(CNN) – Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will return home to Georgia next week, his campaign announced Wednesday.
The candidate will make a two-day campaign push in familiar territory ahead of the state's Super Tuesday primary on March 6.

The announcement came the same day his chief opponent, Mitt Romney, is campaigning in the Peach State.
Fresh off his disappointing finish in three contests Tuesday night, the former Georgia congressman made no mention of the GOP race in a 12-minute speech in Cleveland Wednesday morning. Instead, Gingrich largely focused on the economy and the Obama administration.
"Part of our purpose in running is economic, to get us back on the right track. Part of our purpose in running is culture to protect the rights of Americans to worship freely without being dictated to by their government, and part our purpose in running is national security," Gingrich said. "We live in a dangerous world."
In the rust belt state, Gingrich especially hit on the need to boost American manufacturing and pointed to a now-famous Super Bowl commercial.
"While there's some controversy about it, I have to confess, I liked the Clint Eastwood ad," Gingrich said. "I liked the tone of that ad. I like the idea that the world has counted us down before, we are just regrouping."
Gingrich will also travel to California next week to hold a number of fundraising events throughout the state.
