Republican Presidential Candidates Prepare for Super Tuesday

The four remaining candidates vying for the Republican presidential nomination are doing all they can to sway voters before Super Tuesday.

One third of the delegates needed to clinch the nomination is up for grabs tomorrow.

Mitt Romney fired up supporters in Canton, Ohio.

He took the stage to make the case why they should get out and vote for him on Super Tuesday.

"If you think this campaign against President Obama is going to be about the economy, jobs, and government being too big, then I 'm the guy you need to nominate," said Mitt Romney.

Romney will spend the entire day campaigning in Ohio and so will Rick Santorum.

Polls show the two neck and neck here heading into Super Tuesday's most critical contest.

"I come to the people of Ohio as a candidate who shouldn’t be here. Shouldn’t be here if you looked at any political expert and you looked at the money that’s been spent," said Rick Santorum.

Santorum will watch the returns in Steubenville but if he wins here he won't capture the area's delegates.

His campaign failed to submit the required paperwork in some Ohio districts.

Jim Emmerling will still support Santorum he's a small business owner in Steubenville.

"He stands for a lot of causes I believe in and he's from Pennsylvania which is across the river," said Jim Emmerling.

Newt Gingrich is making his push in Super Tuesday's southern states, Georgia and Tennessee.

"We're not just against Obama, we're for a dramatically better America - an America you cannot achieve with his left-wing values," said Newt Gingrich.

Ron Paul campaigned in Idaho looking for his first win in caucuses there.

Three new polls out today surveying Ohio voters are split.

Two show Romney up, one has Santorum hanging on to the lead.
