ROMNEY WON LARGE VICTORIES IN ALL FIVE PRIMARIES LAST NIGHT...INCLUDING DELAWARE, WHERE GINGRICH HAD CAMPAIGNED HEAVILY AND PINNED HIS HOPES FOR A VICTORY.

"You have to give him some credit. This guy has worked 6 years, put together a big machine and has put together a serious campaign. I think obviously that I would be a better candidate. But the objective fact is the voters didn't think that."
