Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich is planning a stop in northern Idaho in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. Campaign officials say Gingrich will hold a town hall meeting in Coeur d'Alene Thursday.

The event follows a $1,000 per plate fundraising lunch hosted by supporters in the nearby town of Harrison. Gingrich is the last of the four Republican hopefuls to visit Idaho. Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum each made stops across the state last week. The candidates are courting Idaho voters in the run-up to the GOP's caucuses on March 6.
