Gingrich Makes Last Stand in Must-Win Georgia as Hopes Sputter

Campaigning across his adopted home state of Georgia, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich this week promised $2.50 gasoline, lambasted President Barack Obama and excoriated Iran in a last-ditch push for a presidential primary victory in a place he represented for 20 years.

Traveling from hangar to gymnasium to Statehouse, and buoyed by a fresh infusion of super-PAC cash from billionaire Sheldon Adelson, Gingrich predicted a rout on March 6, when 11 states hold primaries. He told the Associated Press yesterday that he will win Georgia, which has more delegates at stake than any other Super Tuesday state, “and win it decisively.”
