Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina joins us now live to -- -- -- to give us his take on what happened yesterday in.
Florida and governor always good to talk to you on the way.
That was quite a trounce scene -- Newt Gingrich took did it surprise you.
Yeah in the same way that I didn't expect Gingrich to win but -- -- that he -- in South Carolina didn't expect to lose critics important vision and -- -- -- was quite expression.
And has a lot of -- obviously.
What comes next.
It one at get your take on the negativity that is taken place not just in South Carolina some of the attack ads but in Florida.
They were really running.
24 hours a day seven days a week especially in the last ten days.
And when you look at some of our exit polls what we're finding is the -- ability.
Of both Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney have gone down and gone down considerably.
Does that suggest to you knew that.
While being negative attack ads may work in in changing voters' minds they're doing damage to both the candidates.
Yeah I mean I guess this is being expected doing you know it -- primaries -- -- -- probably what was most illustrated.
With the floor results were a couple of just sort of basics of politics what is it money matters it's considered monies that mother's milk of politics and you really matters declarations and understand it you know -- -- was outspent but outside a woman wouldn't include all the super -- everything else.
And that takes a cool it the other I think that was interesting is -- you know once you know political course fully if you will -- drinks they're running just edit larger political portfolio of -- thrown from -- -- organizational and stand quarter.
Establishment endorsements instead of -- -- of -- -- -- super Max.
And the third thing it really struck me was the degree would -- Eric's going back to your negativity ever.
And I'm gonna have a major impact -- subscriber I talked to a couple president of Florida based it exactly what you just sit just a moment ago I would just.
The last ten days in this race stand there -- decidedly negative.
It pronounced in terms of how much television Dexia corner.
If anything you know as you know governor Ed -- rip packs came about because of the US Supreme Court decision in in Citizens United.
Was that a good or bad decision.
Oh well I haven't yet we see.
Her legal scholars -- was good or bad -- let me what I happen to believe it or not appeal to give this woman wants to.
And I -- that they believe it but.
But he ought to be disclosed in -- would be evident at hand that the voters making decisions about six months later track.
But that's what I have I believe everybody is it different take on -- work.
Once you should do what it does do those students certainly -- mockery of its present form.
To present election -- to take it to the little guy there can give you a couple thousand bucks well because whose article today's Wall Street -- talking about.
-- -- dirty energies considered million dollars -- super pacs I think it it does make a mockery of the existing senator cools and we've grown public polls like.
-- -- You know I actually was reading the -- the other day believe it or not by John Paul Stevens in Citizens United and he worried.
He worried about the impact of of wealth and especially corporate wealth drowning out.
The First Amendment.
-- free speech rights of of the little guy the individual of which of whom you just spoke.
And I mean I -- he has a point that.

-- -- very much more than you could say collectively share based on his level well so I think that there's something there but but -- -- going back to this race.
Wanted a president that was interesting is.
You know refer -- is huge when it was Saturday you gotta give Romney credit for the way he -- back -- South Carolina you know we're resilient pushed.
He's still inconclusive.
And he beat the debate if you will -- with conservatives and -- Tea Party types.
Certainly close went -- the -- but did conclusive debate which -- says to me.
Given the way it.
It's -- you know Santorum and Gingrich -- also we're staying -- him.
That this is going to be more protected than people realize who want to look at -- I -- delegates captured this point I think this thing's gonna want for a while.
Does that help or hurt the eventual nominee.
Well I mean I suspect he beat ultimately helps because -- are concerned and this notion nerves.
Not wrapping it up and moving quickly to the general election.

About what this party believes in -- that the more delegates and more folks in different states.
