the republican nomination wide open. >> and in south carolina, it became clear if you wanted to beat barack obama, newt gingrich has the only person who has the background and experience and the ability to get on the stage and drive home authenticity. >> harris: now, mitt romney makes an announcement of his own. and fox reports on florida, the winner takes all. and the sports world mourning the death of a legendary football coach. remembering penn state's joe paterno. we begin tonight with a major decision from arizona congresswoman gabby giffords. a little more than year ago, pa gunman shot her and killed six others in tucson. giffords says she will leave congress. >> i don't remember much from that horrible day, but i will never forget the trust you
placed in me, to be your voi voice. thank you for your prayers and for giving me time to recover. i have more work to do on my recovery. so, to do what is best for arizona, i will step down this week. >> harris: giffords making that announcement in a heart rending video posted on her congressional website. in that message she thanks everyone for their support and encouragement and also promises she will return. [applaus [applause] >> you may remember last august, giffords returned to a house floor eruptening tears and applause, a standing ovation from her peers and colleagues, and she returned
to cast a vote and her appearance saying a lot about the case of her earlier recovery and earlier this month she returned to the horrific scene of the shooting in tucson to mark the one year anniversary. >> and praise tonight for her courage, determination and devotion to public service, president obama, in a statement released this evening said in part, gabby giffords embodies the very best what public service should be. she's universally admired and her qualitities transcends party or ideology and a willingness to listen to different ideas and a tireless commitment of work protecting our union and she will remain an inspiration to all whose lives she touched. mine included. and the speaker said, i absolute com giffords for the the courage and perservance in the face of tragedy and from nancy pelosi, congresswoman gabrielle giffords has been a
true bright star and a dynamic and creative public servant. in 2006. in the swing district near the mexican border, and a represented by both republicans and democrats in the past, a moderate democrat who protects border security and expanded health care and she'll submit letters of resignation to governor jan brewer and house speaker bainer, a primary must be held, 80 to 90 days after at that declared vacancy and the general election must then be held 50 to 60 days after that. and in the meantime, giffords comes back to congress tuesday, but only to attend the state of the union address in the house chamber where she served as a member just over five years, harris. >> an amazing recovery she has made. steve centanni, thank you very much. >> you, too, fox news of course is america's election headquarters and huge momentum for former house speaker newt
gingrich's campaign and he beat out former massachusetts governor mitt romney who until recently had been considered the front runner by a pretty wide marina. it was gingrich, 40 to 28% in the primary. some analysts calling it an amazing comeback. and the former house speaker a reading to the the showdown, florida, a little more than a week away on tuesday, january 31st. it's a winner take all for the 50 delegates. during a speech to reporters last night. gingrich said he is ready. >> we don't haved kind of money at least one of the candidates have. but we do have ideas and we do have people and we have proved here in south carolina, that people, people power, with the right ideas, beats big money and with your help, we're going to prove it again in florida. >> this is a significant win because historically, south carolina has sided with the eventually republican nominee
since 1980 and analysts saying the results signal a defeat for mitt romney, saying the race is not over yet. >> we still got a long way to go and a lot of work to do and tomorrow, we're going to move on to florida. (cheers) >> and of course, if the last month, really, since last summer has shown us anything, a lot can happen in the next nine days, campaign carl cameron live for us in tampa, florida, carl, the question for newt gingrich has to be, can a south carolina win pro fell him to victory? >> south carolina's record for picking the nominee to ultimately become the president or at least represent the party as the top pick is pretty much a perfect record. gingrich has history behind him and he needs to crans form
it into a campaign that can coalesce, and do it in the next ten days. there are two debates in the coming week that will give him lots of platform to do that and gingrich experienced debater. and attacking romney and the rhetoric, will accelerate into the next week as he tries to essentially go for a knockout punch, for romney not to win here will destroy his appearance of inevitability, something he hoped after south carolina, not to be out by gingrich. >> harris: what is next for romney. criticism for begin gich. he'll go after gingrich for house et cetera demands and 1.6 million for freddie mac,
and mr. romney will announce and release his personal income tax returns on tuesday, trying to get out of the way, what was a huge distraction that he says he actually handled fairly awkwardly and made it a big issue. with that said, it's time romney says to go after newt gingrich. >> i would like him to release his records. what was his work product there, what was he doing at freddie mac? because freddie mac figures in very prominently to the fact that people in florida have seen home values go down. >> and that's the other thing, there are a host of issues here in florida, particularly relate today the real estate market and just the business economy that will be both used against mitt romney and newt gingrich and this will be the showdown, neither one can afford to lose her, harris. >> last night we were following online, live chat on foxnews.com and some intensity of reporting for ron paul and rick santorum, a couple more people to talk about at this point.
>> ron paul's emphasis on florida, just as in south carolina will be finished. he probably won't here. the paul campaign is making a tactful tactical decision that can be easier to organize and play to his ability to go to his more oil ar dentsly supportive backers. and rick santorum coming in third place in south carolina, he believes gives him an opportunity to campaign forward. watch santorum go aggressively at gingrich and mitt romney. and saying gingrich is right, he's a massachusetts moderate and gingrich-oyes own merits and bills of particulars listed from the santorum campaign. it's going to get tough. everything we've heard will pale by comparison to the attacks and the debates next week. >> harris: it's hard to believe the fight against tougher from here. we're a step of the way along ka campaign carl cameron.

