Want eggs with that? Both Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are planning to appear at a Tommy’s Country Ham House in Greenville on Saturday at exactly the same time: 10:45 in the morning on primary day, just hours before the voting begins. The two have been neck and neck going into the primary, with Gingrich pulling ahead at the last minute. A new Clemson poll shows that he now has a six-point lead over Romney. Though that’s within the statistical margin of error, the dynamic of the race appears to have shifted in Gingrich’s favor. The former speaker of the House had a strong debate showing earlier in the week, and Romney’s campaign now seems apprehensive.
