Presidential candidate Mitt Romney brushed aside fresh questions about his ability to appeal to Southern Republicans after his losses yesterday in Mississippi and Alabama, saying he has won other states and garnered more delegates and votes than any of his primary rivals.

“If I’m a weak frontrunner, what does that make Newt Gingrich?” Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, said in an interview on Fox News. “Some who are very conservative may not be yet in my camp, but they will be when I become the nominee, when I face Barack Obama.”

He declined to weigh in on whether Gingrich, a former U.S. House speaker, should exit the race, saying such judgments were up to each candidate.
