Newt Gingrich put his love of space exploration into action on Super Tuesday by going to Space Camp.

“Of all the places we’ve held rallies, this may be the most amazing, just to stand here,” Gingrich said, surveying the space rocket above him. “I invite Saturday Night Live to come here to Huntsville and film their skits.”

“America has a destiny in space,” Gingrich declared, drawing applause from the 600-person crowd.
