Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich had another "deer in the headlights" moment Wednesday.

An ABC News producer asked Gingrich to hold up one of his campaign T-shirts for the camera and he probably now wishes he hadn't followed her instructions.

"A lot of what you're talking about is about taking America back to America," the ABC News producer explained. "We asked for T-shirts to be sent to us and they were made in America. I just picked up that one and it was made in El Salvador."

"Uh-huh," a stunned Gingrich replied.

"It was a big thing when we talked to your campaign about how you wanted things to be made in America," the producer continued. "Do you have plans to change things?"

"I'll have to ask the folks who ordered this," Gingrich said while still holding the T-shirt. "I didn't order it and I don't do it."

"One of the challenges with a volunteer campaign is lots of volunteers do lots of different things."