lung cancer we were told it was treatable form of the disease and his family was optimistic and this morning though, at 9:25, when a hospital announced it was lung cancer that claimed his life. his family then issued a statement, a portion of which said in part, and i quote, he died as he lived. he fought hard until the end. stay positive, thought only of others and constantly reminded everyone how blessed his life has been and he's now been eulogized by former president george h.w. bush and penn state school of trustees, the same board of trustees which fired him last november. but it's penn state students who seem most facted by his loss. >> he's the face of the university. everyone knows him, and everyone respects him and want to come out and pay my respect for pretty much made this university what it is. >> i think that everyone should remember the good's done for the university and
just remember him as the man that he was and not let any of this, that's been going on affect his remembrance. >> reporter: it seems that everyone wants to speak out publicly about joe paterno's death former penn state coach and now accused pedophile jerry sandusky issued a statement, it was a sad day and never addressing the scandal and the problems resulting on campus because of his alleged activities. later today, in just a short period of time, harris, a memorial vigil is going to take place here on pus, in memory of joe paterno. >> harris. >> david plea miller, thank you very much. some of you are now tuning in after the afc championship game, welcome. good to see you. >> one half of this super bowl matchup. the new england patriots returning to the big game after a dramatic finish in bronxo, 23-20, more on that a

key voter groups and late deciders 44% of those, among conservatives, among independents. he won among evangelicals and even won among married women. despite the scandals that erupted in the final 48 hours and second among moderates and that's a strong coalition to have before you going forward into the next contests and by winning south carolina, newt gingrich punctured mitt romney's era of inevitability. and now to test the viability as a candidate. here he is in face the nation. >> you end up with a guy who is a great salesman and very much wants to sell and has a weak product and i think's he about dancing on egg trying to find a version of romney that will work. >> and basically, what's going on right now, is newt gingrich has got mitt romney on the m mat and trying his best not to let him get up, harris.
>> harris: i've been regented from political analysts and observers, critical of mitt romney, saying he has quite an uphill climb to make. what strategy are you hearing about? >> oh, yeah, he sure does, he's in a pre curious position right now, harris, these primaries are about momentum and any momentum that mitt romney had, he has lost and needs to have a few moments, particularly, at that debate in tampa, tomorrow night. and basically, mitt romney finds himself, a man who needs to go on the attack and he needs to go on the attack and take it to newt gingrich has he did with chris wallace on fox news sunday. >> i think that conservative values played on the role and the speaker has explaining to do for sitting on the sofa with nancy pelosi and arguing for planet climate change and you're going to look at his record and say he's not so conservative. >> reporter: as they head off
into florida, a lot of sen tee ballots have been cost as he was up in the polls and likely a good percentage for romney and tand he's up by 18 points, but he was up at south carolina and had his lunch handed to him so these leads could evaporate quickly. >> and he has to go up against somebody that's organized and has a the lot of money still and that's ron paul. >> yeah, absolutely. but ron paul is not playing that much in florida. 's looking ahead to the caucus states like nevada and maine. i don't know how much of a factor ron paul is going to be in florida, but gingrich is the guy that romney has to go after and romney is very well-organized in florida and got an awful lot of money and gingrich doesn't have that much cash. an interesting nine days ahead

watch that's been issued out and including member fills. and it's not just any type of tornado watch, but a particularly dangerous situation and what that means is that the conditions are favorable not just twisters, but longer tracks and destructive, so we're looking at the risk for ef 4 and 5 twisters and wind gusts in excess of 80 miles per hour possible and hail as large as two inches in diameter and you can already see some of the thunderstorms forming just around the little rock area and those are headed eb eastbound. and as soon as i tap into those you can see the warnings, tornado warnings going up pine bluff area, when a warning is issued that means that there could be currently a tornado object the ground and seek shelter and one so the southwest of the town of pine bluff. there's a large area that we're looking at for the risk of severe weather from new orleans all the way into the city of chicago tonight, the greatest risk area is that area shaded in red and extending further up to the
