Hundreds of Gingrich supporters packed into a ballroom at the North Georgia Convention Center in Dalton.

Many of them carried signs reading "Newt 2012" with hand written messages welcoming the former Georgia congressman home.

Gingrich told the crowd President Obama is his only opponent in the race. He says every vote moves him closer to the Republican National Convention in Tampa Florida this August.

"With your help, you can win on Tuesday..winning next Tuesday moves us towards Tampa in a big way, Georgia is the biggest group of delegates up on Super Tuesday so this is a big deal," Gingrich says.

So far the only state Gingrich has won in the primary is South Carolina.
