"BUT HE'LL HAVE TO WIN SC TO GET TO GA"

OJ, I'm from TN, and I can tell you that Fred thinks he has the name recognition to stay in the race, just like Reagan did in '76, despite bad outcomes in the early states. All along, folks around here have thought that Fred picks up the chips after the front runners cut each other up.
