DULUTH: Gingrich to address Ga. GOP forum

DULUTH, Ga. -- Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is set to speak at a Republican presidential forum in Gwinnett County.

The former House Speaker will address the 7th congressional district GOP in Duluth Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Seventh District GOP Chairman Jason Thompson said the open, town hall-style format will provide Georgians "an up-close and personal opportunity to meet and hear candidates in person, instead of just on television."

Thompson said the group has invited all Republican primary presidential candidates to come for individual sessions before the group and is hopeful more will choose to attend.

Gingrich, a former congressman from Georgia, is trailing frontrunners Mitt Romney, Herman Cain and Rick Perry in public opinion polls.

New law after Georgia woman killed serving peace corps

WASHINGTON (AP) - Congress has responded to complaints that the Peace Corps hasn't done enough to protect its volunteers from sexual assaults with legislation requiring the agency to better train participants in how to avoid such attacks.

The House voted 406-0 Tuesday to pass the bill and send it to President Barack Obama for his signature. The Senate passed it by voice vote in September.

The measure provides whistleblower protections for volunteers who report threatening activities and requires the Peace Corps to develop sexual assault risk-reduction and response training. The agency must also establish a victim's support office.
