Gingrich wins South Carolina

Newt Gingrich overcame a last minute attack on him to win the South Carolina primary:

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich stormed to an upset victory in the South Carolina primary Saturday night, dealing a sharp setback to former front-runner Mitt Romney and suddenly scrambling the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

“Thank you, South Carolina!” a jubilant Gingrich tweeted to his supporters. He appealed for a flood of donations for the next-up Jan. 31primary. “Help me deliver the knockout punch in Florida. Join our Moneybomb and donate now,” said his tweet.

Exit polls showed he led among voters who said their top priority was picking a candidate who could beat President Barack Obama — a group that had preferred Romney in earlier contests in Iowa and New Hampshire.

What probably got him over the line was this stunning on the media in a live debate where the CNN host, John King, opened the debate with questions over Newt’s long term affairs. He absolutely smashed up the host, the media and attacked Obama as well…to loud applause.

In the US they take a dimmer view of people who cheat on their taxes than those who cheat on their wives.
