Gingrich: Romney's Inability to Control Super PAC 'Makes You Wonder How Much Influence He’d Have If He Were President'

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said at Monday's debate in South Carolina that Mitt Romney's inability to control what a Super PAC supporting him says "makes you wonder how much influence he’d have if he were President” (video follows with transcribed highlights):


Moderator Gerald Seib of the Wall Street Journal asked the former Speaker of the House about an ad being run in South Carolina created by a Super PAC supporting Mitt Romney.

Gingrich responded, “This is typical of what both Senator Santorum and I have complained about with Governor Romney’s Super PAC over which he apparently has no influence - which makes you wonder how much influence he’d have if he were President.”
