More on Newt's trip to Winterset, Iowa

Arlette Saenz of ABC News:
Turns out, Gingrich is a huge John Wayne fan. During his visit to the western actor’s birthplace, he bought several items from the gift shop -- including a John Wayne jigsaw puzzle for his sister, a John Wayne beer mug and a poster of the film "Hondo." In August 2009, he and Callista donated $100 for the construction of the John Wayne Birthplace Museum adjacent to his birthplace.

A staffer sent along this photo of the tribute brick engraved with the Gingrich couple’s name to commemorate their donation.


Saenz: "Gingrich’s favorite John Wayne movies is 'Hondo,' followed by 'Sands of Iwo Jima.'"
