Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) - With one week to go until the Iowa caucuses, two new commercials supporting Newt Gingrich's bid for the GOP presidential nomination are about to hit Hawkeye state airwaves.
A campaign commercial from the Gingrich campaign uses clips from the former House speaker at debates the past few months touting his plans to create jobs. The Gingrich campaign says the 30-second spot will run statewide in Iowa starting Wednesday.
"It starts very simple: lower taxes, less regulation, an American energy plan and actually be positive about people who create jobs – the opposite of the Obama plan," says Gingrich, from the second clip in the ad.
The Gingrich campaign has spent just over $200,000 so far this year on ads in Iowa, a modest amount compared to the amount of cash put into ad buys by the campaigns of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
Meanwhile, an independent group supporting Gingrich's bid for the GOP nomination said it's coming out with a commercial portraying Gingrich as a conservative who is under attack by the Republican establishment. Winning our Future, a super PAC backing Gingrich, said their spot will also run statewide in Iowa starting Wednesday.
"The Republican establishment wants to pick our candidate. When a principled conservative took the lead, they outspent Newt Gingrich 20 to 1, attacking him with falsehoods. Conservatives need someone who's fought for us," the narrator in the ad said, adding "don't let the liberal Republican establishment pick our candidate."
This is the second ad in Iowa by Winning our Future.
