— Campaign officials for GOP Presidential contender Mitt Romney says that Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens will lead efforts in Georgia to get Romney solidified as the nominee.

Fresh off primary wins in Arizona and Michigan, the Romney campaign is moving ahead into states that will hold primaries on "Super Tuesday," March 6.

In a press statement issued Wednesday, campaign officials announced Olens will lead Romney's Georgia steering committee, which consists of state senators, representatives, mayor's and sheriff's from around the state.

“Mitt Romney’s plan for more jobs, less debt and smaller government is one of the many reasons that Georgia conservatives are getting behind his campaign,” said Attorney General Sam Olens. “The Steering Committee has been hard at work spreading Mitt Romney’s pro-growth message and will continue the hard work of defeating President Obama in November.”

Romney has emerged as the front runner in the GOP field of presidential contenders which includes former Senator Rick Santorum, Rep. Ron Paul, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

The list of Romney supporters in Southwest Georgia is scarce.

The only SOWEGA counties on the list of those with Romney campaign chairs are Stewart County and Tift County.

There are none listed for Dougherty, Lee, Worth, Baker, Mitchell or Terrell.

The head of Romney's supporters for the 2nd Congressional District is listed as Tom Morrill, a Republican party official from Byron.

SInce Romney and all the others are attacking the Catholic candidates, why not start highlighting the bad elements of the Mormans? There are quite a few that should offend women the most.No wonder the Romney bunch don't want to bring up anything to talk about religion. HE might drop in the polls once people investigate that religion.

I have not seen anyone attacking the Catholic candidates (as you describe them) for their religion. The attacks against Santorum and Gingrich have mostly been about their voting records in Congress, which is what should be discussed. Your comment about Mormons and women is insulting to say the very least, and stupid statements like that harm the whole GOP race against Obama.

The official Mormon church does not allow polygamy. Duh. What does this have to do with getting the economy going again and creating jobs?
