Newt Gingrich said he was “appalled” that CNN would start the Republican presidential debate by first asking about Gingrich’s ex wife’s comment that Gingrich wanted an “open marriage”.
The question was asked as CNN hosted the remaining candidates in a debate in Charleston, South Carolina Thursday night before the crucial South Carolina primary vote tomorrow.
Newt Gingrich is currently married to the woman he had a relationship with outside of his marriage when he was House Speaker in the 1990’s.
Other notable outbursts from the debate last night include Gingrich saying, “Obama is the most dangerous president of our lifetime.”
Candidate Rick Perry bailed out and has endorsed Gingrich.
It was revealed Gingrich paid $994,708 on an adjusted gross income of $3.14 million in 2010 according to CNN.
