Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Newt Gingrich was asked about his decline in the polls in Florida, where he had briefly led earlier last week after his big win in South Carolina.
“Look, Governor Romney has the ability to raise an amazing amount of money out of Wall Street, from Goldman Sachs to all the major banks,” said Gingrich. “And he has a policy of carpet-bombing his opponents. He doesn’t build up Mitt Romney, he tears down the people he’s running against. And it has an effect.
Gingrich also bemoaned that Rick Santorum was splitting the conservative vote: “Down here one of our challenges is the two major conservative candidates between us clearly beat Mitt Romney, and I think that’s a challenge.”
