Newt Gingrich To Shore Up Primary Vote In Hawaii

August 17, 2011 10:31 am

It’s a critical month in the Republican primaries, as Rick Perry reshuffles the race, the Ames Straw Poll results set in, and candidates prepare for a brutal stretch of debates in September. So where will Newt Gingrich soon spend a three-day stretch campaigning?

That would be sunny Hawaii, where he’s scheduled for a meeting with the Maui GOP on Saturday followed by a visit to an elementary school in Makawao on Sunday to teach about the founding fathers.

Politico wryly notes that while the trip is ostensibly for fundraising, it just happens to coincide with Newt and Callista Gingrich’s wedding anniversary.

Newt isn’t shipping out from Iowa or New Hampshire, either — Politico notes that Gingrich will be in California on Friday to screen one of Newt Inc.’s movies.
