Gingrich also drew a contrast between his policies and those of Santorum, arguing that the former Pennsylvania Senator’s ties to labor unions play well in the industrial states but not in the South.
“Santorum has been historically a labor union Senator from Pennsylvania,” Gingrich said on “This Week.” “He voted against national right to work. He voted for [the Davis-Bacon Act], which cost state and local governments billions of dollars in favor of unions. And he voted for every single minimum wage increase that the unions asked for. ... And when you get out of the industrial states, I think it gets harder for Rick to put together a majority, so we’ll see how it goes next Tuesday.”
