Ohio and Georgia GOP Chairs Talk Super Tuesday

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

By the numbers, Georgia is the biggest prize this Super Tuesday with 76 delegates. Perhaps most telling will be Newt Gingrich’s performance in his home state: if he wants to stay competitive in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, he’s going to need a decisive victory in the Peach State. Ohio, with 66 delegates of its own, may be the biggest psychological prize. Many have declared this the race to watch, as no Republican nominee has ever become president without winning the swing state in the general election.

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

The results are in. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney edged a narrow victory in Ohio, the most hotly contested state, and Massachusetts, Virginia, Vermont, Idaho and Alaska. Elsewhere, Rick Santorum won Oklahoma and Tennessee and Newt Gingrich won his home state of Georgia. But what do these results mean for the rest of the GOP campaign?

Super Tuesday Results in Ohio, the Ultimate Electoral Bellwether

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Of all the states up for grabs on Super Tuesday, Ohio was the biggest prize. Ohio has long been considered a bellwether in presidential politics. Living in a rust belt state, Ohioans are more concerned about their economic future than ever before, but social issues like abortion and marriage are also near and dear to the Ohio conservatives who showed up at the polls yesterday. So what decided Ohio Republican votes on Super Tuesday this year? What do the Ohio results forecast for the general election?

Taking a Page from the Obama Playbook?

Tuesday, March 06, 2012

As voters from 10 states across the country head to the polls on Tuesday, Republican candidates will be hoping to secure as many of the 437 delegates as possible. To win the party nomination, a candidate must obtain more than half of the total 2,286 delegates at the Republican National Convention. That means that what happens today could change the entire course of the primary season. Mitt Romney may be leading the pack, but he’s still far from acquiring enough delegates to become the nominee. The last race that was this close was in 2008 between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Anti-Abortion Bill Divides GOP in Ohio

Thursday, March 01, 2012

In Ohio, one of the main battleground states for the Super Tuesday primaries, the so-called "heartbeat" bill is dividing lines Republican candidates. The heartbeat bill, if passed later this year, will ban abortions if a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can occur as early as five-and-a-half weeks. The bill also contains no exceptions for abortion in the case of rape, incest or the health of the mother. Rick Santorum has thrown his weight behind the bill while Mitt Romney has stayed silent on the issue.
