GOP candidate Newt Gingrich spoke to a crowd of about 500 people today at the Red Lion Columbia Center during a campaign stop in Tri Cities.

During his stop he emphasized the weakness of President Obama on foreign policy, especially the Middle East.  Gingrich also said, via executive order, if elected he would repeal 40% of 'Obama's Government' his first day in office.  He also promised $2.50 a gallon gas, which he said was closer to historical levels.   Gingrich then headed to Spokane and Cour D' Alene for more stops in the Pacific NW.
