Although there’s already been some infighting among the ranks of this election cycle’s Republican presidential hopefuls, it’s going to get only crazier from here on out. And with candidates’ fates shifting as quickly as they have this time around (Herman who?), you can bet that rival GOP camps are going to do their darndest to stir up the drama.
On Tuesday, it was Gingrich v. Romney as Team Newt prepared to strike back against the former Massachusetts governor for damages done to Gingrich’s chances in Iowa. How many more months of this do we have again? —KA

After weathering a full-on assault in Iowa, Newt Gingrich and his allies planned Tuesday to hit back hard at rival Mitt Romney as the Republican presidential campaign pushed east.
The first salvo was a full-page ad in the New Hampshire Union Leader that was to appear as Gingrich touched down in the state early Wednesday. It labels the former House speaker a “Bold Reagan Conservative” and Romney a “Timid Massachusetts Moderate.”
Campaigning in Iowa hours before the first-in the nation caucuses get under way Tuesday night, Gingrich said his campaign will put up ads in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida — the next three states to vote — that aggressively contrast his record with Romney’s. And at least one pro-Gingrich super PAC was getting into the mix.
