(Newser) – Rick Santorum may be done, but Newt Gingrich isn't going anywhere. In fact, now that Santorum's supporters have lost their candidate, Gingrich "humbly" asks them to look his way. “I am committed to staying in this race all the way to Tampa so that the conservative movement has a real choice," he said in a statement. He praised Santorum for waging a "remarkable campaign" and called it in part a testament to the "power of conservative principles." BuzzFeed notes that Gingrich changed his Facebook cover photo to call himself the "last conservative standing."
