Newt Gingrich say's he's running his campaign on people power...Doesn't he mean, PERSON POWER?

Newt Gingrich had the nerve to question Mitt Romney's many financial backers by stating that He (Gingrich) was running a people's campaign.
Newt Gingrich arrived 55 minutes late to a sparsely attended event in Orlando, then dropped a planned town hall format after less than 7 minutes of remarks to mingle and pose for pictures.

“My competitor on Tuesday has money power,” Gingrich said, explaining why he was changing the format of the event.

“There’s no question he can raise more money from Wall Street than I can. And he has big institutions pouring money in here. What I want to do is have people power. So I want to chat with each one of you personally.and ask each of you to go out on Facebook and on You tube and on Twitter and email, even by telephone and talk to people face to face.” (emphasis mine)
When I read that statement, I went into a laughing convulsion. I think what Newt probably meant to say was that his campaign was based on "Person Power", in the form of Sheldon Adelson, not people power.

Do we have any clue do his campaigns financial situation? Is Adelson the only contributor to the Gingrich Super PAC?

I read that the Gingrich campaign was $500,000 in debt ubtil Adelson contributes a 2nd $5 mil to the Gingrich campaign.

Adelson is the only resource keeping Gingrich from the level of Santorum.

Anonymous, Adelson can only contribute 2500 maximum to Gingrich's campaign. The 10,000,000 that Adelson has contributed was to the SuperPAC that is backing Gingrich. If Gingrich is, in fact, 500k in debt he can't get bailed out by Adelson.
