Carville emails Dems: 'No Newts allowed'

The Democrats dispatched James Carville again for fundraising on Thursday, this time in an email advertising a free trip to meet President Obama at the Democrats' fundraiser on June 18.

Check out the email below. It is interesting that Carville leads the email by mentioning that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) headlining the Republican's big fundraising dinner. That's another sign that Democrats see an opportunity in Gingrich's recent ubiquity.

Here's the email:
