COEUR DALENE GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich followed the campaign trail to the Inland Northwest Thursday to address voters.
Voters are just one week away from picking who they want as a Republican presidential candidate.
Gingrich talked about hot topics in front of hundreds of people in North Idaho. He focused on gas prices, national security, and the differences between Democrats and Republicans.
He said the main goal is for the GOP party to beat President Barack Obama in the next election.
Gingrich is scheduled to head to Western Washington Friday to meet with supporters in Olympia.
My continual prayer, all through the day.

It is upsetting that the voters stampede for a candidate they know almost nothing about, on the assumption that they are what they say they are. And later learn the true facts about their nature and stampede for the next candidate who they know nothing about.
Hopefully this is what will change and we can get behind the obvious master Government executive and proven Conservative leader that we have had right in front of us the whole time, Newt Gingrich!
He’s picking pockets of conservatives and natural allies and getting interviews. He’s giving important talks and voters are hearing from Newt what Americans want their president to do and that is getting press and campaign buzz.
I heard Bill Bennett say on his radio show a week ago that after two terms of the Reagan administration, they had really only just begun to comprehend and get control over the bureaucracy. Reforming government is BIG job and a BIG challenge. We cannot afford to hire someone for this job who doesn’t have the intelligence to comprehend the complexity of the government, the experience of working with it, the creativity to come up with ideas for fixing things and the persuasive ability to get enough people on his side to make the big changes that are needed.
Don’t be discouraged if Newt doesn’t score big in Michigan and Arizona. Strategically, those aren’t the states to go after right now. Arizona is winner-take-all, so it doesn’t make sense for him to gamble on being back in the #1 spot by Tuesday. Likewise in Michigan, he probably doesn’t want to risk drawing votes away from Santorum while Santorum is still ahead of Romney. I think Newt’s campaign is all based around the March 6th Super Tuesday states right now.
i wonder if he went to Spokane after Coeur D’Alene
45 min ride
YES! He did!
do you miss WA?
I agree. Newt and the other front runners really need to start calling this “The Obama Debt.” Just hang the whole thing around his neck and make him defend himself.
He can’t, of course.
I voted for Gingrich here in Tennessee today. I really think he’s our best bet head-to-head with Obama.
I’d say Newt has a decent shot in Idaho. The libertarian streak of the state is evident, and it’s a bit more socially conservative than the surrounding states minus Utah.
