Gingrich Will Visit Towne Lake Today
The free "Get Out the Vote" rally for the Republican presidential candidate will begin at 11:30 a.m. at the GOP headquarters on Towne Lake Parkway.
Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich will stop in Towne Lake on his Georgia tour this morning.
The former U.S. speaker of the House and Georgia congressman will address Cherokee County residents at the grand opening of the GOP headquarters at 1428 Towne Lake Pkwy.
Gov. Nathan Deal, Rep. Sean Jerguson (R-Holly Springs), Rep. Charlice Byrd (R-Woodstock), Rep. Rick Jasperse (R-Jasper) and Sen. Barry Loudermilk will be among the special guests at the free "Get Out the Vote" rally, scheduled from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Gingrich will make an appearance at a Cobb Chamber of Commerce breakfast event at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre before heading to Cherokee County. Kennesaw Patch said the sold-out event is expected to draw a crowd of more than 500 guests.
Hermain Cain accompained Gingrich during intial stops in Forsyth, Gwinnett and Cobb counties on Feb. 18.
A meeting to choose precinct delegates for the Forsyth County Republican convention turned into a Gingrich rally at South Forsyth High School that day. Cain fired up the crowd by saying Gingrich’s economic plan is the closest thing left in the campaign to his own 9-9-9 tax plan, according to Marietta Patch. Gingrich won support with his call for tapping American oil reserves to drive the price of gasoline down to $2.50 a gallon.
At Collins Hill High School in Suwanee, Gingrich said Barack Obama puts America at risk with his bigotry and dishonesty and said he is “the most dangerous president in modern American history.”
Gingrich also visited First Redeemer in Cumming on Sunday and spoke to more than 3,000 worshippers during the morning service. He discussed an America and Christians under assault by two separate factions, according to Cumming Patch.
Just Wednesday morning, Gingrich was joined by Deal, who has endorsed the former congressman, for a rally at the state Capitol.
"We must have your support if we're going to move forward in this presidential campaign," Gingrich said during Buckhead Patch's live coverage.
Gingrich said he wants to emphasize two core messages to his supporters.
"We need a national dialogue about our policies in the Middle East," he said. "The outrageous behavior of the president in apologizing to Afghanistan when young Americans were dying is inexcusable. We also need a national energy policy that uses all of America's resources. When I left the U.S. House of Representatives, it was the last time we had a balanced budget."
Georgia’s GOP presidential primary will be Tuesday, and early voting continues today and Friday.
