Gingrich Delays This Week's Raleigh Campaign Appearance

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich won't be coming to North Carolina after all this week.

A spokeswoman for the former House speaker's campaign in North Carolina on Monday called Gingrich's change of plans a postponement, not a cancellation. Karen Rotterman said the visit will be rescheduled. She didn't have any information on reasons for the delay.

Gingrich had been scheduled to visit the Raleigh area on Wednesday -- less than six weeks before the May 8 presidential preference primary.

Gingrich currently sits in third place in the number of committed delegates to the convention, behind front-runner Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. Gingrich has said he will run for the nomination all the way to the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
