    Palin tells Fox News Neil Cavuto “I knew you were going to ask me that, and I am just the poorest politician-sounding pundit,” Palin said. “It is tough for me to spin out of a question like that when it comes from a Fox reporter. If it comes from another reporter, I can spin out of it. Since it came from you, I will tell you, I won’t sound like a politician and I will tell you who I voted for tonight.” Palin laid out her criteria in her decision. “I considered who can best bust through the Orwellian Obama...

    Mr. Gingrich is poised to gain a substantial share of the state’s 76 delegates to the Republican convention. “In the morning, we are going on to Alabama,” Mr. Gingrich told an enthusiastic crowd here on Tuesday night, some waving “Newt-a-Mania” signs. “We’re going on to Mississippi. We’re going on to Kansas. And that’s just this week.” Alabama and Mississippi, which hold the next primaries on the calendar next Tuesday, both figure into Mr. Gingrich’s grand strategy for reanimating his candidacy by carrying Super Tuesday momentum into other victories in the South. So does Kansas, which holds its caucuses on Saturday.

    Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) -- Newt Gingrich will become the third Republican presidential candidate to receive Secret Service protection. Service protection begins as early as Wednesday, according to a source from the Gingrich campaign. A spokesperson with the U.S. Secret Service would not confirm or comment on any details, deliberations or assessments related to providing service protection for Gingrich or any presidential candidate. The Gingrich campaign submitted paperwork requesting Secret Service protection in late February. Until now the former House speaker was paying a private security firm to protect Gingrich and his wife at public events....

    ATLANTA — Newt Gingrich won the Georgia primary Tuesday, ending a weeks-long drought in the Republican presidential race for the former House speaker who quickly tried to capitalize by looking to upcoming Southern primaries. Far behind in the Republican presidential delegate hunt, Gingrich campaigned in Alabama even before the polls closed in Georgia, and predicted his neighboring state would mark a third resurgence for his up-and-down campaign. In visiting Huntsville, he also sought to get GOP voters to look beyond Super Tuesday, with Gingrich only assured one of the 10 states voting. "For the third time, we're going to come...

    KINGSPORT, Tenn. -- Republican Newt Gingrich launched a final, two-day swing across the South on Monday in advance of the biggest voting day so far of the year. Gingrich planned to campaign on Monday and Super Tuesday in Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia -- and vowed to exceed expectations in all the Southern states voting this week and next. Gingrich touted new polls showing that he is closing the gap in Tennessee, and he predicted again that he will win his home state of Georgia with ease. In a morning interview on CNN, Gingrich admitted that losing Georgia could end his...

    With all that ails the nation, Meet the Press host David Gregory actually began his interview with Newt Gingrich by asking him about contraceptives and Rush Limbaugh. "This is the most fundamental assault on religious liberty in American history despite every effort by the elite media to distort what it's about. It's not about contraceptives... It is about whether a religious institution should be coarsed by the federal government." "Should the President apologize to all the men and women in uniform who he in fact abandoned when he apologized to religious fanatics in Afghanistan." (snip)

    Hotair ^ | 03/06/2012 | Ed Morrissey
    Pundits have talked for weeks about the possibilities for a brokered convention after having seen one of the more volatile nominating contests in memory. Neither party has had a brokered convention for 50 years, however, and it’s not because we haven’t had competitive primaries in that time. Usually, voters tend to hit a tipping point and start getting behind a leading candidate, which effectively ends the competitive phase of a nomination fight and puts the party on a glide path to a unifying convention in the late summer. That point gets reached when one candidate simply starts winning often enough...

    ...and neither can Gingrich. FHQ has been saying since our Very Rough Estimate of the delegate counts a couple of weeks ago that Romney is the only candidate who has a chance to get there. But, of course, I have not yet shown my work. No, it isn't mathematically impossible, but it would take either Gingrich or Santorum over-performing their established level of support in the contests already in the history books to such an extent that it is all but mathematically impossible. Santorum, for instance, has averaged 24.2% of the vote in all the contests. Since (and including) his...

    March 6 VA Republican Presidential Primary, your 4 voting options On March 6th, the Republican Party of Virginia will be holding its Presidential Primary at your local polling precincts. Polls open just like regular voting times, 6am to 7pm. You have 4 choices: Vote for Romney, vote for Paul, stay home/don’t vote or show up and do an “undervote”. Please do go to the polls and vote, if possible. More votes at the poll show more Republican strength. An undervote allows you to vote (in person or absentee) by showing up, pressing the VOTE button without choosing either candidate. Some...

Mitt may do better in South than expected. Santorum definitely the loser in tonight's 3 polls. Good news for both Romney (in OH and TN) and Gingrich (in TN and GA)

    It's all very disappointing. Based on polls, It appears Newt Gingrich is not likely to be the nominee. But why? He is (in my mind) the most qualified man in the country to be President. He's the most knowledgeable and articulate candidate and, without question, the best debater in either party. Everyone knows he would obliterate Obama in a debate. He has the best and boldest ideas to get this country back on track. And I think that he would, by his sheer brilliance, and ability to put forth a convincing argument, garner enough independents to vote for him to...
