CNN.com Live: GOP candidates make 11th hour appeals

Atlanta (CNN) – Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are grinding it out in Ohio Monday, making final pitches to voters in the Rust Belt State that will be the most watched contest on Super Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich focuses his day on trying to win support in Tennessee, a state that is considered important to his Southern strategy and Ron Paul campaigns in Idaho. Ten states will vote on Tuesday, the biggest election day so far of the 2012 race for the Republican presidential nomination.

    I don't see Willard winning any rust belt states nor any southern states. This looks like it's going all the way to the convention.
