Report: Gingrich may run in 2012

Former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich is expected to take a step as early as this week toward a run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012.

WASHINGTON – Former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich is expected to take a step as early as this week toward a run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, a senior Republican official said yesterday. He would become the first prominent Republican to enter into what has been a slow start in the race to decide who will oppose President Obama’s re-election bid.

Others are expected to follow suit in the weeks and months ahead, such as former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty.

Still unclear are the plans of such potential candidates as Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee.
