Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich slammed what he called a barrage of negative ads aimed at him and promised a 44-stop “jobs and prosperity” tour before the voting on Jan. 3 to fight back.
Gingrich, according to The New York Times
, is promising campaign positively, but he still blasted unnamed Republican rivals for ads that have relentlessly gone after his record on Freddie Mac and other issues and seem to be raising doubts with voters.
“I’m candidly very disappointed that some of my friends who are running put out so much negative junk,” he said here Monday afternoon.
“The only person who profits when Republican ads attack other Republicans is Barack Obama,” he said, “and I think that’s pretty reprehensible behavior on the part of some of the candidates.”
Gingrich said he will return “again and again” to tell voters what he stands for, as well as to “answer any question that comes up based on the false and inaccurate advertising from some of my friends.”
