After Alabama, Mississippi loses, pressure grows on candidate to drop out of GOP campaign
From Patch Reports Newt Gingrich's Southern strategy sputtered Tuesday, as Rick Santorum won the Mississippi and Alabama primaries. Gingrich's second-place finishes in those states after wins in Georgia and South Carolina intensified pressure for him to leave the race, in which Mitt Romney leads in total delegates and Santorum has put together a string of wins. The former House speaker vowed to stay in the race, despite the disappointing finishes, as the New York Daily News reported. Political commentator Greg Sargent in his Washington Post blog said that if Gingrich drops out, it would allow conservatives to unite behind Romney.

Tuesday, March 6, 2012
Several hundred cheering supporters gathered Tuesday night to hear him speak.
Calling the last several months the most difficult of his long political career, Newt Gingrich won Georgia’s Super Tuesday primary. “This is amazing. I hope the analysts in Washington and New York, who spent June and July saying our campaign is dead, will learn something from this crowd,” Gingrich told several hundred cheering supporters. "You believed in the power of ideas; that people can make a difference; and that Wall Street money can be defeated by Main Street work." Gingrich held his election night party at Smyrna’s Renaissance Waverly Hotel. Several networks called the election at around 7:00 pm, only moments after Georgia’s polls had closed. His supporters stressed throughout the evening that their candidate is the only …

Gingrich is strong In Georgia, but Is It enough to win all the delegates?
GOP presidential contender Newt Gingrich has the endorsement of several high-profile Georgia Republicans, including Gov. Nathan Deal. But few of them believe Gingrich can win Georgia’s Super Tuesday primary with a big enough margin to allow him to claim all of the state’s 76 delegates. “He’ll do well, but in next Tuesday’s primary, almost every candidate will get something out of Georgia,” said Sue Everhart, chair of the Georgia Republican Party. “I don’t think Newt will win with a 50-percent-plus-one margin. And endorsements from sitting governors don’t seal the deal.” The governor appeared with Gingrich this week at the state capitol in Atlanta. Deal served with Gingrich in Congress beginning in the mid-1990s. Last year, Everhart …

Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich faced off in Florida Tuesday, and less than a minute after the last polling place closed, CNN and AP called the race for Romney. State Rep. Ed Lindsey, R-Atlanta, one of Mitt Romney’s key Buckhead supporters, said he was “delighted” that the former Massachusetts governor won Florida’s primary Tuesday night. “Two things should now be abundantly clear to all Republicans,” Lindsay said. “First, we must do all we can to defeat President Obama.
