NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Supporters of Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich hope a day of campaigning in Nashville will help boost the candidate's prospects in Tennessee.
The former U.S. House speaker kicked off his day with state lawmakers and religious leaders at the legislative office complex on Monday morning.
Gingrich was introduced by Rep. Tony Shipley of Kingsport, who heads his state campaign, and Rep. Terri Lynn Weaver of Lancaster, who began the event with a rendition of "Amazing Grace."
Gingrich gave a lunchtime speech at a monthly gathering of Nashville-area Republicans. The remainder of his schedule included a rally on the steps of the state Capitol and a meeting with state House and Senate Republicans.
