Gingrich Bachmann – Michele Bachmann visited Florida to take shots at Newt Gingrich.
The Tea Party supporter unexpectedly popped into South Florida on Thursday and started throwing haymakers at the Republican presidential front-runner.
Michele called Newt an “influence peddler” and said he has flip-flopped just like Romney. And voters wonâ€™t buy it, she said.
“They want to know whatâ€™s the truth,” she said at an appearance in Fort Lauderdale. “Theyâ€™re not interested in a chameleon.”
Just the day before, Gingrich took umbrage at Bachmannâ€™s criticism of his immigration plan and called her “factually challenged” – a comment that highlighted the Minnesota congresswomanâ€™s penchant for gaffes and misstatements.
The verbal tussles between the candidates is becoming more common as the Jan. 3 Iowa caucuses draw closer, followed by New Hampshire and South Carolina. Florida — the largest and most influential swing state — holds its primary Jan. 31. Amid the criticisms of each other, all the candidates say President Barack Obama has been a failure.
