CNN.com Live: campaigning for Super Tuesday and beyond

Atlanta (CNN) – Newt Gingrich is looking beyond Super Tuesday as his rivals keep their focus on the biggest day so far in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. At stake, 419 delegates.

Gingrich heads to Alabama early this afternoon for two campaign events before returning to Atlanta for Election Night. The former House speaker is expected to easily win his home state of Georgia, which he has said is crucial to his campaign for the nomination. But Gingrich's decision to campaign in Alabama, which holds a primary next week, is a clear sign the former speaker has no intention of dropping out of the race even if he performs poorly outside of Georgia.

    Typical – folks in Alabama can't read - he's trying to enter thru an exit.

    If they put pictures on the ballot, folks MIGHT make the choice they meant to.

    Voter ID laws.
    I watched an interview last night with an Alabama state legislator defending the new laws. Alabama cites "wide spread" voter fraud has reason for enacting photo ID laws. When asked to cite examples to show how "wide spread" the fraud is occurring, a Republican state legislator cited "three incidents" of voter fraud, "occurring primarity in districts with minority majorities".

    When asked for details, the legislator cited a clerk that was convicted of voter fraud. The clerk had been accussed of the improper handling of absentee ballots. A clerk. Absentee ballots. How does the new photo ID laws address that sort of voter fraud? It doesn't.

    i wish that all of these republicans would lay off of Obama about his health care bill and they are praising Mitt Romney for his health care law in the state of Mass. and he said the difference between his and Obamas is that his doesnt have as many pages as Obamas but everyone needs to realize one thing and that is Mitts health care law is only for the state of Mass. and Obamas is for the entire country of United States and one thing everyone needs to realize is the reason there hasnt been that much done in the last 3years is because the House Republicans has held this country and its business hostage just because they dont like Obama and if the rest of the country would realize that then they are probably gonna get voted out of the house and let the democrats take back control and let them get the job done for this country. And their talking about jobs the Majority of the jobs lost was lost under Bush's watch and this country was going down hill so fast and Obama has gotten it turned around a little but he could have gotten alot more done if the republicans didnt have control of the house, it it was left upto me i would send all of the republicans in the house and in the senate home unemployed and let them see how the rest of America feels.

    They got rid of Imus when he shot his mouth off. I don't see any reason why we shouldn't get rid of Rush Limbaugh. He does not set a good example for people. He is also addicted to Oxycodone, what is up with that? Do we want prescription drug addicts advising us on policy and politics. His time has come, and he should go!
