Pro-Gingrich SuperPac announces $6m FL ad buy tying Mitt Romney to ObamaCare

Flush with $5 million in new cash from the family of gambling czar Sheldon Adelson, the pro-Newt Gingrich SuperPac, Winning Our Future, has announced it's buying $6 million in air time in Florida. Quoting the Wall Street Journal and Forbes, it ties Romney to President Obama's health plan and features a clip of the president smiling as he credits Romney.

Winning Our Future wouldn't disclose where it's running the ads, but $6 million is a significant buy, suggesting that the spot will run on broadcast, cable and radio. In the compressed time-frame leading up to the Jan. 31 election, it's certainly enough to essentially put Gingrich even with the better-funded Romney campaign and the pro-Romney SuperPac.

Said FL Romney spokesman Ryan Williams: "Speaker Gingrich has demonstrated that he can’t tell the truth about his unprecedented ethics reprimand, his resignation in disgrace at the hands of his own party, and his work as a highly paid Washington lobbyist for Freddie Mac. It’s not a surprise that his allies can’t tell the truth either.”
