Gingrich disagrees with Jeb Bush on GOP

(CNN) - Former GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich pushed back against comments made by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush Monday, in which Bush argued Ronald Reagan would struggle to fit in with what he described as today's partisan-charged Republican Party.

"I'm not sure what Jeb's referring to," Gingrich said on CNN's "John King, USA." "We just had a pretty grueling campaign, which had a fair amount of disagreement, a pretty wide range of views from Ron Paul to say Tim Pawlenty."

VIDEO: Romney reaches out to Latinos

(CNN) - Former Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez talked about his new role helping Mitt Romney reach Latino voters on Wednesday. Gutierrez was tapped to head the presumptive GOP presidential nominee's Hispanic Steering Committee, the Romney campaign announced earlier in the day.

"Hispanics have been political pawns to be used every time an election comes up," he said on CNN's "John King, USA." " We need to look holistically and strategically about immigration long-term because it’s going to become an economic and competitive issue."

Romney's former No. 2 defends his Mass. record

(CNN) - While Democrats have zeroed in on Mitt Romney's record as former Massachusetts governor, Kerry Healey, Romney's former lieutenant governor, on Monday said the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has "nothing to be ashamed of" when it comes to his time in office.

"Looking at Governor Romney’s record in Massachusetts is only going to reinforce what a strong candidate he is and how he does understand how to create jobs. It’s a shocking thing to see that these numbers are not only taken out of context, they’re represented in ways that are really quite dishonest," she said on CNN's "John King, USA."
