A campaign poster of Republican presidential hopeful, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s dad, George Romney, hangs on a wall at Robie’s General Store in Hooksett, N.H., Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2007. Also, at left, an Vietnam War era image of another Republican presidential candidate, then naval aviator John McCain.
The gloves are definitely off between Mitt Romney and John McCain in New Hampshire.
- Romney: â€œIâ€™ve had personal attacks launched on me both in Iowa and in NH, and at this stage I havenâ€™t responded on a personal basis but Iâ€™m not making any guarantees. I havenâ€™t decided what weâ€™re doing down the road.â€
- McCain: â€œI know something about tailspins, and itâ€™s pretty clear Mitt Romney is in one. Itâ€™s disappointing that he would launch desperate, flailing and false attacks in an attempt to maintain relevance. As the Union Leader said today, New Hampshire voters just arenâ€™t buying his act, and these latest attacks wonâ€™t help him.â€
