Why Gingrich May Not Make it to the Convention

NBC News highlights a RNC rule stipulating that candidates seeking the nomination must have won a plurality of votes in at least five states to have their name presented for the GOP nomination.

Said RNC Chairman Reince Preibus: "It's an important rule. So when these candidates are adding up their delegates or when people out there have a particular issue that they would like to move at the convention, they had better make sure they at least have a plurality of five states to make these things happen."

Newt Gingrich has only won two primaries so far -- South Carolina and Georgia.
