When Newt Gingrich campaigns in coastal Georgia, it'll be an unusual stump for a presidential candidate. The state's largest metropolitan area, Atlanta, usually gets the appearances of would-be presidents, while the rest of the state watches from afar. But don't take it personally. It's all about money.
Secretary of State Brian Kemp says Georgia will hold its presidential primary on Super Tuesday. Kemp made the announcement Thursday that Georgians will go to the polls on March 6. State lawmakers gave Kemp until Dec. 1 to set Georgia's primary day. But the Republican National Party has asked states to submit their primary dates by Saturday.
