9:07p – Newt and Callista Gingrich walking up to the podium at campaign HQ in Orlando.
Not backing down anytime soon… Sign on podium reads “46 States To Go.”
Thanks his daughters who have been stumping for him in Florida. Calls his grandchildren “my two major debate coaches.”
“It is now clear this will be a two-person race between the conservative Newt Gingrich and the Massachusetts Moderate.”
Newt goes back to media-bashing – “We are going to contest every place, we are going to win, and we will be in Tampa as the nominee in August.”
“We’re going to have people power defeat money power in the next six months.” Has somebody told Sheldon Adelson this?
“You can’t imagine how radical he [Obama] will be in a second term.”
Tweet from @HuffPostMedia: Newt Gingrich makes a positive mention of David Broder, possibly the most elite media person of all time. Contradictions… #flprimary
If elected Gingrich says he will ask Congress to pass repeal of Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, and Sarbanes-Oxley before he is sworn into office, so “We can be off to a pretty good opening morning.”
“The very first executive order will abolish all of the White House czars at that moment. All of this will happen about two hours after the Inaugural Address.”
Pledges he will build Keystone pipeline. Urges Canadians not to make a deal with the Chinese.
Vows to reinstate Reagan’s Mexico City Policy – no U.S. money for abortions anywhere in the world.
Closing comments: “I pledge you my life, my fortune, my sacred honor, this is about America.”
Cue Brooks and Dunn’s “Only in America”

9:23 – Gingrich speech ends. David Gergen points out that Gingrich did not congratulate Romney for winning the Florida primary.
