GOP Race Heats Up

Thursday, January 12, 2012 - 10:22am

The G.O.P. race marches on to South Carolina, and the rhetoric heats up.

While Mitt Romney is hoping for a third-round win in South Carolina, his underdog opponents are hoping for a knockout.

The Republican frontrunner is being hammered over the airwaves, online in a documentary, and on the stump where Newt Gingrich is turning up the heat - and not apologizing. "I think that the American people deserve to know things," said Newt Gingrich, (R) Presidential Candidate.

Rick Perry is trying to shoot down Romney's credentials as a job creator. "We need to have more venture capitalism going on in America - and less vulture capitalism," said Rick Perry, (R) Presidential Candidate.

After winning Iowa and New Hampshire, Romney can afford to shrug off the attacks. "It was said a long, long ago, politics ain't bean bags," said Mitt Romney, (R) Presidential Candidate.

Ron Paul is avoiding the attacks altogether, but they're not sitting well with some other Republicans including opponent Rick Santorum. "It is bad enough for Barack Obama to blame folks in business for causing problems in this country. It's one other thing for Republicans to join in on that," said Rick Santorum, (R) Presidential Candidate.

Nine days left until South Carolina ... And the G.O.P. Presidential campaign is heating up.
