Newt Gingrich's campaign announced today that it is buying 30 minute blocks of air time on television stations in order to show a lengthy speech by Gingrich about how his plans would result in lower gasoline prices.
From a Gingrich press release:
"The answer to Governor Romney’s 30 second attack ads filled with garbage is a 30 minute address filled with substance,” says Gingrich Communications Director Joe DeSantis. “Newt’s message about lowering gasoline and other energy prices is resonating and the Obama administration is on defense over their policies hostile to American energy production, which are causing pain at the pump."
Gingrich's press release also notes that the speech was delivered "without a teleprompter or text" - the type of line about President Obama that often draws loud cheers on the stump.
