Two days after officially becoming a presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich delivered his first campaign speech Friday to the Georgia Republican Party convention in Macon.
During his address, Gingrich covered issues ranging from foreign policy and food stamps to creating jobs and eliminating the inheritance or death tax.
Gingrich, who served four years as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, served 20 years on Capitol Hill as a member of the Georgia congressional delegation.
A long-time supporter of tax cuts to create jobs, Gingrich reiterated that position while attacking what he sees as President Barack Obama's position on job creation.
"President Obama believes in an America where we make the rich poor in order to get equality by leveling down," Gingrich said. "I believe in an America where we make the poor rich, so we can get equality by bringing everybody up. It's a fundamental difference."
