The man who orchestrated the Republican wave that took out Spokane’s own Speaker of the U.S. House nearly two decades ago was back Thursday, this time with a bid for the White House. Newt Gingrich finds himself trailing in polls, well behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and the surging campaign of former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. But he said Washington could help put his campaign back in the running. He said Washington, which holds its GOP caucuses on March 3, can make a “big difference” in the race as the final contest before Super Tuesday, when 10 states, including Idaho, hold primaries or causes/Spokesman-Review.

Question: Will Super Tuesday be Newt Gingrich's last hurrah?
