Last chance for Newt to try to undo the damage from Thursday’s debate by pushing the “true conservatives vs. establishment RINOs” message he should have been pushing all along. He’s slated for “This Week” and “Fox News Sunday” right now but he may add other shows as he tries to catch up to Romney in Florida. Meanwhile, on “Meet the Press,” it’s civil war: Romney backer John McCain versus his buddy, Gingrich backer Fred Thompson.
