Dear Friend and Supporter,
As the Iowa caucuses approach, the media’s favorite storyline is that the Republican candidates are eager to "take the gloves off," "bloody" each other up, and "go negative" against each other. Newt Gingrich has made it clear from the beginning, though, that this campaign will not resort to the sort of mudslinging that the media loves. Speaker Gingrich reiterated to me and the rest of the staff yesterday that this campaign is committed to discussing big ideas and raising the level of debate, not tearing down other Republicans.
We are not going to run negative ads against other Republican candidates, and we are not going to resort to the sort of baseless lies and personal attacks that too often pass for public debate these days. Newt’s rise in the polls is not the result of a campaign, it’s a movement based on big ideas to rebuild America and on a hunger for a higher level of debate. We commit once again today to run a campaign worthy of the office of President of the United States.
This isn’t to say that we won’t continue to confront the failed policies of President Obama and the advocates of expanding government. This is our moment to start building the campaign that will challenge the failures of the entire administration across the country. Eric Holder might be getting free pass from the media on ‘Fast and Furious,’ and it will be incumbent on this campaign to expose the systematic lack of leadership that starts at the top, but we can only do that with your support. Your financial contribution to this campaign will be used to build an organization that will make Barack Obama a one-term President, because this campaign is headed by a real leader who understands that, as Republicans, we must be united in 2012.
