Gingrich blasts gas tax in remarks at State House
Newt Gingrich visited the state capital on Tuesday to campaign for Maryland’s April 3 presidential primary.
Mr. Gingrich toured the city during the morning and made a stop at the State House where he briefly addressed the Senate before meeting with a group of House Republicans.
While talking to reporters, he criticized Gov. Martin O’malley, a Democrat, for proposing an increase in the state’s gas tax that appears to have lost most of its support from lawmakers.
The proposal “shows as much political insensitivity as you can imagine,” he said.
