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
It is getting interesting.
Word on the ground and on the airwaves is that Newt’s crowds are dwarfing everybody’s. It has also been noted at FR.
However, Mitt seems to have a slight silent majority, according to most polls. It appears that this will be the first Primary state where, both because of its size and its diversity, turnout will genuinely make a difference. Can we get every panhandle vote? Can we convince enough Santorum backers in Florida to follow their candidate’s example and give up on just Florida, if not on the campaign as a whole, and join forces to beat Romney in the Sunshine State?
Newt needs to close hard, maximize turnout, and finish strong. We need to help anyway we can!
Do we have any boots on the ground who can tell us about the crowds yesterday and today? Where are the TEa Partiers down there?
Has the Tea Party Express come out for Newt? Is he on this bus tour? I thought he was.
The fact that Newt Gingrich -- a presidential candidate -- will attend this rally says all we need to know about him.
Turnout is CRUCIAL in Florida. Remember, a lot of people had already voted by mail before Gingrich became a factor.
There is a photo of Newt pouring tea into the Potomac back in the 80’s for some event ... wish I knew how to post pics on ehre.
Newt is the original . . .
I believe the moderator, Mat Staver (Liberty Council, has endorsed Newt!
We picked Newt here in South Carolina so he gets the nomination.
This is all just fliff fluff—UNLESS Obama resigns in disgrace and appoints Sarah Palin as his successor.
But then Obama would have to cease being an evil Marxist demon sent by Lucifer to savage America—which ain't likely I reckon.
I know Santorum verbally is not giving up on FL, but by leaving FL, he is. Let’s hope the Santorum supporters realize that stopping Mitt is crucial and that they will vote Gingrich, rather than voting ineffectively for Santorum. Probably won’t happen, but one can always hope and pray. Also, the Dems keep saying the Tea Party is on the decline or dead ..... the FL TP needs to shove that meme back in the Dems/GOP-e’s faces and get the vote out for Newt.
Now—at this late in the game—with all the negatives coming out to slaughter Newt. His only hope, our only hope, is the Tea Party. The MSM will not cover these events or will paint them as a meeting of racists and moonshiners drunk and staggering about. We need our people to cover the event and let us know that is happening so we can keep alive the flame of hope. Would that we had our own media—The Tea Party News.
Obama would never appoint Sarah Palin—Maybe Hillary Clinton.
You know, here’s the link to the article, in which it also states Romney predicted the Tea Party would turn on Newt. Pretty amusing.
The pic is from 1994!
(promise to read the posting tutorial later).
Whoa. Sorry — Newt is throwing tea into the Chatahoochee in Georgia — not the Potomac! lol.
What Mitt has is more than a silent majority - he has a GOP establishment machine behind him. All the more reason I pray Newt neuters Willard in FL!
The fact that Newt Gingrich — a presidential candidate — will attend this rally says all we need to know about him.”
Did you see Greta interview him on the bus? She asked if he was anti-establishment. With no hesitation at all, he said firmly, “YES.”
