US President Barack Obama waves as he arrives at the White House in Washington, DC on May 2, 2012.
The US president’s reelection campaign issues a video, in which former Republican Party presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich sharply criticizes Mitt Romney, the most-likely GOP nominee.
Barack Obama’s campaign on Wednesday released Gingrich's anti-Romney speeches on issues ranging from immigration to “venture capitalism,” the Associated Press reported.
Also on Wednesday, Gingrich ended his bid for the White House, thus boosting Romney’s chances against Texas Congressman Ron Paul. Paul is now Romney’s only rival in the battle for Republican nomination for the November 8 presidential elections.
Gingrich, who was very critical of Romney during the nomination race, only reluctantly endorsed him against Obama after withdrawing his presidential bid. "This is not a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan. This is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical, leftist president in American history," he said.
Meanwhile, Romney started his campaign in Virginia, a swing state, which is not yet clear whether it supports Obama.
“What I would do? People ask me, `What would you to get the economy going'? and I say, `well look at what the president's done, and do the opposite,''' Romney told a group of supporters in Northern Virginia.
