The campaign attacks are beginning to get so nasty in the Presidential primary that Newt Gingrich is threatening to sue.

Gingrich’s campaign is threatening to sue South Carolina and Florida television stations that air an ad by a pro-Romney super-PAC claiming Gingrich was “fined” $300,000 for ethics violations during the 1990s, according to The Hill.

The ad says that Gingrich is a desperate candidate who has “more baggage than the airport.”

Gingrich attorney Stefan Passantino called the commercial “a defamatory communication which exposes this station to potential civil liability” in a letter sent to television stations, according to NBC Politics.
