Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman both went up with their first television advertisements in New Hampshire on Thursday, just days before the primary on January 10. The Gingrich ad is a continuation of the former House speaker's big push to depict rival Mitt Romney as insufficiently conservative for Republicans, citing in particular the Wall Street Journal's characterization of Romney's economic plan as "timid." Gingrich had previously said he would not run attack ads. Watch it below:

Huntsman's ad, meanwhile, condenses the former Utah governor's standard stump speech on America's "trust deficit" with its leaders in government. Huntsman can be heard saying, "We are getting screwed as Americans," while the text on the screen reads, "ONLY ONE CANDIDATE WILL END THE WAR AND REBUILD AMERICA." Watch it below:
