Gingrich assails Romney's political past
Breaking positive vow, Gingrich attacks Romney's claims to conservatism
By The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) ' Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich is breaking his vow to run a positive campaign. In what's essentially Mitt Romney's home turf of New Hampshire, Gingrich criticized the Republican front-runner for a checkered GOP past.

Gingrich says he's been a strong conservative.

He says Romney was once an independent and claims that Romney repudiated Reagan-Bush. Gingrich said Romney voted for Paul Tsongas (SAWN'-guhs), who Gingrich says was the most liberal candidate in the 1993 campaign.

Gingrich also says Romney "ran to the left of Teddy Kennedy" in a Senate race.

Gingrich argued that Romney became a moderate to run for governor in 2002. He also criticized Romney for signing a health care overhaul into law in Massachusetts.
