Kingston: Santorum no longer a third wheel

(CNN) - Georgia Rep. Jack Kingston, a strong Newt Gingrich backer, said Wednesday Rick Santorum made big gains the previous night as a result of the ongoing battle between Gingrich and Mitt Romney.

"Santorum has benefited from the fact that it has been perceived as a two-man race. All the attacks have been on Newt. Now if Rick is going to be rising in the polls, I think he's going to start getting negative ads too," Kingston said on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien."

The liberal church of Herman Cain

Editor’s note: CNN’s John Blake was formerly a member of Antioch Baptist Church North. He left 13 years ago.

Atlanta (CNN) – Herman Cain has vaulted to the top of the polls as a Republican presidential candidate, but there’s one audience that may prove tougher for him to win over: his hometown church.

Cain, a conservative who recently said African-Americans were “brainwashed” into voting Democratic, is an associate minister at an Atlanta megachurch that has been a stronghold of liberal activism and is led by a pastor who cites Malcolm X as one of his influences.
