Ten states are holding Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses to pick 419 delegates out of the 1,144 needed to clinch the Republican presidential nomination.

Here are delegate counts as of 5:55 a.m. ET on Wednesday, as tabulated by The Associated Press:

—Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, 415 delegates.
—Former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, 176 delegates.
—Former House speaker Newt Gingrich, 105 delegates.
—Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, 47 delegates.

All told, the Super Tuesday states will send 437 delegates to the national convention beginning on Aug. 27 in Tampa, Fla. Some of them are superdelegates with automatic slots, who are not in play in Tuesday’s elections. The AP count includes superdelegates who have already made their choices.

"In a new ad set to begin running in Iowa on Tuesday, Perry says, “Washington is the capital of political correctness, where doublespeak reigns and the truth is frowned upon."

…The ad is the latest in a series of spots that Perry’s campaign has run as part of a $1 million ad campaign to reach caucus-goers. Recent ads have focused on Perry’s religious beliefs and attacked gay rights, themes aimed at the evangelical voters who typically dominate the caucus. One ad, which questioned why gay men and women are allowed to serve openly in the military, led to protests at a Perry campaign event on Sunday.”
