Gingrich: Conservative Romney Rival Will Emerge

Friday, 06 January 2012 09:18 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says he's confident GOP conservatives will "gradually coalesce" around a candidate who can deny the party's nomination to Mitt Romney.

Gingrich calls himself "a Reagan conservative" and says that's the kind of nominee the GOP needs to defeat President Barack Obama.

The Georgia Republican says Romney has got to show that he can "get a majority somewhere." Romney won about 25 percent of the vote in Iowa.

Gingrich also tells ABC's "Good Morning America" that "one of us will eventually emerge as the conservative alternative and will beat Romney."

He didn't name names, but Gingrich apparently was talking about himself, former Sen. Rick Santorum and Gov. Rick Perry. Gingrich has attacked Texas Congressman Ron Paul for his views on foreign policy and national security.
