Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich spent Tuesday morning, Feb. 14, having breakfast with supporters at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club as part of a three-day fundraising swing through California.

Between 40 and 45 people attended the breakfast, which was closed to the public and news media.  According to a New York Times report, attendees paid $500 per plate, or $1,000 to have their photo taken with the former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, who is running for the Republican presidential nomination against former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, former U.S. senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Texas congressman Ron Paul.
