LOS ANGELES, (AP) — Newt Gingrich is dramatically curtailing his campaign schedule and laying off about a third of his campaign staff as he focuses on a last-ditch effort to win the Republican presidential nomination at the convention in Tampa.

Gingrich spokesman RC Hammond says that Gingrich still hopes to deny GOP front-runner Mitt Romney the 1,144 delegates he needs to win the nomination.
Gingrich plans to spend much less time in primary states and instead personally call convention delegates to try to persuade them to back him in Tampa.
Hammond said Tuesday night that the new strategy doesn't change Gingrich's promise to support Romney if Romney does amass the necessary delegates before the party convenes in August.
The changes in Gingrich's schedule and campaign staff were first reported by Politico.
