Gingrich plans major speeches, including one on space


Posted by

(CNN) – Riding the momentum of his South Carolina win on Saturday, Newt Gingrich said Sunday he planned a week of big speeches offering “big solutions for a big country.”

“I’ll be at the space coast in Florida this week giving a speech — a visionary speech — on the United States going back into space in the John F. Kennedy tradition,” the former House Speaker said on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal.”

He said the days leading to Florida’s Jan. 31 primary would include other speeches on health care, housing, the economy, Cuba and Latin America.

“I hope really once a day to do something very positive and clear about positive ways of moving forward as a country to get back on the right track,” Gingrich said.

Also taking to podiums this week will be President Barack Obama and Gingrich’s main rival for the GOP nomination, Mitt Romney. The former Massachusetts governor announced plans for both a “prebuttal” and rebuttal to the president’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
