Gingrich: Romney 'carpet bombing' rival with ads

Newt Gingrich says Republican presidential rival Mitt Romney “has a basic policy of carpet bombing his opponent” and that the “old establishment” in the party is trying to block Gingrich's path to nomination.

Gingrich tells “Fox News Sunday” that Romney has done little to bolster his own campaign and instead has focused on attacking his competitors. The former House speaker says conservatives should rally behind one candidate and punish Romney's negativity.

Gingrich and Romney are in a fierce contest in Florida, which has its primary on Tuesday.

Gingrich is campaigning as the most viable conservative and casts Romney as a “Massachusetts moderate.”

Gingrich is being far outspent, including one ad that highlights his resignation from Congress amid ethics allegations. Gingrich says Romney is “running an ad that is factually false.”
