    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)

    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...

    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...

    This is NOT intended to be only a Rick Santorum thread. GOP conservatives need to work together to prevail over Mitt Romney, who is the lame GOP-e candidate. Conservatives need to cinch / clinch the GOP nomination ASAP! For the final decision of who should be the actual 2012 GOP nominee, this should be an end-of-August national convention decision, and NOT a Spring primary decision. Conservatives and the GOP as a whole need the extra time to make the best final decision about the nominee. Several weeks before the Iowa caucus, there was all of this discussion of having one...

    The redoubtable media watchdog Media Matters has thrown a red challenge flag over what it deems a “manufactured attack” by Politico on Obama Energy Secretary Steven Chu. At issue is whether Chu told the House Appropriations Committee—as Politico initially reported—that the administration’s goal was not to lower the price of fuel oil but to decrease America’s dependency on it. Luckily, replay footage of the relevant exchange between Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-MS) and Chu is available for review (cue 2:56). I have now watched the clip several times and am of a mind that Politico was too hasty in offering a...

Gingrich spent more than $5 million using Ohio vendors for his presidential campaign in the past four months alone — far more than any of the other three GOP contenders. He spent the bulk of that money with two companies — Akron-based InfoCision and Delaware-based Strategic Media Placement Inc. — an affiliate of the Strategy Group for Media.
