Republican Campaigns Debate Behind the Debate
Gingrich's campaign delayed its first email slam until 9:14 p.m., with about 45 minutes left in the debate.
But unlike Paul's and Romney's carefully crafted assaults, Gingrich's camp simply sent a copy of a Boston Globe article that questioned Romney's stance on contraception.
The Santorum campaign, still running on a tight budget, did not send any emails, which made the former senator the only candidate without a voice in the email circus.
After the debate finished around 10 p.m., Romney delivered three more emails -- all focused on politicians who supported him -- while Gingrich sent a duplicate of his first email that quoted the Boston Globe.Total tally of opposition emails received by this reporter during the debate: Romney, 10; Paul, three; Gingrich, three. Targeted in the debate: Santorum, eight times; Romney, three times. -- Written by Joe Deaux in New York. >Contact by Email. >Follow Joe Deaux on Twitter. Subscribe on Facebook.
