Newt Gingrich has released a 30-second ad that will air on television in Iowa starting on Wednesday. The ad focuses on his jobs plan and reminds Iowa Republicans of Gingrich's strong debate performances this past fall. Watch the video below:

Will the ad be enough to turn the tide for Gingrich in the Hawkeye State by the January 3 caucuses? The former House speaker has fallen from a high point of 31 percent in the RealClearPolitics poll average to 15 percent and third place in the state, behind Ron Paul and Mitt Romney.
