Gingrich to air energy infomercial in key states
CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) — Republican Newt Gingrich is taking his campaign's recent focus on reducing energy costs and boosting domestic production to the airwaves with a 30-minute infomercial-style address.
His presidential campaign said Wednesday it would buy half-hour blocks of time in key cities that vote on Super Tuesday, March 6. The cities and times are to be announced later.
The former House speaker has been trying to draw new attention to his campaign by focusing on rising gasoline prices.
His standing in the GOP nomination race has slipped dramatically since his lone win in South Carolina at the end of January.
In the ad, Gingrich ties the price and availability of cheaper energy to American economic vitality. The ad can also be seen on Gingrich's campaign website.
