Rick Santorum; Ann Romney to Campaign in Georgia

With Newt Gingrich having virtually moved back to Georgia in advance of Super Tuesday, it was thought that he may have his “home” state to himself.  We now have word that Rick Santorum and Ann Romney will make Georgia appearances as well, giving Georgia the attention it had hoped for as Super Tuesday’s largest delegate prize.

It’s not likely the delegates that the other campaigns are after, however, as much as they may be trying to force a last stand for Gingrich.  According to current polls, Newt currently only leads in Georgia for all Super Tuesday states.  With Romney having won his (once) home state of Michigan, having Newt lose both his former state of Georgia and his current state of Virginia on the same day would be difficult to explain.  Or justify.

Dueling press releases after the jump.
