Gingrich Gets Boost in Donations, Staff

As other Republican presidential hopefuls are seeing their fortunes slide, things are looking up for Newt Gingrich.

Rick Perry had his “oops” gaffe, Herman Cain has been dogged by old sexual harassment allegations, and Republicans just can’t seem to warm up to Mitt Romney as a nominee. Meanwhile, the former House speaker is taking in more donations and adding staff and volunteers in key states.

“So much for sneaking up on the front-runners," Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond told Paul Bedard of  U.S. News & World Report. "Now, it is inevitable: 2012 is the year of the solutions candidate.”

Gingrich is bringing on more staffers in Iowa to help him get ready for the Iowa caucuses. This weekend he will open a campaign office in South Carolina, which holds the first Southern primary.

Hammond said the donations are really picking up.

“This week is the strongest fundraising week of the campaign," he told U.S. News.

Gingrich is also seeing his stock rise in the polls. A CBS poll out Friday found him tied with Romney for second place and just three percentage points behind Cain, who is slipping in the network’s surveys.
