Gingrich Says He's "A Lot More Electable Than Anybody Else"

"Anybody who is honest about it knows that no person except Christ has ever been perfect. So, I don’t claim to be the perfect candidate. I just claim to be a lot more conservative than Mitt Romney and a lot more electable than anybody else," presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich told WSC-AM, a radio station in Charleston, South Carolina.

"We think there has to be a solid conservative alternative to Mitt Romney. And I think I'm the one candidate who can bring together national security conservatives and economic conservatives and social conservatives in order to make sure we have a conservative nominee," Gingrich said.

"I wouldn't lie to the American people, I wouldn’t switch my positions for political reasons. It’s perfectly reasonable to change your position if facts change, if you see new things you didn’t see. Everybody's done that; Ronald Reagan did it. It's wrong to go around and adopt radically different positions based on your need of any one election because then people have to ask themselves, ‘What will you tell me next time?'"
