Even Bob Dole acknowledged the Vice-Presidential debate resembled a Fraternity picnic more than a meeting of the minds.

But House Speaker Newt Gingrich took a more agressive approach in a mid-Missouri visit.

K-B-I-A's David Freitas was there.

With a cheering crowd yelling we love Newt, Gingrich did not share the same sentiment for the president in a Jefferson City fund raiser.

While Gingrich echoed many Dole campaign themes, he did what Dole has not done... attack the President by focusing on the latest scandle... a series of accusations that suggest Clinton took foreign campaign donations.

Gingrich in particular railed against the President's drug policy.
