New Newt Ad — ‘Winning the Argument’

No debates between now and the Iowa caucuses, you say? Here’s an attempt to remind Iowans of Gingrich’s debate prowess. (Note the first scene — where the other candidates are nodding as Gingrich talks.)

I’m told this is the opening salvo in a major Gingrich ad buy in Iowa for ads to air between now and the caucuses.

The ad text is as follows:

Clip 1: “The American people create jobs, not government. (applause)”

Slide: “Newt’s Jobs Plan”

Clip 2: “It starts very simple: lower taxes, less regulation, an American energy plan and actually be positive about people who create jobs – the opposite of the Obama plan.”

Clip 3: “Nothing will turn America around more than on election night when Barack Obama is defeated decisively! (applause)”

Slide: Newt 2012 with picture of Newt in crowd.

Voiceover: “I’m Newt Gingrich and I approve this message.”
