DOVER, Del. (AP) — The chairman of Kent County's Republican Party says he's switching his support from Mitt Romney to Newt Gingrich.

Hans Reigle on Friday said he was throwing his support to the former House speaker because he "is the only candidate who has shown a willingness to meet and talk with Delaware voters for more than an hour." The defection comes before Delaware's primary on Tuesday.

Romney is all-but-certain to win the GOP's presidential nomination and the campaign has largely shifted to the head-to-head contest against President Barack Obama. Gingrich has refused to yield and has been campaigning in Delaware despite a seemingly impossible path to the nomination.

Romney leads with 685 delegates to Gingrich's 136. Gingrich notes that Romney has not yet reached the 1,144 delegates to officially win the nomination.
