Newt Gingrich: Mitt Romney Not a ‘Convincing’ Frontrunner

Political News

Nicholas KammAFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich slammed Mitt Romney on Sunday morning, calling him a “not a very convincing frontrunner” on This Week.

“He is a long way from having closed out this race,” Gingrich said, brushing off Romney’s five recent Republican contest wins ahead of Super Tuesday.

Gingrich also went after his other rival Rick Santorum, saying he was “historically a labor union senator” from Pennsylvania. In his interview on Sunday, Gingrich also predicted he would win his home state of Georgia on Super Tuesday by a “bigger margin” than Romney won Michigan. He also said he would win Alabama and Mississippi.

“Big ideas matter. Twice in this process I have been the frontrunner in national polling,” Gingrich said. “I think we have a chance to get back.”
