Former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and former Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter are in talks with CNN about roles on its re-launched “Crossfire” program.
“They are talking to Cutter and to Gingrich,” a source familiar with the discussions told Politico
Another source also said, “[Cutter] is in discussions; Newt is in discussions too.”
Representatives for neither CNN, Gingrich, nor Cutter responded to emails from Politico seeking comment.
It is not clear whether Gingrich or Cutter will be regular combatants on the debate show that ran from 1982 to 2005 that featured two pundits — one conservative, the other liberal — going against each other on current political issues.
The show included a wide ranging cast of pundits, including conservatives Pat Buchanan, Robert Novak, John Sununu, and Mary Matalin; and liberals Tom Braden, Michael Kinsley, Geraldine Ferraro, Bill Press, and James Carville.
