It’s been an historic 48 hours

Newt 2012
Dear James,

Something incredible happened over the last two days, and if you rely on theNewt 2012 traditional media, you may have missed it. Friday night, I was with the campaign in Iowa for a Ronald Reagan dinner, and after watching four of the other candidates speak, Speaker Gingrich confidently took the stage. What he did next defied the viciousness of the modern political campaign: Newt offered praise for each of the candidates in the room individually. He praised them for their strengths, and then made his case why he is the best candidate to be the next President of the United States, and he did it without tearing others down to make himself look good.

He also promised that after he got the nomination that his schedule would become the White House schedule, and he would appear four hours after every Obama appearance until the President agreed to seven, three-hour Lincoln-Douglas style debates. There will be no moderator, just a timekeeper, and as an extra incentive the Speaker would be willing to allow the President to use a teleprompter! It is becoming more common to hear Newt get the loudest applause, but Friday night in Iowa, he brought the house down!

Saturday, the campaign traveled to Texas for a unique discussion on entitlements with Herman Cain. The format allowed both of the candidates to go beyond :30 second sound bites and give detailed answers on Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. The media has already tried to portray the event as a “snooze fest,” but I can tell you that the audience was enthralled! The overwhelming feedback from the audience was that they "wish all the debates were like this.”

The major media largely tried to ignore this event because it threatens their debates, which tend to focus more on their moderators and perceived personal drama than on policy. They tell us that is the only way they can get ratings, but last night proved that to be hogwash!

After the event, one reporter asked if fundraising was the only thing left blocking Newt from the Republican nomination. That kind of question clearly shows that even the media is starting to see the momentum of this campaign, but they want to know if we can raise enough money to be competitive.

We need to make a statement to the media that this surge is real by making this week the best fundraising week of the campaign! If you have been won over by Speaker Gingrich’s ideas and would pay money to see a Newt-Obama debate, here is your chance. Let’s raise ONE MILLION DOLLARS for Newt 2012 this week! If you are ready for a new kind of campaign, bold changes, and experienced leadership please make a generous contribution right now!

I know that many of you have already given to the campaign recently, and we are so grateful for your continued support, but it is important that we put a huge fundraising number up this week. If you can afford another financial contribution, will you please invest in this campaign again today?
