Just last week, as Iowans were re-suspecting that he was only in this thing to hawk his dumb Ronald DVDs and alternate histories, Newt Gingrich announced that he would launch a 44-stop(!) bus tour ahead of the caucuses. SEE GUYS? EFFORT.
Newt Gingrich is planning to turn to a sharp "jobs and growth" message both on the airwaves and in over 30 appearances next week in the final run-up to the Iowa caucuses, according to campaign officials.
Over 30 opportunities to sell c-movies... er... run for president of Iowa!
The "Iowa Jobs and Prosperity Bus Tour" will make 22 stops between now and the Jan. 3 caucuses. That's exactly half of the 44 he said he would make last week when announcing the tour during a stop in Davenport.
He'll have fled the country by tomorrow night.
