With support for Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich seemingly growing by the day, Mitt Romney is starting to go after his top opponent in earnest, USA Today reports. The latest polls show Gingrich with a substantial lead in the Iowa caucuses, which take place Jan. 3.

Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, USA Today"We're making our closing argument," the former Massachusetts governor told reporters as he campaigned in Arizona Tuesday. "You'll see me campaigning aggressively." Speaking to Fox News Tuesday, the former Massachusetts governor said, "I will not be quiet. I am going to make sure my message is heard loud and clear. [Former House] Speaker Gingrich is a friend . . . I respect him, but we have very different life experiences."

Romney likes to play up his own experience in the private sector — he co-founded private equity firm Bain Capital — while scoffing at Gingrich as a career politician.

Gingrich, meanwhile, says Romney owes him some gratitude. Romney, who is said to be worth $190 million to $250 million, "should be thanking me because I did the macroeconomic things to make his career possible," Gingrich said on CNBC Tuesday.

Romney has agreed to a Sunday morning talk-show interview with Fox News on Dec. 18, after refraining from such appearances since March 2010. Romney said, "You’re going to see me on a lot more shows."
