Newt Gingrich Charging For Photos

( 4UMF NEWS ) Newt Gingrich Charging For Photos:

In Newt Gingrich’s world, gas costs $2.50 a gallon — but a photo will be $50.

The ex-House Speaker has resisted a chorus of calls to abandon his seemingly doomed White House bid but has struggled to raise enough money to keep it afloat.

In fact, Gingrich will lay off about one-third of his full-time staff and is cutting back his campaign schedule, Politico.com reported on Tuesday.

So, the Gingrich camp has announced an unorthodox plan to charge supporters $50 for a photo with the candidate.

“Some campaigns make you travel all the way to Wall Street to pay $2,500 for a photo with a candidate,” said campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond. “We chose to do it differently and ask our supporters for a nominal donation.”

The plan — which Gingrich initiated while campaigning in Delaware Monday — shined an unforgiving spotlight on the campaign’s faltering finances.

Gingrich spent approximately $200,000 more in February than he raised and his campaign carries as much debt as it has cash on hand.

He also saw his fundraising total plummet to $2.6 million in February — a steep drop from the $5.6 million he raised the month before.

Gingrich won South Carolina in January, but has not recovered from the crushing defeat he suffered in Florida later that month.

He tried to rally his campaign by banking on a Southern strategy that saw him invest a lot of time and resources below the Mason-Dixon line.

Gingrich won his home state of Georgia, but lost badly in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, raising questions as to the viability of his campaign.

Much of the Republican establishment has called for Gingrich to drop out, allowing Rick Santorum to challenge leader Mitt Romney one-one-one, but the Speaker has refused and has vowed to fight on to the GOP convention in Tampa.

He has steadfastly insisted that his energy plan — which calls for gas prices to drop to just $2.50 a gallon — will captivate the Republican electorate and allow him to capture the nomination at a potentially brokered convention.

Gingrich has called Romney “the weakest frontrunner in modern times” and does not believe the Massachusetts governor can secure the necessary number of delegates to become the nominee before Tampa.

“I think the morning that he gets 1,144 that are locked down, then I think he can claim to be the nominee,” Gingrich told CNN Monday. “But until then, don’t think he can be the nominee.”
