Romney Camp: Gingrich, Perry Comments Are ‘Attack on Free Enterprise’
With both Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry hitting hard on Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital record today, the Romney campaign is responding with a blistering statement.
“It is no surprise that, having spent nearly half a century in government between them, Speaker Gingrich and Governor Perry have resorted to desperate attacks on a subject they don’t understand,” said Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul in a statement. “We expect attacks on free enterprise from President Obama and his allies on the left – not from so-called ‘fiscal conservatives.’ Speaker Gingrich and Governor Perry seem to think that running against the private sector is the way to revive their floundering campaigns. Governor Romney will continue talking about his experience in the real economy, his vision for getting America back to work, and how important it is that we defeat President Obama in November.”
