McCain: Gingrich is 'dangerous' candidate

Newt Gingrich may have pulled out a shock victory in South Carolina, but he has yet to win the heart of one political analyst.

"Newt Gingrich is dangerous on many levels," Meghan McCain told News/Talk 92.3 KTAR's Mac & Gaydos.

The Republican daughter of Arizona Sen. John McCain said that Gingrich uses techniques that make the younger McCain dislike politics, including race-baiting.

McCain even went so far as to say that, if the election came down to Obama versus Gingrich, she would likely turn to a third-party candidate.

"I can't vote for Newt Gingrich," she said.

With McCain crossing her fingers that Gingrich doesn't get the Republican Party's nod, she again supported former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

"I still hope Romney pulls it out and keeps fighting like he should be," she said.
