Campaigning to Super Tuesday

Republican presidential candidates are on the road before the biggest day of the Republican Primary to date.

Super Tuesday is one day away and Republican presidential candidates are furiously campaigning to sway voters in ten different states from Alaska to Virginia.

Ohio is currently in a dead heat between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. A recent poll by Quinnipiac University has Romney edging out Santorum by 3 percentage points, 34 percent to 31 percent respectively.

Romney received Monday the endorsement of the second ranking Republican in the House, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia.
Cantor said Romney is the only candidate who has come out with "a bold pro-growth, pro-jobs plan for the future."

After campaigning in Alaska, Congressman Ron Paul received the endorsement of Mrs. Joe Miller, the wife of popular Tea Party Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in the state of Alaska during the 2010 election.

Paul is focusing his campaign efforts on Alaska in an attempt to secure his first victory in the Republican Primary.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has been campaigning in Georgia, a must-win in the candidate's eyes.

"I have to win Georgia, I think, to be credible in the race," Gingrich said Thursday.

Gingrich is currently polling well ahead of the other candidates in Georgia according to a poll by Public Policy Polling of North Carolina. The poll shows Gingrich with 47 percent while Romney and Santorum trail at 24 and 19 percent respectively.

Despite dolling out the largest number of delegates so far, this year's Super Tuesday won't be quite as "Super" as 2008's. Only 419 delegates will be up for grabs come Tuesday, about half of the delegates that were up for grabs in 2008.
