Will Romney and Gingrich Hog the Spotlight?

Campaigns book simultaneous Saturday events at Tommy’s Ham House in Greenville.

January 20, 2012

Could a Saturday showdown between Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich be in the offing – not at the polls or a debate stage, but at Tommy’s Ham House?

As of Friday evening, both candidates had scheduled events at Tommy’s, a Greenville breakfast restaurant, at the same time on Saturday morning. The event was a late addition to Romney’s daily schedule; Gingrich’s campaign said they booked the establishment first.

"We've had this event on the books. Our schedule went out first," said Gingrich aide Nathan Naidu. "We are confirmed at our event … We would be more than happy to treat Gov. Romney to ham at our event.”


The Romney campaign said the booking is "pure coincidence," and that it was still planning to hold its meet-and-greet with voters at the Ham House.
