Former U.S. House speaker Newt Gingrich will hold his first major fund-raiser in Georgia next Wednesday, in the name of his 2012 presidential exploratory committee.
Headlining the event will be Gov. Nathan Deal, former Gov. Sonny Perdue, and former governor and U.S. Sen. Zell Miller – making a rare personal appearance. Howard “Bo” Callaway, the first modern Republican to win a plurality in a Georgia race for governor, leads the “B” side of the invitation — which you can see here.
A stiff drink and a photo with Gingrich will cost you $2,500. For $1,000, you still get the drink – at the Intercontinental Hotel in Buckhead.
Leigh Ann Gillis, who raised money for both Perdue and 2008 GOP presidential nominee John McCain, is standing by to take your check.
