Newt Gingrich surged to victory Saturday in the South Carolina primary, riding a pair of strong debate performances to overtake Mitt Romney and stop his seemingly relentless march to the GOP nomination. Television networks called the race for the former House speaker almost immediately after the polls closed, a repeat of what happened 11 days ago in New Hampshire, but with a much different result. Former Massachusetts Gov. Romney appeared headed for second place, with former Sen. Rick Santorum  of Pennsylvania and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas trailing well behind.

Newt Gingrich's campaign says that a new policy to charge supporters $50 to take a photo with the GOP hopeful is really a way to showcase the grass-roots strength of his shoestring campaign. Reporters traveling with the former House speaker on Monday took note of the new paid photo policy , observing that he had long taken pictures with people attending his events for free. A campaign spokesman said Gingrich will continue to do so when he works the rope lines after he speaks.
