One major issue that might have slowed Newt Gingrich’s momentum in South Carolina – his history of marital infidelities, most recently highlighted in interviews with his second wife – appears not to be doing so.
In the Republican debate Thursday night, the former House speaker won two standing ovations during one exchange alone. Three of four polls out Thursday showed Newt Gingrich slightly ahead of Mitt Romney for the lead in South Carolina.
Republican debate getting spicy: South Carolina held the latest Republican debate and the candidates didn't hold their punches. While Romney says the candidates should focus on Obama, he and the others took more jabs than usual at each other in this debate.
