ROME, GA -- While his Republican presidential rivals await voter returns from Michigan and Arizona, Newt Gingrich is continuing to fight for his political life in the South while on a bus tour across his home state of Georgia.
Georgia is the biggest group of delegates up on Super Tuesday so this is a big deal. And it really, really matters, Gingrich told an overflowing crowd this morning in Dalton.
The lyrics, I am a real American. Fight for what's right, fight for your life!" from the popular Hulk Hogan entrance song -- Real American -- blasted through the speakers as the former House Speaker walked off stage from both of his events Tuesday.
Gingrich wraps up his four-day bus tour in the state he represented in Congress for 20 years Friday before heading to the one Super Tuesday state above the Mason-Dixon line that the campaign hopes to compete in Ohio.

LoL. Your guy is going down.
Delegates have to be signed up in advance in Tennessee, Rick has NONE in Tennessee, he will get few if any delegates even if he wins the straw vote.
How many Super Tuesday contests are winner take all?
But a fraction of those delegates are committed delegates. Many just got assigned as delegates a snapshot in time, but few of those are required to keep for anybody.
It may have been Jedi who produced a copy of the exact count of committed delegates versus uncommitted delegates, or if not, he may know the source of the current list.
And you’re happy about this???? Moron!!
Santorum had his chance. Now is the time for Sarah Palin to come out with a full endorsement of Newt Gingrich. There are a lot of them holding on waiting and hoping she gets in at some point up to the convention. If she releases them, Newt gets a HUGE boost immediately. Should Sarah campaign with and fund raise for Newt, all hell would break loose.
Just as happy as Santorum and his SantoBots who wanted Gingrich to lose in Florida. Moron.
Keep running Newt I am going to vote for you in April.
No. Here in Tennessee, if there are no delegates signed up for the winner, they are assigned after the fact. It might cost him a couple in feckless choices, but he will still get the delegates. I cannot recall, but I believe they are bound on the first round at the convention.
