After being pummeled by Mitt Romney in Iowa, Newt Gingrich will hit back in New Hampshire.
The AP reported:
After weathering a full-on assault in Iowa, Newt Gingrich and his allies planned Tuesday to hit back hard at rival Mitt Romney as the Republican presidential campaign pushed east.
The first salvo was a full-page ad in the New Hampshire Union Leader that was to appear as Gingrich touched down in the state early Wednesday. It labels the former House speaker a “Bold Reagan Conservative” and Romney a “Timid Massachusetts Moderate.”
Campaigning in Iowa hours before the first-in the nation caucuses get under way Tuesday night, Gingrich said his campaign will put up television ads in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida – the next three states to vote – that aggressively contrast his record with Romney’s. And at least one pro-Gingrich super PAC was getting into the mix.
