The pitch earned him a standing ovation in South Carolina during a presidential debate on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Gingrich has turned the moment into a TV ad as he works to claw his way to the top of the leader board in the closing days of the campaign for South Carolina’s primary on Saturday.
