MERRIMACK, N.H. — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, finishing out of the top three in New Hampshire's Republican primary, says he's going to focus on jobs when he campaigns in South Carolina.

Gingrich tells his supporters that he is offering American voters a dramatic change in how government operates in Washington.

He says that his campaign has an opportunity to unify the country around the message of jobs.

Early results from the New Hampshire primary show Gingrich battling rival Rick Santorum for fourth place. The former House speaker finished fourth in Iowa's caucuses last week.
