Gingrich has campaigned the most in Alabama, Mississippi

As the Republican nominating contest moves south on Tuesday, voters in Alabama and Mississippi have seen more of Newt Gingrich than the other GOP presidential candidates.

Gingrich has spent a combined 10 days in both states -- six in Alabama and four in Mississippi.

By comparison, Rick Santorum has spent three days in each of those states, while Mitt Romney has spent two days in each. Ron Paul has not visited either state. And no candidate has campaigned in Hawaii, which also holds its contest on Tuesday.

But the candidates’ children have made it to the Aloha State. Elizabeth Santorum and Matt Romney spent the weekend in Hawaii -- with Matt appearing at a shopping center there on Sunday, and Elizabeth holding a half-dozen events Sunday and today.

Here’s a breakdown of candidate travel so far in this election cycle:
