Newt Gingrich tore into Mitt Romney on Sunday, calling his attacks in debates and on the campaign trial “breathtakingly dishonest” and saying he expects the primary to go on for months beyond Florida’s vote on Tuesday.
"This is going on all the way to the convention,” Gingrich said on ABC’s This Week.
Gingrich went on to accuse Romney of making untrue statements in his advertisements, in his campaign rhetoric and on the debate stage, where the candidates have now met 19 times.
“I don’t know how you debate a person with civility if they're prepared to say things that are just plain factually false,” Gingrich said.
Gingrich also launched some attacks of his own against Romney, labeling Romney a “Massachusetts liberal” and saying that he is trying to hide his record. “You have a governor of Massachusetts who was pro-abortion, he was pro-tax increase, he was pro-gun control,” Gingrich said. “He can’t even remember his own voting record.”
