Mitt Romney has a sizable lead in most New Hampshire polls heading into the first primary of the Republican nomination race, but did he take on water today?
With the election set for Tuesday, Romney is expected to win, with Ron Paul in second in every survey to date. Thus, the rest of the field is playing catch-up.
Newt Gingrich, in particular, took Mitt to task today twice over:

- His connection to Super PACs running attack ads

Later, Gingrich chastised the deluge of negative ads run by pro-Romney PACs, and specifically Mitt's failure to disavow them in a public setting. Watch:
