Newt Gingrich Predicted to Win Mississippi and Alabama Primaries

Birmingham City - US Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum won the Mississippi primary, taking both Deep South states up for grabs on Tuesday, networks projected.

With 96 percent of the votes counted, Santorum led with 33 percent of the vote in Mississippi. Newt Gingrich was second with 31 percent, followed closely by Mitt Romney at 30 percent.

Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, earlier won the Republican primary in Alabama with 35 percent of the vote. Gingrich had 30 percent and Romney 28 percent.

He will as well win the primary in Alabama according to the NBC network projected.

With 29 percent of the votes counted, Santorum was leading with 35 percent of the vote. Newt Gingrich was second with 30 percent, followed by Mitt Romney at 28 percent.

Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, also maintained a narrow lead in the other primary of the night in Mississippi, but the race there remained too close to call.
