Gingrich, Campaigning in Iowa, Says GOP Taking Second Look at Him

Monday, 14 Nov 2011 02:54 PM


WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Newt Gingrich is conceding that he made mistakes early in his campaign for the Republican nomination for president, but says his debate performances are leading voters to take another look at him.

The former House speaker has risen in national polls in the past week as former businessman Herman Cain has slipped. A new CNN poll Monday shows Gingrich almost even with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Cain is battling allegations of sexual harassment against women.

Gingrich spoke in Iowa at a Des Moines-area insurance company.

He's spending a few days in the state this week and expects to name an Iowa campaign team and open offices. He hasn't had either since a national and Iowa staff revolt last June.

The state's leadoff caucuses are Jan. 3.
