Romney and Gingrich stage final bitter blitz in Florida
Maeve Reston and Seema Mehta
Starting at dawn and pushing deep into the night, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich stormed Florida on Monday in a final blitz of sharply negative campaigning, trading accusations on the eve of the state's crucial Republican presidential primary.
Romney, who appears headed for victory, reprised attacks on Gingrich's ethics and lucrative consulting work for the mortgage giant Freddie Mac.
Asked about Gingrich's assertion he planned to campaign win or lose up to the August GOP convention in Tampa, Romney scoffed. "That's usually an indication that you think you're going to lose," he told reporters as he flew from Jacksonville to St. Petersburg.
