Would you pay $50 for a photo with Newt?

The cash-strapped Newt Gingrich campaign has seized upon a new fundraising scheme: Supporters now have to pay $50 to take a photo with the GOP candidate.

Photos with Newt were previously free. A spokesman tells the National Journal: "Some campaigns make you travel all the way to Wall Street to pay $2,500 for a photo with a candidate.

We are trying out a new tactic and asking our supporters at rallies for a nominal donation. And guess what; it's working."

The Gingrich campaign is $1.6 million in debt, election finance reports show. That means he only needs to take 32,000 photos to break-even.
