Gingrich lets movie do talking in Minnesota appearance

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich let his movie on religion in American government
do the talking at a gathering of Minnesota social conservatives.

Gingrich interrupted a campaign swing of Iowa on Tuesday for a series of events sponsored by the Minnesota Family
Council, including a book signing and screening of a movie he produced, “Rediscovering God in America.”

The former House speaker spoke for about 90 seconds — never mentioning his presidential bid — before airing the
film he helps narrate. It stresses references to God and religion in founding documents and monuments throughout

Gingrich spent much of the screening in a hotel lobby, a cell phone to his ear. Gingrich was due to give a dinner
speech that organizers closed to news media.

Gingrich is scheduled to make a stop at Drugan’s in Holmen Wednesday night.
