ST. JOSEPH — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is proving to be a big draw at Missouri Western State University.
The school said in a news release it has a waiting list of people who want to hear the Georgia Republican speak during a reservations-only dinner Oct. 6. The event sold out two weeks before the reservation deadline.
Gingrich will also appear the following day at a free public event at the St. Joseph school.
His appearances will coincide with the university's annual Convocation on Critical Issues.
