Gin­grich blasts gas tax in re­marks at State House

The Washington Times Daily - - Metro -

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.
