As Newt Gingrich takes the lead in S.C., Bachmann keeps up the furor

Image by Flickr user Gage Skidmore Gingrich is now polling at number one in S.C.

Ahead of the ever-import "first in the South", the race is tightening for South Carolina's January 21 GOP primary.

Most notably, between Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann — both of whom have campaigned heavily in the Palmetto State and the latter of which is trailing Gingrich (38% to 3%) and being more combative.

The Charleston City Paper has a nice profile on what the two have been up to locally; take a read here.

Mitt Romney is continuing his consistent second place at 13%.
