Aloha Newt Gingrich: Candidate Headed for Hollywood, Hawaii

ABC News' (@arlettesaenz) reports:

Where’s Newt Gingrich headed next on the campaign trail?  Not Iowa or South Carolina like his rivals for the Republican nomination.

Instead of those states, which play an important early role in the primary process, Gingrich has campaign stops scheduled in Hollywood and Hawaii.

Critics have questioned Gingrich’s seriousness as a candidate after he vacationed this Spring in Greece and several of his top campaign aides  quit en masse.

This week, the presidential candidate and his wife, Callista, screen documentaries in two California towns, one of which is pegged as part of a series of meetings with leaders from Thai, Korean and Chinese community leaders.

On Saturday, Gingrich meets with the Maui GOP in Wailuku, Hawaii, and on Monday, he stops by a school in Makawao.

The Gingrich campaign said the candidate would visit New Hampshire on Aug. 25 but did not offer further details.
