New York Times: “Newt Gingrich angrily turned aside questions Thursday about his marital history at the outset of the final Republican presidential debate before the South Carolina primary, and then aggressively took on Mitt Romney and the other remaining candidates in a raucous confrontation about immigration, abortion, conservative credentials and electability.”

Politico: “Newt Gingrich launched into a tirade against the news media at the top of the Republican primary debate here, blasting one television network for airing a damaging interview with his ex-wife, Marianne, and tearing into another for making it the subject of a question in Thursday night’s forum.”

Washington Post: “At moments, the debate seemed to center on Romney, Gingrich and Santorum; at one point, when King called on Paul, he feigned relief and wiped his forehead.”
