ATLANTA - Newt Gingrich will address Georgia Republicans at their annual convention in May.
The former U.S. House speaker is set to speak the convention's victory dinner May 13 in Macon.
Gingrich has been shoring up support in his old home state as he readies for a possible White House bid. He's raising money as he tests the water and expects to announce a decision in early May.
If he does run, Gingrich has the backing of Georgia's current and former chief executives. Gov. Nathan Deal and former Gov. Sonny Perdue have both said they'll support the 10-term congressman.
