Gingrich: A Santorum Vote is Basically a Romney Vote

CNN reports:

 

 

During a press availability Monday, Gingrich pointed out why he’s a stronger candidate than the former Pennsylvania senator.

“Evangelical voters would like to have a nominee that will win a general election, and somebody who set the all time Pennsylvania record for the size of their defeat has a harder case to make as to why they could be elected,” Gingrich told reporters.

“If you vote for Sen. Santorum, in effect you’re voting for Gov. Romney to be the nominee because he’s not going to beat him. And the only way you can stop Gov. Romney for all practical purposes is to vote for Gingrich. That’s just a fact and it’s a mathematical fact now.”

In the campaign event before the press conference, Gingrich hit Mitt Romney’s electability, saying, “Ask yourself this simple question: Why would you want to nominate the guy who lost to the guy who lost to Obama?”
