Gingrich Campaign $600,000 In Debt
A portion of that amount was $471,000 to InfoCision, a telemarketing firm that specializes in fundraising for conservative political, Christian and nonprofit groups, the Post reported. The bill was paid in full by the end of January.
The campaign also owed approximately half a million dollars to Moby Dick Airlines for charter flights for Gingrich and his top aides to campaign stops across the country.
According to the Post, the candidate’s company Gingrich Productions also received $67,000 for “web-hosting” and “e-mail hosting.” Gingrich himself also received $47,000 for a political donor list and $206,000 for assorted travel and food expenses reimbursements that he covered for himself and his staff.
Gingrich campaign adviser R.C. Hammond told the Post that the campaign repaid Gingrich for what he spent on campaign-related food, lodging and travel for himself and his staff.
“Gingrich Productions was reimbursed for website and e-mail hosting - no profit was made,” Hammond said.
When asked about the debt at a Saturday night press conference during which Gingrich said he is not dropping out of the race, he said he didn't know where the report came from.
"It doesn't fit our internal numbers," he said.
