No mat­ter what his chances on Su­per Tues­day, Newt Gin­grich is fierce. He’s launched a 30-sec­ond cam­paign ad in five pri­mary states tout­ing his plan for $2.50 per gal­lon gas by in­creas­ing do­mes­tic pro­duc­tion and cut­ting reg­u­la­tory red tape. Mean­while, Her­man Cain, J.C. Watts and daugh­ter Jackie Gin­grich Cush­man em­bark on a “$2.50 Gas Tour” in Ok­la­homa to sup­port the mes­sage on Mon­day, with stops in Tulsa, Ok­la­homa City and Mid­west City.

“We’ve com­pletely over­reg­u­lated our­selves, and our de­pen­dency on for­eign oil is prob­lem­atic. A lot of con­ser­va­tive vot­ers will quickly iden­tify with this mes­sage,” for­mer Ok­la­homa Re­pub­li­can Party state di­rec­tor Chad Alexan­der tells In­side the Belt­way.

Mr. Gin­grich him­self is cur­rently cam­paign­ing in Ten­nessee, will roar through Alabama on Tues­day, then set­tle in to await the re­turns in At­lanta by evening. In a post-pri­mary world, he and wife Cal­lista re­turn to Alabama on Wed­nes­day, then on to Mis­sis­sippi and Kansas at week’s end.
