Rick Santorum Is Latest GOP Candidate to Go Gingrich on Romney


Rick Santorum Is Latest GOP Candidate to Go Gingrich on Romney. “Oh, look, I think what Newt just talked about with going after Governor Romney’s record in Massachusetts is absolutely dead-on,” Santorum said earlier this week on Fox’s On the Record. “Governor Romney’s record in Massachusetts is deplorable. It’s not a conservative record. It’s tax increases, as he mentioned, $50 a taxpayer-funded abortions in ‘RomneyCare.’ There are a whole host of fees and things that the governor put in place that, actually, he even proposed and a Democratic legislature wouldn’t go along with some of his tax increases. … that’s why I’ve been somewhat, you know, hesitant to go after his Bain Capital record. I don’t want to divert attention away from his horrible record as governor and being a moderate-to-liberal governor in Massachusetts.” [Fox]
