On occasion you’ll see a presidential candidate have a beer with the folks. That’s a beer. Not two. But Newt Gingrich had at least two with reporters he spoke with while campaigning in South Carolina on Tuesday.
From the Washington Post:
“I’m happy,” he declared to a couple of reporters while sipping a Guinness at a small table. “I only have one opponent — the guy I’m going to beat next November.”
Gingrich got physical when it came time for another:
As his second Guinness arrived, an aide jokingly reached for it, but Gingrich slapped his hand away.
“Let’s not be greedy,” he said, and then turned back to the reporters. “It’s like fighting with bear cubs all around. They all want the salmon.”
