Albums and we had a big day for you folks you've got ten states in play.
There's more than 400 delegates that are out there up for grabs right now several of those are in swing states including Ohio in the -- tonight so this is arguably.
-- most pivotal 24 hour period in this whole race it has all come down.
To this day folks so all of those candidates are out there shaken hands hoping they can get one more vote here in there to put him over the top.
Sure oh and -- -- that let people of Ohio.
You all know this is the biggest prize on Super Tuesday I think this is the most important election.
In our lifetime.
I think you re elected Barack Obama would be a disaster on such a scale so for.
Our candidates ten different states and this is what you can look out throughout throughout the day here on a poll closing map here.
When a key in on three -- you just under ten hours away from polls closing and the state of Georgia 76 delegates there.
Newt Gingrich -- he's gonna have a good -- he has to win his home state even he has admitted that in the past at 73010.
And a half hours from now.
This is what you just heard there on that little clip there this is Ohio.
It is so important right now in this race not only the primary season but also.
Come general election we'll come back to an Ohio here in a moment but also at 8 o'clock now.
Are -- gonna get -- also Tennessean in Tennessee right now.
The polling between -- Norman Romney which had so much favored Rick sandstorm only ten days ago.
Has really tightened up and -- neck and neck and even Newt Gingrich for his -- -- talking about cutting into that Tennessee -- come back to a higher here now.
-- and in the state of Ohio Rick Santorum is now gone out to.
Of the town of stoop and -- -- here at Jefferson County.
And in Jefferson County Steve Brown is standing by live this is -- on the West Virginia border right near his home state of Pennsylvania and Steve Brown is that -- polling station now what's that like tells the traffic -- good morning.
Good morning yes we're told that traffic is a little bit on the light side turnouts expected be similar in the range of 45 to 30%.
In this state and particularly up in the north east portion of Ohio.
Which is of high importance to Rick -- in -- Campaigning yesterday in Ohio spent his day campaigning across the state.
Ending it here in northeast Ohio we should be an area that favors him it is a blue collar section of the state.
It orders his home state of Pennsylvania.
Across the river from where he grew up.
And last night he urged people to get out and get their vote cast today have a -- We have been hammered here on the in the -- twelve million dollars.
Twelve million dollars the last few weeks.
Twelve no one is the ratio that we've been outspent it's really remarkable.
And yet for five polls out today average the five polls dead even.
Here in the state of it's gut check time.
Who wants it.
The most what do you say.
Certainly Santorum has run a more efficient campaign in terms of dollars spent -- votes collected but it's not about efficiency it's about the end result.
In this one is look like it's going down the wire fell he has a challenge of sand storm when it comes a gathering delegates votes are important delegates ultimately matter.
What's his challenge in all honesty.
Is it's all about delegates and is challenges is that unfortunately because his campaign.
Didn't organize here quite well enough here in the northeast section of the state there -- three and our congressional district.
In which he will not be competing for the delegates you'll show up on the at large portion of the ballot for at large here in the state of Ohio but not for the district -- Which means while he's competing for 57 delegates statewide Mitt -- is competing for the full slate 66 which means he could win.
A popular vote victory and walk away with fewer delegates -- the real serious possibility.
So -- Steve thank you Steve Brown eastern Ohio there -- on the West Virginia border thank you sir are.
