Newt Gingrich: Palin’s Comments Are a Signal to Conservatives to Vote For Me

The Politico caught up with Newt Gingrich last night after Sarah Palin’s endorsement on Hannity:

“We’re thrilled – I just talked to Todd and we’re just thrilled,” he told POLITICO as he headed into his hotel here for the night. “It’s a signal to every conservative that the one conservative vote that’s effective is to Newt Gingrich and that’s very helpful.”

Palin’s expression of support, Gingrich said, is part of a rush of support he believes will power him to victory on Saturday – and from there, into the candidate who will beat Mitt Romney to the GOP nomiantion.

“Lots of different things are working together to help us,” Gingrich said.

That remains to be seen — polls still show Romney ahead, and he has organizational and financial advantages, if not demographic ones, in the state. He also still is facing a split conservative field with Rick Perry and Rick Santorum both peeling off votes.
