Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will become the fifth Republican presidential hopeful to visit Donald Trump, according to CNN
Gingrich, who has been surging in the polls and sparring head-on with front-runner Mitt Romney, will meet the business mogul Monday at the Trump Tower in New York.
“I can confirm that Mr. Trump and Mr. Gingrich are meeting on Monday,” spokesman Michael Cohen told CNN. “I suspect, like the other Republican candidates, Newt will seek Mr. Trump’s advice and endorsement.”
Other GOP presidential candidates who have visited Trump, who considered running for the nomination himself before dropping out in May, include Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, who has met with him four times; Mitt Romney; former businessman Herman Cain; and Texas Gov. Rick Perry, CNN reports.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin also met with Trump a few months before she decided to forgo the 2012 presidential race.
