It looks like Newt Gingrich will be heading to Liberty University later this week to speak and plot strategy with Jerry Falwell Jr. and other “key conservative and evangelical leaders”:
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich will speak at Liberty University during the school’s Wednesday convocation, university officials announced Saturday.
Gingrich will deliver remarks on the theme “Rediscovering God in America” at the school’s Vines Center.
Gingrich also addressed Liberty at the school’s 2007 commencement ceremony, just days after founder Rev. Jerry Falwell’s death.
University officials said Saturday that after the address, Gingrich and Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. will hold a private discussion with a group of “key conservative and evangelical leaders.”
“This is a critical moment in our nation’s history,” Falwell said in a statement.
“Our republic is in jeopardy, and the only way to save it is a return to the principles upon which this nation was founded … Our founders further believed that God and an adherence by the people to Judeo-Christian values were essential to the survival of our republic.”
