I'm Sam young and with Reuters. It's been an interesting week here in South Carolina as the races deep in her new face the uncertainty and excitement. That we did this back coming out of New Hampshire Mitt Romney thought to be the prohibitive front runner. Is in trouble here as his rivals have -- Newt Gingrich the former speaker of the house. Has been inundated with questions about his marital path but he still continues on the on the upward path toward challenging Romney for the nomination. If you help me win tomorrow. And I go on to become your nominee and I do believe if I win tomorrow who wanted them. Rick Santorum the former Pennsylvania senator is also playing hard here and turned -- one of his bitter debate performances of the cycle last night. On the debate stage last night in North Charleston not far from here. We saw Mitt Romney -- under fire yet again for not releasing his tax returns. When asked whether Romney would release many years of his returns Romney answered maybe giving fodder to his critics who say he waffles on big issues. It's going to be an interesting race here in the south. And next up Florida thanks so much for watching on the trail on Sam Young man with Reuters.
