Gingrich Headlines Bolling Kickoff

Anita Kumar

Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich will headline Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling's campaign kickoff gala in Richmond on April 17.

Gingrich, who served as speaker from 1995 to 1999, co-authored the 1994 Contract with America, a detailed plan of action for Congress, and helped end four decades of Democratic majorities in the House.

Bolling will face lawyer Patrick Muldoon for the Republican nomination.

Four Democrats are running: Jon Bowerbank, a businessman from Russell County, Pat Edmonson, a member of the Virginia Beach School Board, Michael Signer, an attorney who worked for former governor Mark R. Warner and former Finance Secretary Jody Wagner.

Re: Newt:

Another man of principle who has recently fallen by the wayside and hopes that our country fails; not only that but his use of "fascism" to describe his opposition's stance is rather abstract, to put it kindly.
