Gingrich Leads Off Thursday Nights Debate With Fiery Rebuke of Moderator
Huffington Post – CHARLESTON- Newt Gingrich, seeking to maintain his momentum, tapped back into the deep reservoir of resentment in American conservatism Thursday night by lecturing a debate moderator for the second time this week.
It was another explosive moment to cap the most eventful day of the Republican primary season. Iowa’s Republican party kicked off the day announcing that former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa) had won the Jan. 3 caucuses, instead of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Texas Gov. Rick Perry withdrew from the race and endorsed Gingrich. And then it emerged that Gingrich’s former wife, Marianne Gingrich, was accusing the former House speaker of asking her to take part in an “open marriage” to allow him to keep a mistress.
