Newt Gingrich To Headline N.J. GOP Fundraiser

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will be in New Jersey later this month to raise money for state and local Republicans. GOP State Committee Chairman Jay Webber confirmed today that Gingrich will headline a July 24 event at the home of Sal and Lisa LoBiondo, a Morris County couple who are active in Republican politics. Invitees to the private fundraiser will pay $1,000 each for a cocktail reception, $5,000 a plate for dinner. It's not known how many people will attend. Webber called Gingrich "an interesting figure who has a lot of insights on current events." Gingrich's tenure as House speaker was marked by his opposition to the policies of Democratic President Bill Clinton. AP
