August 12, 2011--Newt and Callista Gingrich work the grill at the Pork Producers Tent.   Gingrich actually visited the Fairgrounds on August 10, 11 and 12.  On August 10, before the Fair opened, he appeared on the Simon Conway show from WHO's Crystal Studio.  (He and Callista also marched in the State Fair parade downtown that evening).  On August 11, the day of the debate, he brought family.  C-SPAN showed a 12:36 segment of him and Callista walking around the Fair.  They arrived at the Pork Producers to find a long line.  "I was going to get a pork chop on a stick, but I don't think so," Gingrich said.  The clip closes with Gingrich stating, "We prefer not to decide what to do about lunch on C-SPAN." +  On August 12 he appeared on the Des Moines Register Soapbox.
