Newt Gingrich goes to Disney

McClatchy Newspapers' Lesley Clark reports:
Newt Gingrich's last scheduled stop before awaiting returns in Orlando was to a polling place in Disney's planned community of Celebration. He visited with a small crowd of residents on the manicured lawn outside the picture-perfect Heritage Hall. Ron Paul signs seemed to outnumber Gingrich signs, though a few were sporting Gingrich stickers. 
He told one woman, "I need your help." 
Spokesman RC Hammond told reporters that Gingrich intends to keep competing, across the board. 
"The media's picked front runner hasn't broken 50 percent yet," he said. "That leaves a lot of math out there for the conservative side of the party to pick up, which is how we'll stay competitive in the nomination. Which is why it will last late into the spring, because we will continue to bring in delegates, we will continue to bring in large amounts of support. As long as the tea party supporters keep coming our way, we're going to be able to do very well." 
He also said of the campaign's FEC report. which says $5 million was raised from $250 contributors: "We are a campaign of small donor donations," he said.
