A well-funded group backing Mitt Romney accidentally posted a campaign ad that harshly attacks Newt Gingrich.
The ad said Democrats are hoping for Gingrich as the nominee because all of his “baggage,” including ethics violations while he was Speaker of the House and earlier support of climate change legislation, “amnesty” for undocumented immigrants, and a requirement that everyone buys health insurance.
The group, Restore Our Future, announced a $3.1 million ad buy in Iowa earlier in the day, and released an ad praising Romney’s record in the private sector and slamming President Obama.
The anti-Gingrich ad was put on YouTube on Thursday night but was quickly taken down. Brittany Gross, a spokesperson for the group, said that “it’s an unfinished ad” and that the group would not comment further on it at this time.
Mitt doesn’t have the balls to do it himself.
“But screw your courage to the sticking place . . .”
