Mitt Romney may have New Hampshire in the bag, but a Newt Gingrich group is waiting for him in South Carolina with a $5 million ad attacking Romney as a predatory capitalist. Wealthy casino owner Sheldon Adelson gave the money to a Gingrich-supporting PAC for an ad composed partly of emotional interviews with people who lost jobs at companies Bain bought. Talking Points Memo calls the preview a “swift-boat-style” ad. Gingrich is getting help from other third parties as well, with Joseph McQuaid, the publisher of New Hampshire's Union Leader ripping into Romney in a front-age editorial, and Tea Party figure Carl Paladino telling Ron Paul to “get on the mother-ship” and urge voters to support Gingrich.
