The Gingrich campaign is demanding that Mitt Romney split the 50 delegates that he won in Florida.

Newt Gingrich is reportedly contesting the Florida primary results because of a Republican National Committee rule that says there can be no winner-take-all State primaries prior to April 1.

The Gingrich campaign is demanding that Mitt Romney split the 50 delegates that he won in the State based on percentage, according to a Fox News report.

The RNC sent a warning to the Republican Party of Florida stating that a winner-take-all States could not have a primary until April 1, but says it has no further authority to intervene unless Gingrich files a proper contest to the results.

Romney had a double-digit victory in Florida, gaining 46 percent of the vote to Gingrich’s 32 percent.  Rick Santorum received 13 percent of the vote, and Ron Paul finished with 7 percent.
