Newt Gingrich Predicts He’ll Rise From The Southern States
" HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Far behind in the race for the delegates needed to win the Republican presidential nomination, Newt Gingrich on Tuesday forecast a third campaign resurgence from a string of Southern primaries that lie ahead.

Campaigning in Alabama as voting was under way in Georgia, where Gingrich has said he must score a badly needed victory, the former House speaker called for a renewed commitment to space exploration during a visit to one of the nation’s monuments to its venerable space program.

“This is the launching pad for the next phase of excitement and invention,” he sat at the museum of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center.

He was referring to the space program, but may as well have been talking about his up-and-down campaign.

“This is the country of the future,” he told more than 300 people standing in the shadow of an enormous Saturn rocket.

Gingrich was counting on a big win in Tuesday’s primary in Georgia, part of which he represented in Congress for two decades. He also predicted better-than-expected finishes in Tennessee and Oklahoma in the 10-state series of contests.

By campaigning in Alabama, he signaled his intention to stay in the race.

Gingrich arrived in Atlanta on Tuesday evening to await the returns but was returning to Alabama first thing Wednesday and campaigning in Mississippi on Thursday. Both states hold their primaries March 13. "
