Gingrich Ad Uses GOP, Coal Money To Slam Climate Bill

"As the House barrels toward a vote on climate and energy legislation, a group headed by a prominent Republican is launching a national campaign aimed at scuttling the bill.

American Solutions for Winning the Future -- which is chaired by its founder, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich -- will launch a television advertising campaign tomorrow that argues Congress will make the country's economic conditions "dramatically worse" if it passes the climate bill."
