Gingrich Campaign Begins Charging $50 for Photos With Newt


Some campaigns make you travel all the way to Wall Street to pay $2,500 for a photo with a candidate,” said Newt Gingrich campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond in a statement concerning the campaign’s new fund-raising effort — a $50 donation for a photo with Mr. Gingrich himself. “We chose to do it differently and ask our supporters for a nominal donation.” That’s 98 percent off the rate charged by other campaigns and he’ll come to you! Talk about service. But that’s not all: “We also have an online store where supporters can buy hats, shirts and even a bandana for your dog.”
