New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has come out and said that Newt Gingrich has been an "an embarrassment to the party."
Bad line. It doesn’t help the Romney campaign at all. The Tea Party and many on-fire conservatives could care less about “the party” (GOP).
Stay in the know. Get The Brody File Weekly:
The reason Gingrich is resonating (in part) is because he is moving away from the establishment party hierarchy. Romney touts the GOP establishment hierarchy at every turn, from conference calls to endorsements.
The Gingrich campaign is forming the narrative that Newt is a man of the people, even though he’s been around Washington forever. Romney hasn’t spent anytime in Washington and yet looks like the establishment backed candidate.
Go figure. What a topsy-turvy 2012 campaign.
