KENNESAW, Ga. -- The health of Hillary Clinton was at center stage in Kennesaw Monday when former congressman Newt Gingrich stumped on behalf of Donald Trump. Like Trump, Gingrich played down her health issues – while also saying she has to answer the questions raised over her diagnosis of pneumonia over the weekend.
Before Trump announced running mate Mike Pence, Gringrich was on his short list for vice president. State GOP leaders said the former House Speaker could help Trump win Georgia. Although Gingrich moved out of the state more than a decade ago — his Georgia fan base is still devout. When Gingrich ran for president four years ago, he won the Georgia GOP primary but lost the nomination.
