Republicans Get No Love From Home States

There is a pretty good chance that not one of the Republican presidential candidates will win his home state's primary, The Washington Post points out. Newt Gingrich has already acknowledged that a win in his native Georgia will be tough, and Mitt Romney is barely leading in Michigan, where he was born and raised by his father, a former Michigan governor. Gingrich and Santorum both currently live in Virginia, but neither will win there because they've been excluded from the ballot. Santorum is currently tied in Pennsylvania, the state he represented as a senator, and Ron Paul is trailing way behind in Texas.
