Georgia Republicans have three weeks to decide who they will vote for in the March 6 presidential primary, and none of the four candidates has announced plans to stop in Augusta before Super Tuesday.

“I’m not aware of any plans yet to stop in Augusta,” said Richmond County Republican Party Chairman Bob Finnegan on Wednesday.

Finnegan said campaigns plan on a day-to-day basis at this point in the race, so there’s still a chance Augustans might get to see the candidates.

“They’d be crazy not to stop by,” he said. “I’m just not aware of any right now.”

A spokeswoman on former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum’s campaign said she did not know of any events in Augusta, but that the calendar on his Web site stays updated. The calendar only shows events a few days in advance at the most.

Calls placed to campaign offices for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Congressman Ron Paul were not immediately returned.
