Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich to Appear at Tea Party Forum in Winter Park Saturday
Posted on 01/28/2012 6:44:55 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
Newt Gingrich will attend a presidential candidate forum Saturday in Winter Park, site of a tea party rally.
The rally, one of three events by Tea Party Express today, will be held in front of Aloma Church at 1:30 p.m. The church is at 1815 State Road 436.
It is also the location for the First Awake! Presidential Candidate Forum and Q&A. So far, Gingrich is the only candidate who has committed to attend.
Amy Kremer, head of Tea Party Express, said her group's bus tour, which started in Jacksonville Saturday morning, will make its third and final stop of the day in West Palm Beach, at 1302 Parker Ave.
The bus tour continues Sunday. See itinerary here.
This is a great opportunity to inform the American people that there is a free-market solution to get the economy on the right track and that the presidents actions have not accomplished what he has promised, Kremer concluded
On Tuesday I was listening to the Rob Johnson Show WGST-640 (Atlanta) in the morning and in the 7:00 am hour they had a leader from the Tea Party Express here in GA (Maybe it was Amy). She said that after the Dede mess in NY in 2010 Newt Gingrich actively sought out meetings with the Tea Party groups around the country to discuss and gain input. Newt had been very active in seeking Tea Party support over the past year.
As a result, most Tea Party groups are rallying around Newt. Santorum is less an option because the Tea Party is not currently concerned with social issues like Santorum is focused on.
So those who got elected with the help of the Tea Party including Marco Rubio and Nikki Haley risk alienating the Tea Party.
that is GREAT. Thanks for the link. Who knew? He truly was and is a visionary.
If one had any previous reservations between Newt and Romney, the fact that the GOP elite/establishment (and media) is so overwhelmingly backing Newt should be reason enough to RUN FROM ROMNEY !!
Last night’s Greta was very good for Newt. It gave him an opportunity to state the fact that Romney lies in the moment (i.e. at the debates) forgetting that there is a tomorrow where his lies will be exposed.
I honestly believe it was Romney’s operatives that forced Herman Cain out.
I meant overwhelmingly backing ROMNEY (oops).
I live in WP!!! I’ll be there.
PS .... Here's how it turned out! Pic at post 36
ANyone with an I pod that can report in from the site? If so make this a live thread.
Crap. Didn’t work.
Did you see Greta last night on Newt’s bus....Absolutely awsome....links were put on the live thread
Pam Bondi also exposed herself later in the program....she’s a whore...of the political variety,
Mark Levin the other night was just ranting about the orchestrated, vicious Romney/GOP-e attack on Newt. He said one of the things that really bothered him about Romney was that he doesn't learn from his mistakes, as evidenced by Romney's stubborn insistence on defending the indefensible ..... Romneycare. He said Newt had supported a mandate at one time, but has realized his error, admitted it (this is important!) and moved on. It looks like the Tea Party/Dede thing was another learning moment for Newt ... I'm very glad to hear this. BTW - who else won't admit mistakes and clings to ideology/policies that don't work, even in the face of massive evidence to the contrary? Obama. Romney is proving every day he is Obama-lite on most issues.
Try again. Remember to have the brackets at both ends.
Maggie, can you get the picture and post it for all of us to use?
Newt knows where the bodies are buried because he has been in that graveyard and risen out of it. Folks trust that he will shake thing up and knows how to do it.
Thanks!! I had success yesterday, you can see it at the link in my post.
“I know Santorum verbally is not giving up on FL, but by leaving FL, he is.”
This is exactly the case, Miss Magnolia. Newt is quietly rising the Tea Party and grassroots conservatives. Romney’s negative carpetbombing and over the top use of mailers is viewed by the public of a rich, arrogant guy trying to buy the election. Romney has spent a ridiculous amount of money here and it is so blatant that it draws attention to his own weakness. This is so transparent.
When you look at Newt’s campaign stops coming up the next 2 days you see that he is going after the real grassroots conservatives. Rick Santorum’s decision to stand down and leave is a way for him to quietly concede while maintaining his dignity. It’s all there. Early voting ends today. From here on, it’s the weekend to Tuesday to bring out the vote. The polls will show the race tightening by Monday. Look for it! Newt is taking the ground game, and with Rick no longer distracting the conservatives, Newt’s numbers will climb.
And why are they silent? Dumb as@es know they made a mistake and are embarrassed to admit they already voted on ballots.
