Internal memo: Gingrich looking ahead to Super Tuesday

in Uncategorized by

An internal Newt Gingrich campaign memo obtained by the Daily Caller (via The Political Wire) claims “this race is just getting started.”

The memo stresses that Mitt Romney currently has just 33 of the 1144 delegates needed (Gingrich has 25 of 1144).

In addition, more than 20% of the available delegates (467) will be awarded on Super Tuesday March 6, 2012, and the memo notes that, one of the Super Tuesday states is Georgia, with 76 delegates at stake. To put that in perspective, “even if Romney wins Florida on Tuesday, he will only have 83 total delegates; Newt’s home state could effectively cancel out his entire delegate count to date.”
