Grassroots Boots For Newt!

Georgians with Newt,

Just a few weeks ago many of you headed north to Iowa to help in our efforts before the Caucuses. Now, it is time to deploy to South Carolina.

Starting on Monday, January 9th, and continuing through the Primary on Saturday, January 21st, we have created a rolling deployment plan to make sure the people of South Carolina know where Newt stands when it comes to protecting this country and to share Newt’s bold solutions to defeat President Obama.

There are opportunities to join people from all over the country in phone banking, walking door-to-door, waving signs, and many other exciting campaign activities!
If you are interested in traveling to South Carolina please contact Ella Krivitchenko at ellak@newt.org to let her know your availability and preferred dates of travel. In addition, please copy Sonya Harrison at sharrison@newt.org.

Thank you!

This Won’t Play Well In South Carolina

This from Redstate.com

“Posted by Erick Erickson (Diary)

Wednesday, January 4th at 10:43PM EST

Rick Santorum has some pent up issues with Jim DeMint.

Just a few weeks before DeMint stood for re-election on South Carolina’s ballot, Rick Santorum showed up in DeMint’s neighborood to tell everyone Jim DeMint was wrong on earmarks. “Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania said the Constitution gives Congress control of the purse strings and that he supported earmarks for port deepening while a senator – the opposite of the position that DeMint is taking. But former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia said DeMint has shown “moral courage” in refusing to support any earmarks, including one that the State Ports Authority says is needed to study the deepening of Charleston Harbor.”

Santorum went on John King USA on CNN tonight and again defended earmarks claiming “Jim DeMint did it too” without acknowledging DeMint repented and has since led the fight against earmarks. When asked about what he may or may not have said about black welfare recipients, Santorum defended himself by claiming he got earmarks for a black community in Pennsylvania.

Get ready for conservatives to have to refight this critical fight against the gateway drug to big government spending.

It’s not just Rick Santorum knocking Jim DeMint (!!!) when not hiding behind DeMint to claim tea party bona fides, Santorum is also going to have trouble in South Carolina because of his voting record. He opposed National Right to Work legislation.  (Read more)

Georgians invade Iowa for Gingrich

DES MOINES, Iowa — Talking too much about an old friend has been painful for Gordon Austin.

Newt Gingrich and his wife, Callista, campaign in Atlantic, Iowa, on Saturday.

“I have the bruise on my ear to prove it,” said the retired surgeon from Carrollton. He’s here with his wife, Meredith, and 30 other Georgia volunteers, working phone banks, carrying signs — whatever it takes to push Newt Gingrich across the finish line in Tuesday’s Iowa caucuses, the first real votes cast in the 2012 presidential campaign.

Gingrich’s up-and-down candidacy has prompted what may be the largest Georgia invasion of this state since a certain peanut farmer helped create the legend of Iowa’s political clout 35 years ago.

The question is whether this latest Southern incursion will be large enough — and strong enough — to preserve the former Georgia congressman’s recently won status as the predominant obstruction between former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and an early stampede to the Republican presidential nomination.

Romney and Texas congressman Ron Paul, whom the latest polls tout as the front-runners in Iowa, took a break from the state Saturday. Both are confident of a good showing when tens of thousands of Iowa Republicans gather in living rooms and civic halls to cast their secret ballots.

The other candidates continued to slog it out, including Gingrich — who this weekend has his wife, two daughters and a brace of Atlanta grandchildren in tow.

“No one knows who’s going to decide to turn out. No one knows what the conversations are going to be like at the caucuses. I think that up to half the caucus-goers are going to be potentially willing to switch during the course of the evening, as they talk with each other,” Gingrich told about 150 voters crammed into a coffee shop in Creston, a grain town in the southern hills where the wooden floors still shake when the trains rumble through.

It was late Friday, the final stop of the day. A weary Gingrich had already won the daily headline war with a few tears shed before a group of Republican women, as he talked about his late mother and her struggle with a bipolar disorder.

Presidential campaigns in Iowa are traditionally about the human touch. Gingrich’s damp eyes were cited as proof that the former U.S. House speaker isn’t the ogre that a barrage of negative TV ads here has declared him to be.

Gingrich was his usual sharp-tongued self, but that was something that Jerry and Karla Hynes — he’s a landlord, she works in a bank — were looking for. In 2008, they were Democrats and supporters of Hillary Clinton. This year, they intend to change their party registration and vote in Tuesday’s caucuses.

Jerry Hynes said he appreciates brashness. “I’m looking for someone willing to lose it all to get what he thinks would be good for the nation,” he said.

Last Chance To Support Newt in 2011

Newt 2012

Dear Friend and Supporter,

2011 is ending with a flurry of good news out of Iowa. Conservative radio talk show host Steve Deace and Herman Cain’s Iowa director Larry Tuel have both made endorsementsNewt 2012 of Newt’s candidacy.

‘Black Hawk Down’ commander stumps for Gingrich

Written by
Mitchell Schmidt | Iowa City Press-Citizen

Colonel Michael Steele says he supports Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s campaign for the former U.S. House Speaker’s ability to take action.

Steele, who retired in 2010 after almost three decades in the U.S. Army and was Company Commander of the U.S. Army Ranger company portrayed in the book and film Black Hawk Down, said this coming year’s election is pivotal.

“I believe we have one shot left, the way we vote is the way our nation goes and I think if we screw this up we’re not getting another shot at it, we have to pick the right man,” he said, adding that he endorses Gingrich’s campaign for a change in Washington. “I for one am tired of people talking, and would offer it is time to replace a professional talker in the White House with a professional doer. Newt Gingrich is a professional doer, he gets things done. And we are in a point in our nation’s history where we need to get things done.”

Steele addressed a small crowd of roughly 10 individuals Friday at the Coralville Marriott Hotel and Conference Center along with Gingrich’s brother and 30-year law enforcement official Randy McPherson.

McPherson admitted this was his first political speech but said he wanted to endorse Gingrich for president, not just because of their family ties, but for the presidential candidate’s view toward law enforcement and gun rights.

McPherson said he supports Gingrich’s pledge for “positive campaign” ads but added that it is sometimes frustrating when so many negative ads have been run recently in the state leading up to the Jan. 3 caucus.

“What’s your positive idea?,” McPherson asked of opponents of his brother’s campaign. “If you don’t think that ‘s a good idea, what do you think would be?”

McPerson, chief of the cigarette Enforcement Division in the Pennsylvania Bureau of Criminal Tax Investigation, said he is encouraged by reports of possible record numbers of Republican voters in Iowa on Tuesday.

“I think it just shows there are a lot of people who want to see change and are not happy with the current thing and they’re voicing their opinion,” he said. “A huge turnout is indicative of what’s going to come in the general election.”
