Gingrich To Speak At Ohio Dinner

Feb 29, 2012

An Ohio congressman says former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will speak at a Saturday evening dinner that also features fellow GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum.

Republican Rep. Bob Latta says some 750 people are expected at the sold-out March 3 Lincoln-Reagan Day dinner for his 5th House District. It's at Bowling Green State University's student union.

Latta's office said all GOP candidates have been invited, while Santorum had accepted earlier.

Anti-tax-hikes activist Grover Norquist is also scheduled to speak.

Gingrich is trying to spark a comeback with strong showings in Georgia and neighboring Tennessee in the 10-state "Super Tuesday" next week. He made a four-city swing through Ohio in early February, challenging to pick up delegates in what's expected to be a key showdown state for Santorum and Mitt Romney.
