Former U.S. House speaker Newt Gingrich will be meeting with Gov. Nathan Deal at 2 p.m. Thursday in the state Capitol to talk about a joint project asserting states’ rights under the Tenth Amendment, a Deal spokesman said this afternoon.
Don’t look for any announcement of Gingrich’s presidential intentions to come out of the meeting. “We aren’t having anything to do with anything else,” Deal spokesman Brian Robinson said – although his boss has already indicated he’ll support Gingrich should he run.
ABC News reported this morning that Gingrich’s announcement will come by Friday.
Robinson wouldn’t add any information about the meeting topic, except to say that the topic was federalism, and had a connection with Gingrich’s American Solutions organization.
