Gingrich campaigns at UW-Oshkosh

By The Associated Press. CREATED Mar 30, 2012

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- Dozens of people are filing into a gym at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh to listen to Newt Gingrich.
  
Gingrich was scheduled to spend about an hour speaking Friday before heading on to Green Bay for two afternoon campaign stops.
  
Wisconsin's presidential primary is set for Tuesday. But Gingrich is struggling. He has won just two primaries, in South Carolina and Georgia, and has laid off a third of his campaign staff.
  
Earlier Friday morning, Gingrich told WTMJ radio in Milwaukee that Mitt Romney is clearly the front runner and will probably earn the 1,144 delegates needed for the Republican presidential nomination.
  
UW-Oshkosh freshman Brent Hemb says he's still interested in Gingrich. He says his parents say Gingrich is smart and he likes listening to intelligent people.
