Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich will be in Everett Friday night to complete a two-day swing through Washington before the upcoming Republican Party caucuses.
Gingrich, a former House Speaker, is also scheduled to appear at events in Kennewick and Spokane on Thursday and at several locations in the Puget Sound region on Friday, according to Lew Moore, the campaign’s caucus director in Washington.
His visit comes days after two other Republican presidential candidates traveled through Washington to drum up support in advance of the March 3 caucuses.
Last week, Rick Santorum spoke to backers in Olympia and Tacoma while Ron Paul held rallies in Vancouver and Spokane.
Mitt Romney is scheduled to be in Washington on March 1.
