BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Mitt Romney made a clean sweep of the GOP Presidential Primary on Tuesday, winning in all five states that hosted contests.

“Tonight is the beginning of the end of the disappointments of the Obama years, and it’s the start of a new and better chapter that we will write together,” said Romney, who spoke just 30 miles from where he launched his bid for the White House last spring.

Newt Gingrich is expected to reevaluate his position in the race this week. He told Eyewitness News Anchor Keith Radford why he is staying in the contest during an exclusive interview on Friday.

"Almost everywhere I go, people walk up and say 'I'm glad you're still in the race. I'm glad we have a choice. Don't let the media tell you what you have to do," said Gingrich.
