In a campaign stop in South Carolina, Fred Thompson takes on Mitt Romney on immigration and the load of money he’ll be spending over the next two months to win South Carolina.

“Governor, you can’t buy South Carolina. You can’t even rent it.”

“The governor of Massachusetts has now apparently put in $20 million of his personal fortune, and spent a good chunk of it in South Carolina. I haven’t bought one TV ad yet, one radio ad yet, and yet I seem to be in the lead,” he said. “So from a management standpoint, I think I‘m getting a little bit more for my money right now.”

Romney’s crew fights back.

“Support from voters is earned though hard work and new ideas. Unfortunately for Fred Thompson, he has never shown any passion for either.”
