Gingrich whips out ‘L’ word to describe Romneyby Jane Musgrave | January 29th, 2012
THE VILLAGES – Mitt Romney is no long a mere moderate, according to Newt Gingrich. He’s a full blown liberal.
Campaigning in front of as many as 3,000 retirees under the blazing Florida sun, Gingrich blasted his chief GOP presidential rival for claiming he wasn’t a good friend and close policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan.
To show how wrong the former Massachusetts governor is about his relationship with the Republican icon, Gingrich said the late president’s son, Michael, will be campaigning with him Monday when he crisscrosses the state on one last attempt to woo voters before Tuesday’s primary.
“Michael will be here tomorrow to prove to every doubting person that I am the legitimate heir of the Reagan movement not some liberal from Massachusetts,” he said.
