Gingrich to make Iowa stop

(CNN) - Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich continues the tour of key presidential primary states ahead of his likely campaign for the Oval Office, set to court ethanol proponents in Des Moines at the end of January.

Gingrich, who previously visited the key caucus state in September and November, will address the Iowa Renewable Fuel Association's annual summit, according to Gingrich spokesman Rick Tyler. The event will be open to the media.

Gingrich's appearance will come shortly after another potential 2012 candidate, Rep. Michele Bachmann, addresses a tax reform group in the Hawkeye State's capital city. Gingrich's visit will also precede that of former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who has three separate stops planned in Iowa at the end of the month.

The former House Speaker has previously said he will make a final decision about a presidential bid this spring.

    I really hope that Newt Gingrich don't really think that America would elected him to be President of The United States. If Newt really think he has a shot a the Presidency than this country is in trouble. When will these has been politican realize that they have no "JUICE". I think it would be best if Newt just stay home, where ever that is. President I think not, I know not.

    Gingrich is certainly more civil than Michele Bachmann and that half wit Palin.

    Newt, the American public isn't interested in your stale, self-righteous rhetoric. Your personal life reflects values we don't care for.

    His delusion continues. His kind is now all but obsolete in lieu of recent happenings.
