Newt Gingrich Campaigns in New Orleans
Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich is asking supporters for small donations to keep his campaign alive. He’s saying those small donations could lead to a large campaign base.
The former House speaker met with supporters in New Orleans. He’s asking for donations of $2.50 — the amount he says will buy a gallon of gas under his energy policy.
“Every person we can get to sign up for $2.50 gives us another volunteer, another person we can contact by email, lowers the cost of campaigning, increases our reach across the country. And we’ve been adding 500 or 1,000 people a day.”
Gingrich says he can’t compete with donations drawn by front-runner Mitt Romney.
The Louisiana primary is March 24.
