Two-minute warning for Gingrich victory speech has been given…

Given Romney’s comments criticizing/attacking Gingrich in his speech, it wouldn’t be surprising if Gingrich decided to return the favor during his victory speech tonight and during his TV interviews tomorrow morning.

9:25 – Crowd chanting “Newt can win! Newt can win!” Gingrich’s opening line: “Let me first of all thank everyone in South Carolina who decided to be with us in changing Washington.”

“The American people feel that they have elites who have been trying for a half century to force us to quit being American and try some other system. It is not that I am a good debater, it is that I articulate the deepest held values of the American people.”

Gingrich praises Santorum: “Rick Santorum showed enormous courage in Iowa when he had no money, nobody covered him, and he just kept campaigning.” Crowd starts chanting “VP! VP!”

“If Barack Obama can get reelected after this disaster, think how radical he would be with four more years.”

Gingrich says if he is the GOP nominee, he will challenge President Obama to seven three-hour debates.

Gingrich says he will challenge president and “elite media” on “growing anti-religious bigotry of our elites.”

“I want America to be so energy-independent, no American president will ever bow to a Saudi king.”
