Pro-Gingrich superPAC will try to link Mitt Romney to Charlie Crist

A superPAC backing Newt Gingrich will attempt to liken Mitt Romney with another ambitious politician who endured criticism he would say anything to get elected: Charlie Crist.

From Huff Post:

In an interview with MSNBC Sunday morning, Rick Tyler, Gingrich's longtime spokesman who now helps head the super PAC, laid out a simple plan for the week ahead: tie Romney to Charlie Crist, the one-time beloved Florida governor who lost both his popularity and chances of serving in the Senate seat when he chose to be the moderate alternative to Tea Partier-turned-senator Marco Rubio.

"There's been a winnowing out of the conservative contenders," said Tyler. "I think Newt is now the only one left standing. So, if 75 percent of the party doesn't want Mitt and the Republican Party is acting like nominating Mitt is like getting a wildcat into a trash can, then I think the job is simple. We simply align Newt Gingrich with the 75 percent who don't want Mitt. I think here in Florida, all we have to do is remind people that Mitt Romney is Charlie Crist. If you voted for Charlie Crist, then you should vote for Mitt. If you didn't vote for Charlie Crist, then you should vote for Newt."

This is a two man race between Romney and Paul. Santorum and Gingrich are not on the ballot for 500 delegates worth of states. They are not, and will not be on the ballot in other states besides just Virginia. They have no grassroots support and virtually "zero" ground game. They cannot win the nomination.

Period.

All this MSM Propaganda pushing either Santorum or Gingrich is a joke. Anyway you work the numbers, they are out.
You have to ask yourself why the media isn't telling the American Public the truth. Do the math and see for yourself.

Crist was the one who cost Romney the nomination last election when he endorsed McCain three days before FL primary after he said he would remain neutral.......

Crist is a real puke......
