Newt Gingrich says he will stay in the GOP race for the White House because it's "not over til it's over."

Gingrich said he plans to stay in until at least June 26, but hinted at challenging front-runner Mitt Romney beyond that if he doesn't have the 1,144 delegates needed by that date to clinch the nomination.

If he can get to 1,144, he's the nominee," Gingrich told CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "But if he can't get to 1,144, on 26th of June, it will be a wide open primary at that point. If Romney can't clinch it, I think it becomes pretty wide open."

"I think this is not over until it's over and obviously, if he does become the nominee, I will support him," the former House speaker said of Romney, calling him "the weakest front runner in modern times."

Romney leads Gingrich, former Pennsylvannia Sen. Rick Santorum and Texas Rep. Ron Paul in the delegate count. About a dozen contests remain, the last of which is Utah on June 26.

But Gingrich said that if Romney did not win outright, "we'll have a discussion for those 60 days for who ought to be the right person to beat Barack Obama."
