Gingrich Campaigning in Dayton, Columbus Today

Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is campaigning in Ohio in hopes of appealing to Republicans who will vote well ahead of the state's March 6 primary.

Gingrich says he suffered in Florida because Mitt Romney captured many early voters with TV ads that beat his rivals to the punch.

Ohio also allows early voting. The former House speaker says he does not want to repeat the mistake he made in Florida.

Republicans will vote Tuesday in caucuses in Colorado and Minnesota. But Gingrich plans to spend the day campaigning in Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus, Ohio.
