UPDATE: Gregg Phillips, managing director for Winning our Future, responded to Gingrich's request by writing an open letter to Mitt Romney, asking the candidate to answer five questions about his time at Bain.
Phillips writes, "We will agree to revise our ads and/or the video to reflect any errors that may be present in the current version of the video. To do this, however, we respectfully request you answer a few questions that might help guide our review."
The questions for Romney revolve around the timing of his departure from Bain. Phillips asks: "When did you leave Bain for good – full time or part time? When did you relinquish controlling interest in Bain, any Bain projects or Bain funds? When did you resign as the CEO? When was the last Bain document submitted to the government denoting you as an executive at Bain? When did you receive the final check from Bain for any investment in which you had and interest?"
(CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich called on the super PAC supporting his candidacy to remove inaccuracies in an ad and video, or pull the two off the air, but failed to cite any specific errors in the spots.
"Winning Our Future," the super PAC supporting the former House speaker is currently airing an ad in South Carolina, which features clips from the longer movie, "King of Bain." The nearly half hour video criticizes rival GOP hopeful Mitt Romney over his history as CEO at Bain Capital.

In a statement Friday, Gingrich also once again called on Romney to repudiate ads from a super PAC supporting his candidacy and used the opportunity to once again highlight what he sees as the incorrect elements in the anti-Gingrich spots.
"The American people deserve a robust debate and full comparison of the plans and records of the people who are asking for their vote," Gingrich said. "They also deserve assurances that the information they are hearing is accurate. I am committed to holding my campaign and my supports to this high standard of accuracy and I hope Governor Romney will do the same."
The release from Team Gingrich linked to three stories that took issue with the spots from "Restore Our Future," the pro-Romney group, and criticized the former Massachusetts governor's history of job creation at Bain.
Candidates are not allowed to coordinate with so-called super PACs, organizations that have flooded the airwaves in early presidential voting states. Spots from the independent groups have received increased scrutiny during this election cycle. Gingrich has taken particular aim at Romney over ads, critical of Gingrich that flooded the airwaves mostly in New Hampshire. Romney insisted that by law he had no authority over the PAC.
