Did Gingrich Film Goodbye Video Before Delaware?
Gingrich's campaign released another video on April 24 about protection of marriage with the exact same camera angle, outfit and backdrop as the previous day's video about the same topic.
The April 23 video asking North Carolina voters -- who vote in their GOP primary on May 8 -- to protect traditional marriage was released a day before the news broke that Gingrich would suspend his effort to grab the Republican presidential nomination. The April 24 video appears to have been released ahead of the late April 24 report that he would leave. This came as Gingrich was losing by a landslide to Romney in all of the primaries held that night.
The most obvious difference, aside from the camera angle, is that a small wooden sign sits on top of the bookshelf imprinted in gold with "SPEAKER NEWT GINGRICH" in all capital letters, along with two other indistinguishable boxes of some kind.
The campaign hasn't responded to an e-mail request for comment.
