I’ve received emails from Newt Gingrich campaign for some time now, and figured it’s high time to share what’s happening. No, I don’t support Newt; I blog about politics and back President Barack Obama, so someone on his campaign figured they should keep me in the loop. Cool.
This email from his campaign manager is the latest news, and flying in the face of forecasts that he will lose again in Louisiana.
Tomorrow the people of Louisiana go to the ballot box, and Newt is gaining momentum at just the right time. Yesterday, Newt overwhelmingly won the Baton Rouge Tea Party straw poll with 53%, his second major Tea Party straw poll victory in Louisiana.
Here are yesterday’s full results:
Gingrich – 53%
Paul – 25%
Santorum – 20%
Romney – 1%
As Newt travels across Louisiana, it’s clear his message of $2.50 gasoline is resonating and voters are responding to his bold leadership that has put President Obama on the defensive over his failed policies.
To capitalize on our momentum, we are asking all our supporters to do three things today:
1. Make 10 phone calls to undecided voters from our simple phone-from-home system
2. Contact all your friends and family who live in Louisiana and urge them to vote for Newt tomorrow
3. Make a generous donation to help support our Get Out The Vote effort tomorrow
As a people-powered campaign we have relied heavily on our grassroots volunteers, and today we need your help now more than ever. Your hard work today will go a long way towards helping Newt tomorrow in Louisiana.
Thanks for all you do for Newt’s campaign.
Well, let’s see how that bit of news plays out for Newt today.
