Romney faces challenges from both the left and right

WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — Should Mitt Romney survive the Newtian Surge and fend off any other challenges from his rivals for the GOP nomination, a preview of what awaits him in the general election can be found in a new television ad crafted by the Democratic National Committee.

The ad points viewers to a website, which features a video that highlights what the DNC says is Romney’s flip-flops on abortion, the economic stimulus package, health care, global warming, assault weapons, and even the legacy of Ronald Reagan.

Romney, of course, has other, more immediate concerns beyond the Democratic Party. The endorsement of Newt Gingrich on Sunday by the influential Union Leader newspaper in New Hampshire holds the potential of undermining Romney’s support in a state that weeks ago appeared to be certain to go his way.
