At the end of last week, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was in Manchester, New Hampshire to speak to a group of voters while he weighs a run for president in 2012. Longtime ONE volunteers Tom Leary and Mike Castaldo attended the event and were able to share a moment with the former speaker.

Tom chatted with Newt about the 2011 ONE Power Summit he just attended in Washington, D.C., and thanked the former Speaker for speaking at the ONE Summit a couple of years ago. Newt immediately recognized ONE, and discussed the importance of saving lives in poor countries around the world.
Newt thanked them for all the hard work they are doing on behalf of the world’s poorest and even said with regard to ONE’s volunteers, “You have such a great presence all over the place!” So keep up the great work — it’s being noticed!
