CONCORD, N.H.—Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had a busy afternoon with his pen -- first signing up to get on New Hampshire's presidential primary ballot and then signing a pledge to cut taxes, spending and the size of government.

Gingrich filed his candidacy papers Tuesday at the secretary of state's office, then became the eighth candidate to sign a pledge being promoted by Tom Thomson, son of former New Hampshire Gov. Mel Thomson.

Gingrich, who just hired his first New Hampshire campaign worker last week, says his campaign is on an upswing and has raised more money this month than it did in the entire last quarter. He says former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney doesn't have a lock on New Hampshire, and that he'll be fully competitive in the state.
