CONCORD, USA – In two days of the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, Mitt Romney was again the target of attacks by the other five contenders for the Republican nomination during a televised debate on Sunday morning. The night before in a similar confrontation, the winner of the Iowa caucuses had managed to sweep the criticism from his rivals to focus its attacks on Barack Obama.
The former chairman of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich has accused Mitt Romney of saying “nonsense”, claiming not to be a career politician. The latter rejected the accusations by saying that his passion was his “family, his faith and his country.”
This exchange and another in which the former senator Rick Santorum and Pennyslvanie Mitt Romney made fun of each other, marked the beginning of this last debate held before the first primary of the Grand Old Party (GOP ) to be held Tuesday.
According to polls, Mitt Romney is the favorite in this election in New Hampshire.
The next primary will be held January 21 in South Carolina, the first southern state to hold such a consultation in the nomination contest. Mitt Romney is proud of having already received support from the state governor, Nikki Haley.
Sunday’s debate was speaking just hours after another Saturday night, during which rival Mitt Romney had tried to destabilize it. But they eventually spent more time bickering among themselves, each trying to present itself as the most serious opponent of the former governor of Massachusetts.
Typically, the debate held on Sunday reflected the same trend as that of the previous day.
