Looking to build, Gingrich eyes South Carolina
With NH newspaper endorsement in hand, Gingrich schedules town hall in South Carolina
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich is hoping to turn an endorsement from New Hampshire's largest newspaper into momentum elsewhere. He's heading to South Carolina for a three-day campaign swing with tea party members.

His leading rival, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, has no campaign appearances on Monday and his advisers are working to downplay The New Hampshire Union Leader's backing of Gingrich. The newspaper's rejection of Romney on Sunday could reshape the entire campaign.

The Union Leader's editorial is a sign that conservative concerns about Romney's shifts on crucial issues like abortion and gay rights are unlikely to fade. At the same time, the endorsement boosts Gingrich's conservative credentials.

Romney plans to the campaign Tuesday in Florida.
