Newt Gingrich addresses Florida’s Republican National Convention delegates Thursday morning at the Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor.

TAMPA — Former Speaker of House Newt Gingrich and his wife Callista will appear at the final session of the Republican National Convention to make remarks about former President Ronald Reagan in connection with a short film about Reagan's legacy that will be shown to delegates, convention organizers said Thursday morning.

The appearance will give Gingrich, a one-time contender for the GOP nomination, his highest profile role yet during the convention.

During the convention, Gingrich has been leading "Newt University," a series of public policy workshops for delegates, journalists and party activists. Gingrich has led a rotating crop of ad hoc professors holding court on themes ranging from "We Can Do Better" to "We Believe in America" at local hotels.
