Gingrich to Talk About Testing Presidential Bid

Thursday, 03 Mar 2011 06:48 AM

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will talk about his plans to begin raising money to test whether a bid for the GOP presidential nomination is feasible.

Gingrich is set to talk about the step at a news conference Thursday at the state Capitol in his home state of Georgia where he has a meeting with the governor.

Spokesman Rick Tyler says Gingrich "is entering the exploratory phase" of a presidential candidacy.

He is stopping short of setting up an exploratory committee, which would have made him a legal candidate. Tyler says Gingrich and his wife, Callista, oversee a web of commercial and nonprofit ventures and must tie up some loose ends with those businesses before they can take that step.

But Tyler says "this is a serious exploratory phase."
