The Gingrich Challenge

An Insider Advantage poll shows Newt Gingrich takes the lead in Florida as Republican candidates focus on the upcoming primary.

To some, especially to backers of Mitt Romney, the news may be disturbing. But a wee bit of wisdom from the editorial desk the Wall Street Journal helps puts things into perspective:
As for the GOP establishment, such as it still is, Mr. Gingrich's re-emergence is likely to cause a panic attack. They don't believe he is electable. Our advice would be to relax and let the voters decide. If Mr. Romney can't marshal the wit and nerve to defeat the speaker, then he isn't likely to defeat Mr. Obama.
