PANAMA CITY/ORLANDO, Florida - Republican US presidential candidate Newt Gingrich received the endorsement of former rival Herman Cain on Saturday and vowed to fight until the end no matter what happens in Florida's upcoming primary vote.

Cain, who ended his presidential campaign in December under the weight of sexual harassment allegations, made the endorsement at an event with Gingrich in West Palm Beach. It is unclear how much impact it will have for Gingrich in Florida, which has been trending toward rival Mitt Romney ahead of the state's vote on Tuesday.

"I hereby officially and enthusiastically endorse Newt Gingrich for president of the United States," Cain said.
