Newt Gingrich made his pitch yesterday to Iowa activists. He said Iowa would be "central to my future."
But he painted a dour view of his campaign and his chances at the Ames Straw Poll.
“If you are going to Ames, I need your help at Ames," Gingrich said. "We are not spending any money at Ames, so I am going to get whatever votes I get.
"I don't have the resources to compete with these guys."
