(Newser) – Newt Gingrich's super PAC is jumping into the Florida mudslinging contest, with an ad bashing Mitt Romney over his role in helping to devise mandate-based health care. The Winning Our Future PAC, riding high thanks to a $5 million donation from the wife of Vegas casino owner Sheldon Adelson, has bought $6 million worth of air time for a new ad tying Romney to President Obama, using past Romney quotes like, "I'm someone who is moderate. My views are progressive," CBS reports.

And what's worse than being a moderate? Being faithful to your wife. In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Gingrich painted his marital problems as a plus, even turning it into a subtle dig against Romney. "I think most people can identify," he said. "It may make me more normal than somebody who wanders around seeming perfect and maybe not understanding the human condition, and the challenges of life for normal people."
