“Newt Gingrich’s attacks on Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital are disgusting,” Club for Growth president Chris Chocola said Monday. “There are a number of issues for Mitt Romney’s Republican opponents to attack him for, but attacking him for making investments in companies to create a profit for his investors is just wrong.”
Gingrich may be in hotter water, however, for his super PAC’s video slamming Romney for his Bain years. As the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin and my old friend Quin Hillyer of the American Spectator wrote today, at Sunday’s Meet the Press debate, Gingrich seemed very familiar with that upcoming video and its contents and sources — perhaps excessively so. Candidates and their super PACs are not supposed to coordinate their activities. If Gingrich were not in touch with his super PAC, how did he know so many apparent details about this video?
I asked the Gingrich campaign by e-mail this afternoon. So far, my question remains unanswered.
