At the 2010 National Rifle Association in Charlotte, North Carolina, Mr. and Mrs. Gingrich posed for a picture with camouflage clad classic rocker and weapons enthusiast Ted Nugent. Hopefully they managed to avoid catching a nasty case of "Cat Scratch Fever" from the encounter.
Callista doesn't do all her traveling with Newt. She also enjoys an annual "girls weekend" with her friends. In 2010, Callista's "girls weekend" included a Segway tour of the National Mall in DC.
Callista's Segway journey through our nation's Capitol also included a stop in front of the White House.

Last August Newt and Callista visited the Iowa State Fair, which boasts more than 50 varieties of food-on-a-stick. Newt and Callista opted for the hardboiled egg-on-a-stick. Yum!
Newt knows how to unwind when he's on the campaign trail. Here's a shot of the candidate enjoying a piece of pizza during a campaign stop in Decorah, Iowa last December.

Newt Gingrich has made his mark on this presidential race with his “big ideas” and his desire to have three hour marathon debate with anyone who will take him on. With his victory in this week’s Georgia primary and polls showing him leading in Alabama and Mississippi, Mr. Gingrich is preparing to make a “last stand” in the race for the Republican nomination although he’s well behind Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in the delegate count. Since it’s probably Mr. Gingrich’s last hurrah and, well, since it’s Friday afternoon, we decided it would be a good time to release a treasure trove of odd Gingrich family photos we found deep in the recesses of Facebook that give a very special, behind-the-scenes look at the candidate and his third wife, Callista. Check out our slideshow to see Newt as you’ve never seen him before; having his makeup done, hanging out at Auschwitz, going on safari, hobnobbing with classic rock stars, eating egg-on-a-stick and communing with our founding fathers.
