Republican presidential candidate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, speaks during the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference in Camp Hill, Pa., Saturday March 24, 2012.

Newt Gingrich will make it to the Republican convention, even if he has to charge supporters $50 for a photo and cut some of his staff's pay to get there. "Look, clearly we're gonna have to go on a fairly tight budget to get from here to Tampa, but I think we can do it, and I think we will do it," the candidate told reporters in Maryland on Tuesday. Newt spent $200,000 more than he raised last month and has just as much debt as he does money in the bank.
