What some who -- you are demanding and that he turned over his tax returns because it certainly has become an issue at least an issue among the media and what the voters in South Carolina are gonna say about it tomorrow.
But -- Governor Christie is urged him to do it do you urged him to turn -- those tax returns since there's so much clamor for -- Well first of all tell you it is the media source because the people across the statement like cares about -- tax -- -- what they care about.
His job spending in the economy and what they saw on stage last night was you had Washington's -- -- people he only had one person that knew what it was like to create jobs.

Yeah I know I think that -- campaign has asked for the Gingrich campaign to turn over information by the investigation of the ethics investigation in the ninety's about governor -- -- about speaker Gingrich.
But -- by turning the tax returns over in April it is after the majority the primaries to the voters cannot consider if they wanna consider it.
Well I've talked to him about it and I asked him.
Forty want to do and the truth is the Democrats are only coming after Romney right now and he knows that the -- he turned over the tax returns.
The more deadly washing themselves and all these other Democrats are gonna go in time poke -- -- what they're gonna see is this is a man who's been successful.
He's paid illegal tax rate he's always made it on time.
And he's gonna release it what I will tell you the people across the -- -- they don't want to talk about his tax return they want to talk about jobs they want to talk about what he's gonna do to get us back to work.
They care about our military and this is a man who wants to strengthen our military.
I'm telling you that have been on the ground let them all day.
In the rain across the state the energy is incredible for governor Romney he had a great debate last night -- just resonated with the people.
He said everything they wanted to hear and you can tell in the rallies have been just in the hundreds out in the rain it's pretty amazing.
What is your thought about Governor Sarah Palin injected -- -- inching issue in the South Carolina raised this issues indoors seeing.
Speaker Gingrich but she said that she wouldn't vote -- are endorsed him in South Carolina for the point -- having this ad contest go on longer and to us.
Foster more debates.
Has hurt has your statement about South Carolina and speaker Gingrich had any impact on voters.
I I have the greatest respect for therapy on -- consider her -- dear friend I have not heard anybody talk about it I think it.
You she's very song not wanting people vetted she's very strong on people knowing the power their voices.
Our concern that we have is the Democrats are hitting on Romney so hard.
That the sooner we going to solve this casino we can -- and strengthen us to get us going right now they're raising millions of dollars.
While we're sitting here fighting through the states I -- heard it in South Carolina right now they feel pretty song it's going to be a tight race tomorrow hands down.
But I will tell you the energy really started going our way today in a strong strong way that I think it's going to be a nice -- tomorrow.
Why isn't about eight or nine hours before polls open I used to running into people I know you're -- -- crowds of traveling now where you are.
But they still hearing about people who have not made up their minds.
Feel and what we've seen is it yesterday morning I have a lot of pairing people calling me saying they want to jump ball border with Romney this morning and it.
Across as I've heard people call and I never -- into the office they were really saying.
That after the debate it felt better -- -- they didn't want more the Washington chaos they really saw a difference between private sector they felt like the private sector was being put under debate.
And they really feel like that the Democrat talking -- is something shifted yesterday that really started to go in -- direction and so what I can tell you is.
A few undecideds but when they came out to the rally today they all left in the Raleigh when they are not ready to go out votes -- -- all them all positive at least from what I've seen today an energy is excited.
But is extraordinary and eyes are on your state because as we understand that South Carolina has always chosen not -- since 1980 snow around.
