Newt Gingrich says he is depending on a “a younger, Web-based” team to push his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination forward in New Hampshire as he scrambles to turn his new popularity into solid votes come January.
“It’s a younger, Web-based team versus the Gov. Sununu-type entrenched politicians,” the former House Speaker told the Boston Herald Sunday night in a jab at former New Hampshire Gov. John H. Sununu, a surrogate for presidential rival Mitt Romney.
“I’m going to bet on the grassroots team, and they are going to shock the older establishment types,” Gingrich said of his own campaign, headed by young New Hampshire tea party leader Andrew Hemingway. He told the Herald that the 29-year-old Hemingway has “brought a whole new level of life” to his presidential bid.
Gingrich’s surge in recent polls has put him ahead of Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who is hoping that Sununu and other establishment Republicans can help pave the way to victory in the New Hampshire primary Jan. 10.
Pulling off an upset over Romney “in his own backyard,” the Herald noted, would give Gingrich quite a boost down the road in South Carolina and other primary states.
“I’m very committed to being competitive,” Gingrich said in the Herald interview. “The potential to pick up delegates is very real and much better than it was a few weeks ago.”
