As Newt Gingrich draws large and enthusiastic Florida crowds ahead of next week's primary, Mitt Romney is appearing before significantly smaller throngs. While Romney spoke Wednesday morning at a metal distribution facility in Orlando, 300 unused chairs remained stacked off to the side.  That was more than the number of people he attracted, no more than 250 in all.  They cheered the Republican presidential candidate's attack on President Obama as an out-of-touch leader who needs to be replaced and lined up afterward to shake his hand and pose for pictures.

Newt Gingrich's campaign says that a new policy to charge supporters $50 to take a photo with the GOP hopeful is really a way to showcase the grass-roots strength of his shoestring campaign. Reporters traveling with the former House speaker on Monday took note of the new paid photo policy , observing that he had long taken pictures with people attending his events for free. A campaign spokesman said Gingrich will continue to do so when he works the rope lines after he speaks.
