Romney Confirms Secret Meeting With Gingrich

Mitt Romney on Thursday confirmed that he did meet with Republican presidential rival Newt Gingrich on the eve of the Louisiana primary last week in New Orleans, but the former Massachusetts governor was cagey with the details.

“We’re pretty much in regular communication between the different campaigns and I said hello to Newt,” Romney said on Sean Hannity’s radio show. “Nothing new, nothing exciting except we keep a friendly discourse open.”

For what it’s worth, Gingrich spokesman RC Hammond told ABC News that while the former House Speaker’s meeting with Romney did occur, “Newt does speak Santorum and Romney on a regular basis.”
