Today is Super Tuesday and voters in 10 states will attempt to solidify the Republican presidential race.

STORY: Rising Champion!!? Mitt Romney Takes Washington Caucuses

However, it looks like it’s going to be a close two man race between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum as Newt Gingrich just hopes to keep his struggling campaign alive with a strong showing in Georgia.

According to the Associated Press, voters who turned out early Tuesday at one polling place in suburban Cincinnati made clear that all the candidates still have some convincing to do. Polling officials in Anderson Township said many people were asking for issues-only ballots and skipping the presidential voting altogether.

With 419 delegates at stake around the country, Tuesday’s voting represents a sizable slice of the 1,144 needed to nail down the GOP nomination.

Romney has been on a winning run as of late in close contest in Michigan, winning four consecutive contests, including Saturday’s Washington caucuses.

The GOP front-runner, trying to keep his focus on President Barack Obama, was using a speech Tuesday before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee to argue he’d be more effective at containing Iran’s nuclear ambitions. In prepared remarks, Romney said the Obama administration’s “naive outreach to Iran gave the ayatollahs exactly what they wanted.”

After falling behind Santorum in Ohio last month, Romney has closed the gap in recent days, with polls showing the race a dead heat on the eve of the primary.

Romney said of his opponents while campaigning in Ohio: 

“Other people in this race have debated about the economy; they’ve read about the economy, they’ve talked about it in subcommittee hearings. But I’ve actually been in it. I’ve worked in business and I understand what it takes to get a business successful and to thrive.”

However, Super Tuesday isn’t the end all and be all, it just gives a clearer picture of who can be the Republican Presidential candidate. The race is expected to continue further into March.
