The High Cost of Going Negative in the GOP Campaign

Hosted by

Newt Gingrich didn't make the traditional courtesy call to Mitt Romney after last night's defeat in Florida, and the message is clear: Romney's massive onslaught of TV attack ads has left the Republican Party more divided than ever, with Gingrich still leading in the national polls. As the battle heats up, Rick Santorum has hope of being the last candidate standing, and Ron Paul shows no signs of quitting. They're all on their way to Nevada, a state staggered by unemployment and home foreclosures, where Republicans will caucus on Saturday. Can they all go on until the August convention? Are they damaging the Republican cause or honing the ultimate challenge to President Obama?
