Gingrich comes to Richmond to talk health care
Newt Gingrich, the Former Speaker of the House and potential candidate for President in 2012, will be in Richmond on Friday to headline a forum on health care with Governor Bob McDonnell.
Gingrich has become a prominent voice in the conservative movement in the United States, a movement with plenty of momentum, but no clear leader. Among the many ways he has set himself apart is his opposition to the Obama Health Care plan. Gingrich has held forums, similar to the one he is holding in Richmond, all over the country through his think tank American Solutions.
Friday’s event, which will be held at the brand new MeadWest Vaco facility along the James River, is called “Creating a 21st Century Intelligent Health System in Virginia”. It will include remarks from Gingrich, and then a forum with Virginia’s Secretary of Health and Human Resources Dr. Bill Hazel. Governor McDonnell will join a panel discussion on the topic.
Gingrich has plans to head to Iowa next week and the Presidential buzz constantly follows his frequent TV and radio talk show appearances. During his last trip to Central Virginia, (he spoke at Randolph Macon in Ashland). I asked him if he planned to run for president.
Here is his response:
We’ll have coverage of Friday’s event on NBc12-TV and here on Decision Virginia.
