Newt Gingrich Cancels Kansas Campaign Stops

After wining only one state on Super Tuesday, Newt Gingrich is refocusing his campaign efforts, and they don't include Kansas.

According to Politico, the former House speaker canceled two days' worth of planned campaign stops in the Sunflower State ahead of its caucuses Saturday.

Mitt Romney is also skipping Kansas. According to the Dodge Globe, only Ron Paul and Rick Santorum will visit the state.

The former Pennsylvania senator made it clear during a campaign stop Wednesday in Lenexa, Kan., that he is setting high expectations for Saturday.

"We have to do well in Kansas -- no, we have to WIN in Kansas, and win big," Santorum said, according to a tweet from MSNBC's Mike O'Brien.

In 2008, Mike Huckabee won Kansas and Mitt Romney came in a distant fourth.
