Romney scores points in debate with attacks on Gingrich

TAMPA, Fla. - Mitt Romney was desperate for a strong debate performance in Florida's Republican debate Monday night to restore momentum for his campaign, and delivered repeated sharp attacks on rising rival Newt Gingrich.
Romney lashed out at Gingrich at the Florida debate for resigning as speaker of the US House of Representatives under an ethical cloud and repeatedly labeled him an "influence peddler."
