Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer blasted Newt Gingrich on Monday for boasting about his chances to win the Florida primary, despite being 14 points behind Mitt Romney.

“This is becoming an act of self-indulgence, an act of complete self-centered maniacal behavior by Newt Gingrich,” he said on Current TV’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, which was guest hosted by Bill Press.

Spitzer noted that Gingrich’s campaign was funded by a small number of very wealthy donors, and that those donors could be pressured by Republicans to drop their support.

“Newt Gingrich’s campaign is not being funded by small grassroots donors,” he said. “That spigot might get turned off… If they turn off that spigot, then Newt Gingrich is gone.”
