Letter to the editor in the Des Moines Register

Here's the full letter:
Thanks again to Kathie Obradovich for a fine Oct. 6 column, “Voters Look Around; Newt Reinvigorated.” Newt Gingrich may not be the best campaigner, but he puts good leadership plans on the table. His 21st Century Contract with America is better than anything coming from the other candidates.

We need Gingrich’s knowledge of what works and what does not and his knowledge of government structure and history. While other candidates are trying to put together plans, Gingrich’s plan is ready to go into effect on day one of his presidency. In the shape we’re in, we cannot afford to wait, and we can’t afford an inexperienced politician fumbling around to get America back on track.

Any further debates need to stay focused on plans and policy, not the playground spats that seem to be the norm. Our need for a knowledgeable leader is urgent and past due. Gingrich is the one to fill that need.

— Jim Daggs, Ackley
The only quibble I have is that Newt and his current team are great at campaigning. It was the people who had only been with Newt for a couple of months -- like, oh, the current campaign manager of the Perry campaign or the top adviser of that campaign -- and then quit Newt 2012 who might not be the greatest at campaigning.
