Gingrich, Romney at Peace

    FREDERICK, MD - APRIL 02:  Republican presidential candidate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) waits back stage to be introduced during a campaign town hall-style meeting at the Hodson Auditorium on the campus of Hood College, April 2, 2012 in Frederick, Maryland. Maryland will hold one of three primaries in the nation Tuesday. After acknowledging it is impossible for him to win the GOP presidential nomination outright, Gingrich has vowed to stay in the presidential race even after firing a third of his campaign staff last week, taking the fight to the party convention.

    Newt Gingrich said the attacks that have passed between him and Mitt Romney are just “part of the business” of running for president. “I hit him as hard as I could; he hit me as hard as he could,” Gingrich said. “Turns out he had more things to hit with than I did. That’s part of the business.” He added that the two share a common goal. “We are absolutely committed to defeating Barack Obama,” he said. “This is the most important election, in some ways, since 1860. Barack Obama’s a genuine radical.”
