    COLUMBIA, S.C. — A new surrogate for Mitt Romney warned Saturday night that if Newt Gingrich is the nominee he could give Democrats united control of Congress.

Barbour said that he will wait until after the 2011 legislative season ends, which is scheduled to happen April 3. In today’s world, that is just very late in the game. Barbour has been going around, visiting key states, giving speeches; usually in his previous capacity as chairman of the RGA. It isn’t as if his name is already out there, but other potential candidates like Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Tim Pawlenty, Sarah Palin or Newt Gingrich have certainly...
