ST. PETE BEACH, Fla. — Professor Newt is heading to Tampa to school the delegates at the Republican National Convention.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a onetime college professor, plans to lead daily two-hour seminars called “Newt U” every day of the convention on rotating campuses in the region, the RNC announced Sunday. It’s a reprise of the role — an academic and historian — that Gingrich relished playing on the campaign trail during his unsuccessful GOP primary bid.
Each two-hour seminar is linked to that day’s convention theme and features speakers, including Wisc. Gov. Scott Walker, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and, of course, wife Callista.
The full schedule:
Monday, Aug. 27
"We Can Do Better" - Jobs, Growth and Protecting Medicare
Tuesday, Aug. 28
"We Built it" - Small Businesses and Civil Society Build America
Wednesday, Aug. 29
