Gingrich coming to Iowa to train candidates

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will be in Iowa on Monday to provide a training session for GOP candidates.  He’ll be with Joe Gaylord, an advisor who recorded the “Aggressive August” tapes in 1994.  As you may recall, the GOP won majority control of the US House in November of 1994.  Details below, from American Solutions press secretary R.C. Hammond:

Newt Gingrich and American Solutions CEO Joe Gaylord will be in Des Moines, IA on Monday, July 12th working with the Republican Party of Iowa, Polk County Republican Party, and the House Majority Fund to lead candidate workshops.  Newt Gingrich will open the workshop at 9 a.m. CT at the Marriott Hotel located at 700 Grand Avenue in Des Moines.

The instruction is based on Joe Gaylord’s new campaign manual: Campaign Solutions.  This is not your average campaign book—it has no gossip, no insider stories, and no behind the scenes looks.  But we believe it will be the most helpful book for any candidate running for office in 2010. 

Campaign Solutions has advice for candidates at all levels, from local to Congressional, and for everyone in the campaign, from the candidate to the press secretary.  Each chapter of Campaign Solutions starts with how-to advice, and ends with what-not-to-do warnings and how-did-you-do scorecards.

American Solutions is Newt Gingrich’s citizen action network which has over 1.5 Million members. Our goal is to promote the next generation of solutions that will ensure that the United States remains the safest, freest, and most prosperous country in the world.

The stop in Iowa is part of American Solutions efforts to help prepare candidates at all levels to run and win in 2010. 

• American Solutions launched an online information portal called the Solutions Academy which breaks down policy problems and presents solutions lawmakers can utilize to create jobs, improve education and expand American energy.
• In addition to the workshop training, Gingrich and Gaylord are distributing a weekly podcast to candidates similar to the
GOPAC education tapes that helped prepare a generation of GOP candidates for the campaign trail.
