Newt Gingrich has not made any efforts to replace his Iowa staff since they resigned en masse on June 9, or campaigned in the state since May 21 and is not scheduled to visit Iowa until July 4, according to the Des Moines Register.
The former Speaker failed to appear at a Strong America Now summit to sign a pledge to reduce the national debt. GOP rivals Tim Pawlenty, Herman Cain, and Gary Johnson were there. Gingrich instead sent a prerecorded and almost infomercial-like statement to the group. (Gingrich wants apology, says wife is being treated like Nancy Reagan)
