Determined to fight: GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich addresses supporters Friday from the podium during a rally in Ellicott Square. Developer Carl P. Paladino, who introduced Gingrich, stands behind the candidate to his right. Despite the near certainty that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will face President Obama in November, Gingrich vowed to continue his campaign right up until the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.
