Santorum and Gingrich Campaigns Head to South Carolina

Neither of them finished in the top three in New Hampshire, but Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum both say their campaigns will continue.

The two of them battled for fourth place behind Mitt Romney, Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman.

Gingrich says he’ll campaign tomorrow in South Carolina.

“I’m asking each of you not to slow down, in the next couple of days, make a list of every person you know in South Carolina and every person you know in Florida cause those are the next two great contests.”

The former House speaker said the party needs someone who can debate and defeat President Barack Obama.

Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum said he’s not concerned by what he called temporary setbacks.

“We built this campaign in NH in a very short period of time we didn’t spend a lot of money but we put a lot of effort into this and we put our message out there we came where the campaign was and we delivered a message not just for New Hampshire but we delivered a message for America.”

Santorum said the party still needs to nominate what he calls the ``true conservative.''
