Fox News is calling Georgia for Newt Gingrich, the first win of the night. His won among Tea Party voters, and voters describing themselves as conservative and evangelical. Voters who said that the right experience matters most also polled strongly for Gingrich. The only category he wasn't favored in was strong moral character, with those voters leaning towards Rick Santorum.

This was an important win for Newt. Not only does Georgia have a lot of delegates (76), but if he had not won, he would have been out, by his own admission.

More to come...
