Celebrating twin victories in Mississippi and Alabama.
Barry is with his wife late last night he says the front runner status in this campaign need to be -- Yeah yeah.
We will compete everywhere.
We will give me -- -- -- the time is now.
For conservatives to pull together.
The time is now to make sure.
To make sure.
Do we have the best chance to win this election the best chance to win this election is to nominate a conservative.
To go up against Barack Obama.
We'll -- taken -- on every issue.
This morning and good morning everybody I'm Bill -- here in America's Newsroom you do it I'm doing well and awaiting your return all us -- -- -- -- only able to keep us at bay for so long I play hard to get that I can do it in our 2 hours morning I'm Nelson have brought in for Martha MacCallum this morning.
Newt Gingrich grabbing second in both states and Mitt Romney third.
Gingrich put all of his chips in the south but despite the loss he says he's not going anywhere.
At a time when I hope this evening we have ended any news media talk of the inevitability.
Of their hand picked candidate.
At a time we can forget about trying to nominate a Massachusetts moderates 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.
A certain this morning this race is far from over Stephen Hayes senior writer weekly standard Fox News contributor good morning to you I should point -- will probably did not make his speech last night.
But he's set for some appearances today in New York okay where are we now what his last night means.
-- it is such a fascinating result last night because.
On the one -- and Mitt Romney.
Like since his delegate lead he actually got more delegates last night when you include American small one Hawaii and it delegates it will likely come out of there.
Mitt Romney is probably gonna end up with 41.
Delegates or so out of last night Rick Santorum with 35.
Newt Gingrich with I think 24 so Mitt Romney extends his delegate lead.
But of course the story is that his weaknesses remain the things that he brought to this race things that have plagued him at every step.
He has not solve those problems and Rick Santorum continues to surprise.
And over perform in places out that -- that are friendly to him and his strong conservative views and what about Newt Gingrich Alabama neighboring state of Georgia to the west.
Yet this is I think it's not a good night for Newt Gingrich what was most -- -- last night was to hear Newt Gingrich.
Talk about how he sees his role in the campaign going forward this is no longer about winning for Newt Gingrich this is now all about denying Mitt Romney.
Did the requisite number of delegates 1144.
To win the nomination before he gets the convention indicator it was quite open with that both in his speech.
And in an interview with Brett -- here on fox last night that was late last night would he say to Brett.
He basically said look if you count the delegates -- -- that were taken tonight in Mississippi and Alabama.
Rick Santorum and I took two thirds we denied Mitt Romney a majority those delegates and he talked about this partnership he said you know there's going to be this period.
After the final primary.
Has been held.
Where there's going to be a dialogue among Republicans and it'll be sixty days and we can have this conversation in the nominee could be Rick Santorum.
It could be Newt Gingrich and he twice said.
That something else -- happened coming out of those that the end of the primaries and caucuses so.
Interesting to see what new Gingrich -- that's our -- to crystal ball quickly is it over in May.
I mean right that's the real question I don't think -- I would say June or August.
Mitt Romney has captured 52% of the available delegates to this point he needs to win about 49%.
Going forward and if this becomes a two man race it seems to be edging in that direction but it's not a two man race.
Until Newt Gingrich it gets out if in fact he does if it becomes a two man race banners things change and next up Illinois thank you Stephen -- good to have -- on -- up our Alley.
