article imageGingrich Considers Himself a GOP Prospect

By Michael Bearak     Jan 14, 2010 in Politics
Newt Gingrich said, while speaking in Cary North Carolina, that he sees himself as a top GOP Prospect for the 2012 election.
North Carolina was won by the Democrats in 2008 for the first time in three decades and that was where former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich declared that he sees himself as one of the top GOP candidates for the 2012 presidential election. He said he sees himself amongst seven or eight very viable candidates to become President.
Gingrich gave a nod to former Governors Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, and Tim Pawlenty as other candidates. He also felt that current Governors Bobby Jindal, Mitch Daniels, Haley Barbour, and Rick Perry would also make strong candidates. The point that Gingrich wanted to make was that Republicans will have choices in the next election.
Gingrich was key in the Republican's sweep of Congress in 1994. He also highly emphasised the idea of a "Contract for America." In conclusion he said that at the start of next year he and his wife will sit down and decide if he will make a run at the Presidency.
