Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) has confirmed it: He will be rolling out the early stages of a presidential campaign Thursday.
As CNN reports, Gingrich announced on Martha Zoller’s Georgia talk radio show that he will launch a web site later today, NewtExplore2012.com. “Callista and I prepared to see if there are enough folks who want to see if we can get this country back on the right track.”
As the Associated Press reports, Gingrich will make a further announcement in a news conference at the Georgia state Capitol. However, Gingrich spokesman Rick Tyler also told the AP that Gingrich “is entering the exploratory phase” — but this is not a full-fledged exploratory committee, as Gingrich and his wife Callista must tie up various business and non-profit ventures before taking that step.
