Newt Gingrich campaigns in Cleveland

Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich campaigned in Cleveland Wednesday morning.

He talked to employees of Jergens, Inc., and also toured the facility during his campaign stop that was closed to the public.

This is Gingrich's second straight day campaigning in Ohio, where early voting is already underway.

Mitt Romney is expected to be in Ohio next week, as the battle for the Republican presidential nomination heats up.

Candidate Rick Santorum, meantime, is trying to capitalize on his recent string of victories. Tuesday night, the former Pennsylvania Senator dealt frontrunner Romney a major blow, winning three presidential contests.
