CUMMING, Ga. — Newt Gingrich is criticizing negative ads run by rival Mitt Romney and an independent group supporting his candidacy, saying they have driven down voter turnout in the Republican presidential contest.
The former House speaker said attack ads run by Romney and the Restore Our Future super PAC had led to a "circular firing squad" among Republicans when the real target should be President Barack Obama.
Gingrich was campaigning Saturday in Georgia, one of 10 states holding voting contests on super Tuesday, March 6. Gingrich represented the state's 6th congressional district for 20 years and is banking on a win here to lift his candidacy.
Herman Cain, who dropped out of the GOP contest in December, was campaigning with Gingrich.
