Coming thank all of you for your very very hard work -- and all the work you did I particularly want to thank.
Travel Wagner who has just been -- -- crisscross the state.
And I'm delighted.
Here Mallon with us tonight and we congratulate them when -- 54 anniversary it's just wonderful to have -- here.
With us I also think -- -- tomorrow from the very beginning helped us put -- campaign here in Alabama.
It's quite an evening obviously we'd like to come -- first I want to start by saying that.
-- and tomorrow morning great campaign.
He has won a victory in -- -- -- he's worked very hard to achieve it I know how much he's -- in this campaign he and his entire family.
Over the last year and I congratulate him a positive the positive result I'd also point out that because this is proportional representation.
We're going to leave Alabama Mississippi with a substantial number of delegates.
Increasing our our total going towards Tampa.
And we are very grateful to you because you made that outcome possible.
And with your help we're going to take -- much bigger delegation.
And then we had yesterday so thank you very much.
I emphasize going to Tampa because one of the things tonight proved.
Is that the elite media's effort to convince the nation.
The Mitt Romney is inevitable.
-- -- Fact is in both states the conservative candidates got nearly 70% of the vote.
And if -- the front runner.
If you're the front runner and you keep coming in third.
In not much of -- front runner.
Frankly I do not believe.
That a Massachusetts moderate who created -- Romney care as the -- honorable Omnicare.
Is going to be in a position.
To win any debates this fall and that's part of the reason I've insisted on staying in this race we need someone.
Who can go toe to toe -- Barack Obama and debate him and win the debates decisively.
I'll always remember.
That's exactly right anywhere any trap that I'll always remember campaigning in Mississippi and Alabama because it was here in the last week.
That's the issue of gasoline and energy was crystallized.
And -- -- -- we haven't always gotten a message across in terms of getting as many votes -- Cleveland we've clearly we're changing the national dialogue all week.
You'll notice the president has now made three speeches and press conference on energy the white house Press Secretary has attacked me twice and energy.
And this afternoon we were told that the secretary of anti energy.
Announced this afternoon that he actually wasn't for European level prices of gasoline.
That he would change.
So I would say in the middle of a campaign in these two states.
We are already impacting the national debate.
On a scale that all of Romney's had money hasn't changed and we're doing it because ideas matter.
-- Reagan tradition of visionary conservatism is based on proverbs.
And the very deep belief.
The without vision the people perish.
And I believe we need a visionary leader.
Who is prepared to talk about it dramatically better future would dramatically more jobs dramatically more energy and -- much safer and stronger America.
I think that's the key to winning this ball.
Not all this -- baloney but the really big choices.
And as I -- around both states talking about two dollar fifty's and gasoline.
And it all sorts of folks believe these -- that's not possible.
On Saturday and Wall Street Journal -- Jennings sort of pieces is -- -- Newt Gingrich is right about gasoline.
And you walk through step by step why it was possible.
And and the fact is it is very -- Yesterday Stephen Moore reported in the Wall Street Journal these numbers are so amazing.
And I think the fact that I want to talk about substance is what makes this campaign different from other campaigns and is -- reason we're gonna go all the way to Tampa to compete for the nomination.
We need at a time of great problems great solutions and great solutions require substance and substance requires actually knowing something.
-- I'm partially virtually everything President Obama knows is wrong.
Ronald Reagan used to say it isn't what they don't know the so frightening as what they know that's wrong.
And he's right and here's again here's a case that.
We are told by the US Geological Survey in 1990s.
It was about a 150.
Million barrels of recoverable oil.
In North -- And this is the period of the liberals told us we're about to run out we have peak oil we're now gonna -- clay we have no future.
Well new drilling technology came along.
And we are now told.
That in fact as of this last week.
They believe there are 24.
Of recoverable oil in North Dakota long.
-- made me feel like I had to change my speech because up until last week.
I've been saying there was 25 times.
As much oil as they thought now turns -- the current estimate is there are a 160.
More oil in North Dakota than they thought there was 1990s.
And some experts believe that number is off by huge margin.
That future technology.
We'll -- be testifying about 500.
Billion barrels of oil.
Now I'm not trying to fill you up numbers that -- make a point about a general direction.
An American president who believed in energy and an American president who believes in science and technology would drive the price of gasoline below 250.
Would eliminate our dependence on the Middle East.
And we would never ever again -- with Saudi king.
You have my promise.
At a time when I hope this evening we have ended any news media talk of the inevitability.
Of their hand -- candidate.
At a time we can forget about trying to nominate -- Massachusetts moderate.
And start talking about when the primaries are over and it's clear no one person is one who would do -- best job of representing America governing.
And winning the election against Barack Obama.
And -- -- does this close this observation that something that -- travel Wagner's and Wagner says.
That's really I hope all of you.
-- take to heart and and I am very grateful.
Both in Mississippi and -- -- Just wonderful.
Relationships and friendships and my daughters -- and Jackie and -- -- Jimmy we've all had a terrific time here.
-- he's already gotten out of race not a commitment to go bass fishing and I think that.
Ray ray has indicated he thought that he could -- -- you fairly good afternoon -- Mean from from -- standpoint this is already -- great successfully.
What we've all -- we've all been out campaigning we've all had a wonderful response were -- very very grateful.
-- -- -- Second what are become a challenges will now have three or four days and news media and the losses like this which would these same people by the way -- said last June that -- And -- recycle this every six weeks.
And the biggest challenge -- -- raising money because we came in second which is as much as we wanted and we will have gotten delegates will hit.
Between Santorum myself we will get over two thirds of the delegates and the so called front runner will get less than one of the delegates but -- -- all -- talk.
The person who gives me hope.
And who makes me stay in this race and makes me committed to -- ideas all the -- -- Is.
Samuel -- Samuel Sanford is unemployed person.
Decided after hearing my speech.
Either on C span -- on on.
On the Internet.
That he really liked what I was trying to do when gasoline we talked about the fact that -- or.
And you can do one gallons of -- -- those two dollars and fifty cents.
And -- Sammy are the speech today and he -- on line gave two dollars and fifty cents.
And he became number 175.
Now Romney has all these Wall Street millionaires many of whom frank -- that are using the money you sent them as a taxpayer to -- -- to attack people.
But he's got the money we're not it can be on -- -- -- He's unhappy 175000.
Donors over 90% of them 95% given lessons for us.
So since she was number 175000.
Semitism in Stamford and it was actually a very -- I got him in the afternoon after -- come -- -- cancer treatment.
He's currently on -- -- He took out of it saves to lift.
Because he wants to be part -- rumor.
And that to me.
Was such a humbling conversation.
The dedication he had to America his commitment to -- people's campaign.
His unwillingness to give up and let the millionaires rule.
-- as an immense amount to -- things I want all of you to know.
That -- your help.
If you'll talk to your friends and neighbors go back on FaceBook if you -- Twitter if you are using.
We will continue to run -- people's campaign I believe after the two primaries -- -- -- the obvious.
That the so called front runner in fact didn't get there.
And from that point on will be in a whole new conversation.
Thank you good luck --
