Newt Gingrich has released a new Florida campaign ad that lambasts rival Mitt Romney’s character, furthering the Speaker’s contention that Romney can’t be trusted, reports The Hill
“If a man’s dishonest to get a job, he’ll be dishonest on the job,” former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says in the opening clip of the ad, taken from a previous attack ad that aired in 2008.
Gingrich’s camp has released the entirety of the ad’s script, although it has yet to be posted online.
See video below.
“What kind of man would mislead, distort, and deceive just to win an election? This man would be Mitt Romney,” the ad claims.
“Romney said he has always voted Republican when he had the opportunity. But in the 1992 presidential primary Romney had the chance to vote for George H.W. Bush or Pat Buchanan, but he voted for a liberal Democrat instead,” the narrator charges.
The ad takes Romney to task over his assertion that he had no knowledge of stocks he owned in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and his fallacious claim that his campaign was not responsible for a Gingrich attack ad.
“Romney said his investments in Fannie and Freddie were in a blind trust. But as reported in the National Journal, Romney earned tens of thousands of dollars from investments not in a blind trust.
“Romney denied seeing a false ad his campaign used to attack Newt Gingrich. But Romney’s own campaign paid for the ad . . . Romney’s own voice is on the ad approving the content. If we can’t trust Romney in a debate, how can we trust him in the White House?”
