Gingrich Now Just Trying to Block Romney

Patricia Murphy notes Newt Gingrich tipped his hand last night at "his campaign's real strategy, which is no longer to win to nomination outright but to make Mitt Romney lose by denying him the 1,144 delegates he needs to clinch the GOP nomination before the Republican convention in August."

"Gingrich has grown increasingly bitter toward Romney throughout the campaign, as the former Massachusetts governor has unloaded a barrage of attacks against the former speaker and, Gingrich believes, hurt his showings at the polls in the process."

National Journal quotes Gingrich: "Governor Romney will get at most one out of every three delegates. Once again he will fall dramatically short ... I think that the odds against his being able to get 1,144 delegates is very, very high. I think he is more likely to be a front-runner who ends up not finishing the race."
