Newt Gingrich in Short Pump this week

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - For the third time in about two weeks, one of the Republican candidates for president will be in Richmond to raise money.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will host a fundraiser at a hotel in Short Pump Thursday morning.

Gingrich had been riding high in the polls, but a recent round of negative ads targeting him has hurt his front runner status.

Governor McDonnell is expected to drop by the event.
