Gingrich Runs 'Contract' Contest to Raise Funds

In a bid to raise money for his presidential campaign, Newt Gingrich is sponsoring a contest that gives someone the chance to be the first to see his new “Contract with America,” according to a report Thursday in the Chicago Tribune.
The former House speaker is asking potential donors to contribute at least $19.94 to his 2012 campaign. The contest comes just before the 17th anniversary next week of his old “Contract with America, ” which helped Republicans take control of the House in 1994.
In return, one donor will be chosen to receive a signed copy of the old 10-point contract and will be the first to get a glimpse of the new contract he plans to unveil in a speech next week.
Gingrich, according to the Des Moines Register, promised a small group of Iowans earlier this week that his new contract “will be 10 times deeper and more comprehensive than 1994.”
“Because the truth is,” he was quoted as saying, “while we changed the system some . . . we didn’t fundamentally change the underlying system.”
