Gingrich May Get In Race

Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich says he may get in the presidential race if he can raise $30 million by mid-October.

"As a middle-class person, I can’t compete with Governor Romney, who can write a personal check for a hundred million dollars. But if there is a big enough citizen movement that wants to have somebody who could debate Senator Clinton next year and somebody who could outline and articulate our values, then I think we’d be compelled to run," Gingrich told Matt Lewis of Townhall.com.

There will be more details from Gingrich told to the news media on Monday according to Gingrich advisor J. Randolph Evans.

I just now got this from a Yahoo News Alert:

WASHINGTON (AP) A spokesman for Newt Gingrich says the former House speaker will not seek the Republican nomination for president in 2008.

It's great to see you actively blogging again, incidentally. :-)
