Gingrich Wins Georgia On Super Tuesday

NBC News has projected Newt Gingrich as the winner of the primary in Georgia as polls begin to close in some of the 11 Super Tuesday states.

NBC News projected the former House speaker as the winner in Georgia, the state where he served as a congressman, and which Gingrich had said was a must-win contest for him this Tuesday in order to forge ahead with his candidacy.

The Peach State was just one of 11 states playing host to nominating contests on Tuesday, which were poised to put the battle for the Republican presidential nomination on a path toward conclusion — or, alternatively, on a route that threatens a more prolonged, bitter fight.

    Lavon, if we were to keep Obimbo; ■Jan. 7, 2010 – The Obama administration announces new bureaucratic hurdles to American energy production that Secretary Salazar admitted “could add delays to the leasing and drilling process.” Gas is $2.67 a gallon. ■March 31, 2010 – Instead of opening new areas to energy exploration and development, President Obama blocks deep-ocean energy production on 60 percent of America’s Outer Continental Shelf. Gas is $2.80 a gallon. ■Dec. 1, 2010 – The president re-imposes and expands the moratorium on offshore energy production. Gas is $2.86 a gallon. ■Jan. 2, 2011 – TIME reported that the Obama administration issued the first in a series of regulations on January 2 designed to unilaterally impose a national energy tax. Gas is $3.05 a gallon. ■May 5, 2011 – The White House issues a formal statement opposing House-passed Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act and Putting the Gulf of Mexico Back to Work Act, legislation designed to jumpstart [sic] American energy production, address rising gas prices, and help create new jobs. Gas is $3.96 a gallon. ■June 21, 2011 – The White House opposes the House-passed Jobs & Energy Permitting Act that would unlock an estimated 27 billion barrels of oil and 132 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. Gas is $3.65 a gallon. ■Nov. 8, 2011 – The Obama Administration releases a plan for a five-year moratorium on offshore energy production, placing “some of the most promising energy resources in the world off-limits,” according to the House Natural Resources Committee. Gas is $3.42 a gallon. ■Jan. 18, 2012 – President Obama rejects the bipartisan Keystone XL pipeline and the more than 20,000 jobs that would come with it. Gas is $3.39 a gallon, and rising faster and earlier than ever before.

        It was closer to $5.00 gal under Bush, but the repugs only remember the last 2 months of his two terms when it dropped to $1.60 gal.

      You can drill till the cows come home but it will run out , its a finite resource. Maybe not in your life time cause you are so old . I hope it goes to ten bucks that way we will get some movement on something other than the e gas that is shoved in our faces and destroying engines, thats ok, the fat boys are getting rich on it.

    Newt was on TV last night about his $2.50 gas and he is going to drill, drill, drill. What is so sad is he knows that there are lots of people stupid enough to believe this is some kind of plan, AND WORSE that it will work. Repugs please educate yourselves. This kind of thing embarrasses us all.

    COLUMBUS, GA - Georgia is one of the ten states participating in Super Tuesday and in Muscogee County voter turnout has been very low. Super Tuesday does not seem to look so super and nearly 93% of registered voters are not coming out.
