Romney: L-word attack underscores Gingrich’s desperationby Jane Musgrave | January 29th, 2012
Mitt Romney scoffed at Newt Gingrich’s assertion that the former Massachusetts governor is a liberal.
“Speaker Gingrich has a history of attacking other Republicans and undermining conservatives,” said Ryan Williams, a Romney spokesman. “This dishonest attack is another example of Newt Gingrich trying to rewrite history to save his sinking campaign.”
Williams comments came hours after Gingrich used the ‘L’ word to describe Romney while speaking to a crowd at The Villages, a sprawling retirement community in Central Florida. Earlier in the day, speaking to reporters, Gingrich called his chief rival in Tuesday’s state GOP presidential primary a “Massachusetts moderate.”
