Goin Down South

GOP presidential hopefuls converge on South Carolina.

In the Republican race for the White House, it's on to South Carolina.

Mitt Romney believes a third win in a row is possible.

He's hoping social conservatives there will split their votes between Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum, much like they did in Iowa.

Newt Gingrich is already attacking Romney with a barrage of negative television ads.

"I think that he will grow weaker and weaker and very fast," Gingrich said Wednesday.

An anti-Romney movie, posted in full today on the web by Gingrich supporters, charges Romney's company fired workers to maximize profits.

Rick Perry's joining that attack as well.

"We need to have more venture capitalism going on in America and less vulture capitalism," he said.

Still, many believe that unless conservatives flock to a single Romney opponent in South Carolina, he'll emerge even stronger after the primary.
