COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A Baker High School grad who made an attempt at becoming the next president will be returning to his former hometown.

His appearance is part of a Victory Dinner hosted by the Georgia republican party during the 2012 state convention.

Gingrich ended his presidential bid earlier this month after several disappointing primary finishes.
