Capping a week of dramatic changes in the race for the GOP nomination for POTUS, former Speaker Newt Gingrich has been declared the winner in the South Carolina primary, defeating the presumptive frontrunner, Mitt Romney.

       Despite a tawdry interview from his second ex-wife, Marianne, and defeats in Iowa and New Hampshire, Gingrich surged back with particular help from his debate performances. Twice in one week, Gingrich received standing ovations for his fiery answers.

        The road to the White House goes through Tampa next August, and it will be a long run getting there. Every GOP nominee since 1980 has been a SC winner…. will this time be different?
