ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (WFRV) - Despite his third place standing in the delegate race, GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich told local voters Friday he's not giving up. Gingrich made a campaign stop at Kroll's West in Ashwaubenon.
Gingrich spoke to a crowd of about a hundred people. He said his leadership and expertise can rebuild the country and get the national debt under control.
Gingrich did acknowledge Mitt Romney's delegate lead, and said if he doesn't not win the nomination, he will stand behind whoever represents the republican party in November, in an effort to defeat Barack Obama.
Gingrich also said, if elected, he would create personal social security savings accounts and boost domestic oil production.
"We believe that every dollar from royalties from gas and oil from federal land will go into a debt repayment fund," said Gingrich. "So we could balance the budget without using the royalties and use the royalties to pay down the national debt."
Gingrich will wrap up his Wisconsin tour Saturday in Waukesha.
