In Tuesday email to supporters, ex-Speaker pushes for more 4Q donations.
Newt: “When we post a big number, it will dispel the notion that this campaign doesn’t have the resources necessary to compete nationally.”

Dear Friend and Supporter,
The entire team here at Newt 2012 hopes you had a safe and merry Christmas, and now we kick off one of the most important weeks of the entire campaign. We suspended regular fundraising activity so that everyone could enjoy the week leading up to Christmas, but now we urgently need your help.
There are two campaign milestones in the coming days that are critical to the success of this historically substantive campaign. First we have just five days until the new year, and this is our last opportunity to add to our fourth quarter fundraising total. When we post a big number, it will dispel the notion that this campaign doesn’t have the resources necessary to compete nationally.
Just three days into the new year, the first votes will be cast in Iowa and we are facing a barrage of attacks trying to paint me as something other than the experienced conservative in this race. These misleading ads fail to mention the strategy I helped craft that led to the first Republican majority in the House of Representatives in nearly four decades. They also fail to mention that I balanced federal budgets, reformed welfare, made the largest capital gains tax cut in history, and saw 11 million jobs created, just to name a few of the conservative policies that I have helped champion for decades.
The choice of which candidate has the record and detailed conservative plan for the future could not be more clear. If you want a candidate who has proven that he can implement the policies that will rebuild the America we love, then we need you to make an investment in this campaign by making a financial contribution today.
Please help us advance the kind of bold policies that will send chills down the collective spine of liberals and will systematically challenge their failed ideology. Please make an investment of $25, $50, $100, up to the maximum of $2500 per individual.
