New York Times: “Mitt Romney…relentlessly pressed Newt Gingrich on Thursday night in their final debate before the Florida primary, seeking to regain the offensive against an insurgent candidacy that is unexpectedly threatening to upend his once seemingly indomitable front-runner’s status.”

Washington Post: “Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich sparred over illegal immigration here Thursday night, with the former Massachusetts governor saying it was ‘repulsive’ for the former House speaker to have characterized him as ‘the most anti-immigrant’ candidate in the GOP presidential race.”

Politico: “Newt Gingrich abandoned his role as Mitt Romney’s chief antagonist in Thursday night’s presidential debate, going easy on the national GOP front-runner as a third candidate joined the fray in force.”

WSJ: “The most spirited sparring was between Messrs. Romney and Gingrich, who turned from a feisty back-and-forth over preventing illegal immigration to a more personal fight over housing.”
