Telegraphing a likely message for tonight’s debate in Des Moines, IA, Newt Gingrich told a crowd assembled at his first Iowa HQ in Urbandale Saturday that he will remain “relentlessly positive” on the campaign trail.
Further, he promised to rebuke anyone on runs negative ads in his name. Gingrich is currently the target of a massive negative TV ad campaign run by a super PAC supporting Mitt Romney.
“We will not engage in negative ads. We’re not going to engage in tearing people down,” Gingrich said. “And if anybody does go out and create any kind of super PAC using my name, if they run any negative ads, we will attack them and we will encourage people to give them no money.”
