Newt Gingrich appeared on Hannity to clear up comments he made on Fox News Sunday, in which he stated that Mitt Romney is “far and away the mostly likely Republican nominee.” He told Sean what he said “got somehow translated almost instantly into something I didn’t say.”

He likened the campaign to yesterday’s Masters Golf Tournament, where the “two guys in sudden death were neither one in first place” but that neither of them dropped out in the first round.

Mentioning the “elite media” Gingrich questioned why it’s so hard for them to get into their heads that he’s staying in the race. He pointed to his forehead and said, “I am in here, I think I’m going to get it tattooed up here, all the way to Tampa.”
