Newt backer: “We’re going all the way to convention”

Newt Gingrich’s campaign borrowed a page from the Mitt Romney playbook in Florida Monday morning, sending a surrogate to a Romney event in Jacksonville ┬áto talk to reporters.

Rick Tyler, head of Gingrich’s “super PAC,” said Florida voters are “sick and tired” of the negative tone the campaign has taken as Romney steps up his attacks on the former U.S. House speaker, his chief rival for the GOP presidential nomination.

And while Tyler wasn’t predicting a win for Gingrich, he said the race will go on past Tuesday’s primary election in Florida.

“We’re going all the way to convention. We’ll see you all there. I’m sorry, we’re going to make this exciting. One thing we’ve done, we’ve not made this boring,” Tyler said.
