GOP Candidates Campaign For Super Tuesday

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 05:13 PM CDT
The republican candidates for president will fan out across the country for their last full day of campaigning before Super Tuesday.

Ten states and more than 400 delegates are up for grabs. 

Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney and his wife Ann received a warm ovation. Supporter Governor Bill Haslam introduced the couple to a crowd of nearly 1,000 people at West Hills Elementary.

Just minutes before Governor Romney took the stage, CBS’s Lorena Estrada sat down with him. She talked with Governor Romney about his plans to move the country in a different direction.

"I spent my life in the private sector. I want to use that skill to get America back on track,” said Romney.

"I believe they want someone to go to Washington to take it apart, and put it back together simple, government that balances its budget and government to get out of the way so job creators can put people back to work with rising incomes. I know how to do that."

Before he can do that, he needs to win over Tennesseans.
"I want them to come to me, and to get the support I need to become the nominee and to replace Barack Obama- we've got to get him out of office."

But if it came down to it, could he beat President Barrack Obama? His wife thinks so.

"There's one thing I know this guy next to me is going to be the nominee of the part and next thing I know he is going to beat Barrack Obama,” said Ann Romney.

Governor Romney says it won’t be easy. His supporters also think he has a good shot.
"I've been impressed with Gov Romney since the first time I met him, 4 years ago. He's a good kind and decent man. He’s more conservative than people give him credit for," said a supporter.

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum will focus on Ohio. It is one of t he biggest prizes tomorrow. Newt Gingrich is campaigning heavily in the south and will be in Tennessee. Ron Paul will head to Idaho.GOP Candidates Campaign For Super Tuesday
