What does the Tea Party think of Newt Gingrich? Tea Party Patriots co-founders weigh in

Just hours after the conclusion of this Saturday's GOP presidential debate, the Democratic National Committee launched an attack ad aimed at the current Republican front-runner Newt Gingrich. In a 90-second web video, the DNC blasts the Former House Speaker, labeling him the "original Tea Partier."

According to a recent CNN/Time/ORC poll, Gingrich is taking home a sizable chunk of the Tea Party vote in Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire an South Carolina. However, fellow presidential hopeful Ron Paul says that Gingrich is no friend of the Tea Party.

Mark Meckler and Jenny Beth Martin, co-founders of one of the most influential Tea Party groups in the country, the Tea Party Patriots join American Morning today to discuss the GOP candidates and to weigh in on this weekend's Republican debate.
