Mitt Romney and Newt GingrichBY ANNA PEIRANO

A number of Republicans have criticized Mitt Romney’s comments about how President Obama won the election by giving “gifts” to minorities such as African-Americans and Latinos. Former presidential contender Newt Gingrich has recently been among the most vocal.

The former House Speaker was on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. He said, “I just think it’s nuts. I mean, first of all, it’s insulting … the job of a political leader in part is to understand the people. If we can’t offer a better future that is believable to more people, we’re not going to win.”
