Gingrich is looking for support in the upcoming Washington caucuses on March 3.

Gingrich is a distant third in the race to be the Republican nominee for President. The rise of former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum have left both he and congressman Ron Paul on the outside looking in. Romney, still the presumed front-runner, is in a close race with Santorum, with some polls showing Santorum has closed the gap with the former governor of Massachusetts.

At the debate last night in Arizona, Gongrich, Romney and Paul challenged Santorum's Senate record on spending, saying he supported earmarks, voted to raise the debt cieling and favored No Child Left Behind. Paul went as far as to call Santirum a "fake" conservative.

Gingrich, though admittedly behind in the race, hopes a strong showing in his home state of Georgia on March 6 can bring him back to the top of the polls.
