When asked about his viability as a candidate, Newt Gingrich points to last week's "Eastern Iowa Picnic and Rally to Meet the Next President".
“I think of the people who have been active, if you go and look at the press reports of the Johnson County picnic Friday night -- where every single reporter from Fox News to the Des Moines Register to the local papers to MSNBC – every one of them said that with Pawlenty and two other candidates there that I clearly dominated the three of them, and I clearly was the winner of that particular event."
The other two candidates were Rick Santorum and Thad McCotter.
Comes near the end...
