Santorum to campaign in Georgia

ATLANTA (AP) -- Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum will campaign in Georgia on Sunday in advance of the state's March 6 primary.

Santorum will offer the keynote address at the "God and Country" rally at First Redeemer Church in Cumming.

The former Pennsylvania senator was last in the state in November, when he addressed a forum in Gwinnett County.

A recent Georgia poll found Santorum trailing Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney in the state.

But Santorum has surged nationally in recent weeks, pulling off a trio of wins in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri. He also narrowly won the leadoff caucus state of Iowa.

Among Santorum's prominent Georgia backers are state Public Service Commission Chairman Tim Echols and state Rep. Buzz Brockway.

With 76 delegates, Georgia is the biggest prize on Super Tuesday.

It’s time the campaigns recognized the meaning and application of MAD, Mutually Assured Destruction. At the current rate of attacking each other and offering very little if any tangible ideas to unite and move America forward other than platitudes and that they are not Obama, the reelection of our current leader may be a real possibly.

Will these candidates, after spending millions to call attention to each other’s defects really be able to convince the country they will support another candidate winner after the convention without looking like LIARS? (even for Politicians and that is REALLY saying something) At the rate there are going, there may well be NOTHING left to win but the MINORITY position the party held for YEARS.
Mud seems to work in the short run, but the audiences are getting smaller along the way. On the bright side, all the millions spent will help the economy – somehow.
