Newt Gingrich told Channel 4 News Thursday that he plans to visit Nashville in the next few weeks but did not give an exact date.
Gingrich said when he visits, he plans to announce several big endorsements from local politicians. Former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson has already endorsed the former Speaker of the House.
The GOP candidate told Channel 4 reporter Caroline Moses that he has already raised a substantial amount of money in Tennessee and has several big conservative donors in the state.
Gingrich said he believes he has a good chance of winning the state's March 6 primary due to his pro-life, pro-gun and pro-jobs initiatives.
