ATLANTA (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is back in Georgia for a pair of North Georgia church appearances heading into the state’s Super Tuesday primary on March 6.
The former Georgia congressman, who served as U.S. House speaker during the 1990s, is scheduled to attend services at First Redeemer Church in Cumming and Rock Springs Church in Milner.
Gingrich will also swing through several cities on a two-day bus tour that includes stops at the state Capitol and events in Dalton, Rome, Covington and Gainesville on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Gingrich is pinning his hopes for a comeback on the upcoming primaries. His campaign recently announced plans to buy 30-minute blocks of television time in upcoming primary and caucus states for an infomercial on reducing energy prices.
