Gingrich super-PAC spokesman says Santorum could have won 'if he could speak English'

Tyler said Santorum's failure to capitalize provided Gingrich a chance for another comeback in what has been a tumultuous GOP primary. Tyler's remarks were first reported by the National Journal.

Santorum had been riding high after a trio of wins in Missouri, Minnesota and Colorado. But a series of controversial statements — calling President Obama a "snob" for encouraging Americans seek higher education, a series of remarks concerning contraception, a statement about the president's "phony theology" — coupled with a poor debate performance ultimately derailed Santorum's efforts in Michigan.

Gingrich is hoping that a win in Georgia, which has the most delegates up for grabs in next Tuesday's voting, can propel him back into the lead as the conservative alternative to Romney.
