6:02 p.m. Central WASHINGTON (AP) — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has picked up at least 23 delegates for winning the Georgia Republican presidential primary, getting an early boost in the race for Super Tuesday delegates.

Georgia has a total of 76 delegates at stake, and Gingrich is likely to pick even more as the votes are tallied. A total of 419 delegates were up for grabs in 10 states Tuesday.

In the overall race for delegates, former Massachusetts Gov.

It takes 1,144 delegates to win the Republican nomination for president.
