Mississippi and Alabama: A MUST for Gingrich or Santorum!

The South has always been a must-win for any GOP presidential contender.

But this year it is especially critical for Speaker Newt Gingrich and Senator Rick Santorum to carry the southern states in order to amass enough delegates to go forward to the 2012 nomination in Tampa, in hopes of a face-off against President Barack Obama in November. 

As I said in the above quote in the Memphis Commercial Appeal newspaper, Mississippi and Alabama primaries are 'do or die' contests for both candidates. 

It's true that Governor Mitt Romney currently leads in delegates, but with MS, AL and Texas primaries on the horizon, those numbers could change the landscape significantly.  And the way I see it... it's going to come down to the Evangelicals and Christian conservative voters this year. No doubt about it!
