Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich spoke to a crowd of about 150 to 200 people in West Price Hill on Tuesday.
Afterward, he shook a few hands and then headed for his campaign bus.

Even so, the speech made by Gingrich Tuesday was mostly a pep rally and not as much a policy speech. Though it did have a couple of moments that stood out.

Ben has the Reality Check you won't seen anywhere else.
