Super Tuesday wasn't a great day for any of the candidates, but it wasn't so bad that any of them will drop out. The next votes aren't as big -- Kansas's caucus is Saturday, while Alabama, Mississippi, and Hawaii vote March 13 -- but the three insurgent candidates need to win things in order to start looking like, you know, winners. Here's what Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Ron Paul are doing to convince you they can be the conservative alternative, and what Mitt Romney's doing to convince you it's too late for them.
No more media: Usually when Gingrich condemns the media, it's all a show, but not now, The New York Times' Trip Gabriel reports. "Mr. Gingrich was known for welcoming reporters’ questions almost daily, but no longer. He has been less available for this back and forth even as the size of the traveling press corps shrinks to a rump of embeds for the national television networks and a few online and print reporters."
No more Kansas: Gingrich has given up on Kansas. The day after the vote, his campaign cancelled appearances planned for Friday in Topeka and Wichita, the Topeka Capital-Journal's Andy Marso reports. Six stops total have been scrapped in favor of spending resources in the South.
