TAMPA (2012-1-23) -

Mitt Romney called fellow presidential candidate Newt Gingrich "erratic," with Gingrich responding that Romney is increasingly desperate as they both campaigned Monday in Tampa.

Gingrich campaigned at a Tampa church Monday afternoon, shortly after Romney criticized him for not fully revealing his business dealings after leaving Congress. Gingrich - who's reveling in his new position atop the Florida polls - referred to Romney's recent spate of negative campaigning.

The comments came just hours before a nationally-televised debate from the University of South Florida. In just the past week, the Florida primary has turned from what had looked like a coronation for Romney into what some polls predict will be an uphill battle.
