Republican presidential candidate New Gingrich cited the Book of Proverbs as a reason for staying in what the polls and many political pundits are calling a losing race.

"I've stayed in the race because I think that Proverbs is right ... 'without vision, people perish,'" the GOP presidential candidate said, paraphrasing Proverbs 29:18.
