committed to going to Tampa and carrying these ideas forward, and we're committed to campaigning all Fall. (Applause) So, in addition to the presidency we're going to try to take control of the Senate, increase our margin in the House and we're going to try to reach out to both to younger Americans and Americans who may not have historically been Republican but who ought to hear our message. We're going to stay very, very active. We're working out the details of our transition and we'll have information for the press in the next couple of days. I am committed to this party, defeating Obama and I will find ways to be helpful. I do think it's pretty clear that Gov. Romney is ultimately going to be the nominee and we're going to do everything we can to make sure that he in fact is effective. ")
