NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Mitt Romney is still struggling with conservatives but he has the numbers on his side.
As the GOP Presidential race takes a turn to the South, Newt Gingrich is on home turf, and talking about gas prices an issue he hopes will kick start his campaign.
"If you prefer algae, vote for Obama. But if you prefer drilling and two-fifty a gallon, we want you to join us no matter what your background," said Newt Gingrich, Presidential Candidate.
While Gingrich won his home state of Georgia on Super Tuesday, he was vying for third or fourth place with Ron Paul in most of the other states.
Rick Santorum's supporters are urging Gingrich to get out of the way.
"And if this is a two person race, we will nominate a conservative as President of the United States," said Rick Santorum, Presidential Candidate.
Mitt Romney is the frontrunner after a string of Super Tuesday wins, but his narrow win in Ohio proved conservatives still aren't won over.
Romney's is counting on delegates.
"We've got the time and the resources and a plan to get all the delegates and we think that'll get done before convention," said Mitt Romney, Presidential Candidate.
Romney's campaign wants everyone to know how far along he is in the delegate race, saying it would take an "Act of God" for one of the other candidates to win.
