NEWPORT, N.H. â€” Mitt Romney, back atop the GOP field in the latest Rasmussen Reports poll in Iowa, kicked off his â€œEarn Itâ€ bus tour here on Wednesday with another jab at Republican rival Newt Gingrich, who has been sharply criticizing the former Massachusetts governorâ€™s â€œnegativeâ€ campaigning.
â€œThis is politics. If you canâ€™t stand the heat in this little kitchen, wait until the Obama hellâ€™s kitchen turns up the heat,â€ Mr. Romney said – first during an appearance on Fox News and then during a campaign stop in Keene.
Mr. Gingrich fired back, saying he can handle the heat and would be â€œhappyâ€ to â€œtest this kitchen.â€
â€œGo back and ask Gov. Romney, would he like to come and play in the kitchen? I donâ€™t think so. I donâ€™t think he wants to do anything except hide over here and pretend itâ€™s not his fault that he is flooding the people of Iowa with falsehoods,â€ Mr. Gingrich said, referring to ads being run by the Restore Our Future PAC, which is allowed to accept unlimited contributions and is run by former Romney aides.
The bus tour and spat between the top GOP contenders come just two weeks before the Iowa caucuses kick off the nomination contest on Jan. 3. They also coincide with polls that suggest that the anti-Gingrich ads – also coming out of the Rep. Ron Paul and Gov. Rick Perry camps – are taking a toll on the Georgia Republicanâ€™s White House bid.
