Report: Pro-Romney Super PAC Creates Anti-Gingrich Ad

A pro-Mitt Romney super PAC has created an ad attacking Newt Gingrich on his decades-long political career, his ethics violations, and his ties to Freddie Mac as well as accusing him of supporting liberal causes, the Center for Public Integrity’s iWatch News reported.

The super PAC, Restore Our Future, funded the ad, which appeared online but was reportedly pulled later. The ad, which is included in the iWatch News report, directs viewers to NewtFacts.com -- but as of Friday morning, the site was password protected.

The ad opens with a picture of a grinning President Obama. “Why is this man smiling?” the narrator asks. “Because his plan is working. Brutally attack Mitt Romney and hope Newt Gingrich is his opponent. Why? Newt has a ton of baggage.”

 

Former House Speaker Gingrich has overtaken Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, as the front-runner in the race for the Republican nomination for president. The ad will have little impact on the contest unless the PAC decides to air it on television in Iowa, which it could still do. The Iowa caucuses are on Jan. 3.
