Alabama GOP Chair: If Gingrich Loses the South, He's 'Out of the Ball Game'

Alabama Republican Party Chairman Bill Armistead said on Tuesday that out of all the GOP presidential candidates, Newt Gingrich has spent the most time campaigning in the state -- and that he has the most at stake as voters head to the polls.

Gingrich needs Southern support the most, Armistead said, arguing that if the former House speaker doesn't do well in Alabama and Mississippi he will no longer be competitive.

“You would think he was running for governor here,” Armistead said on CNN's Early Start, adding that if Gingrich loses both Southern states, “I believe he’s out of the ball game and then it will be a one-to-one between Santorum and Romney.”
