Mitt Romney’s campaign used a conference call this morning with social conservatives in Florida to hit Newt Gingrich on his personal life. Pastor David Janney of Orlando Baptist Church, former U.S. Rep. Dave Weldon and Jay Sekulow of the conservative American Center for Law and Justice participated in the call.
“When I look at his life I’m not concerned about being embarrassed or distracted by his personal issues.” Janney said, contrasting Romney’s 42-year marriage with Gingrich’s failed marriages.
Yesterday, Newt Gingrich used a conference call with Christian pastors from around the state and nation to criticize Romney’s record on abortion and what he considers a “secular assault on religion.” Gingrich told the pastors that Romney’s record “was pro abortion” and that as Massachusetts governor he “had appointed pro-abortion judges.”
