Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich made a low-profile visit to South Carolina and paused for pictures and autographs at a fast-food restaurant.

Gingrich spoke to the Renewal Project gathering in Columbia on Tuesday. It's an invitation-only event that had fellow GOP hopeful Michele Bachmann as a speaker on Monday night.

Gingrich said the gatherings are about helping ministers have a better understanding of their role as citizens and the historic contexts of religion and politics. He said it helps them understand what they're up against

The former U.S. House speaker then spent time at a Columbia Chick-Fil-A restaurant talking with diners, autographing cups and standing for snapshots.

Gingrich said he had private meetings planned for the rest of the day before heading to Virginia.
