Newt Gingrich’s latest campaign ad is the former House Speaker's "food stamps" answer taken directly from Monday’s debate in South Carolina.
Called “The Moment,” the ad hopes to build on Gingrich’s fiery performance in which he at one point received a standing ovation from the crowd.
On the campaign trail, Gingrich has repeatedly referred to Obama as “the food-stamp president,” despite criticism that he is unfairly characterizing the black community as reliant on government welfare.
At Monday’s debate, one of Gingrich’s biggest applause lines came when he rebuked moderator Juan Williams over a question about whether his statements about food stamps were offensive to minorities and the working poor. Gingrich said Tuesday that the black community was only one example of an issue that touches all Americans.
