Newt Gingrich told NPR that “he sees no reason to exit the Republican presidential race and that there’s a chance of a new contender emerging at the party’s convention in August.”

Said Gingrich: “I’m not so sure you wouldn’t get a series of brand new players.”

Also interesting: Gingrich admitted for the first time he was likely to finish third in the delegate race.
