Newt to Run Full Page New Hampshire Ad Against Moderate Mitt Romney
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.
