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.
