Newt Gingrich's New Hampshire Team Releases 'A Merry Christmas Video from NewtHampshire'

Newt Gingrich's campaign team in Iowa recently got into the holiday spirit, releasing "A Merry Christmas Video from NewtHampshire" featuring political lyrics sung to the tune of an old Christmas carol.

The video, posted December 23, features the Republican presidential hopeful's New Hampshire staffers decked out in Santa hats, singing to the tune of "Deck the Halls." While the group sings of Newt's solutions stopping Obama's "trauma," one staffer dons an elf outfit and runs around Gingrich's New Hampshire office.

With the New Hampshire primary just weeks away, the GOP candidates are boosting their efforts in the state. Romney recently jabbed Gingrich during a campaign stop in the Granite State, criticizing him for changing his views on the individual mandate ahead of the 2012 election.

After failing to qualify for the Virginia Republican primary, it seems Gingrich's campaign will be especially reliant on the outcome of the New Hampshire primary.
