Gingrich Visiting Middle Tennessee Today

Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich is spending the day in Middle Tennessee ahead of the state’s Super Tuesday primary next week.

The former House Speaker’s agenda includes a healthcare roundtable, a luncheon at a downtown law firm, and a meeting with state Republican lawmakers. Gingrich is also hosting a “town hall rally” outside the state capitol at 3 o’clock, and a thousand-dollars-per-couple fundraiser tonight in Franklin.

Meanwhile officials with Mitt Romney’s campaign in Tennessee have scheduled a “grassroots meeting” tonight to lay out their game plan for the state. Election day is March 6th.
