Obama Has A New Ally Against Mitt Romney: Newt Gingrich

The bill would hit the floor of the Senate just as the general election is gearing up. While it has almost no chance of passing, the bill would put GOP legislators and Mitt Romney in an incredibly awkward position of having to either support SB 1070 and once-and-for-all no-take-backsies wave goodbye to the increasingly important Hispanic vote, or throw Arizona under the bus and reveal a seismic rift in their party…Read More

Will Obama’s Negative Campaign Against Mitt Romney’s Wealth Backfire?
