Former McCain adviser warns Romney on Gingrich attacks
John Weaver, a former adviser to John McCain, warned yesterday that Mitt Romney may have gone too far with his Florida primary attacks on Newt Gingrich. The short-term primary pleasure, Weaver argued, complicates the long-term general election goal. In days past, a candidate could only campaign as long as his contributions flowed. But the support now from super PACs allows candidates to continue campaigning so long as they retain the support of just a few wealthy donors.
