In a conference call Wednesday with former staffers and supporters former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said “we are leaning toward a yes” on a presidential run, CNN has learned.
That’s not new. But this is:
Several times Gingrich pointed out that “for legal reasons” he can’t say too much – “we are still in the exploratory phase,” but he has lined up the beginning of a campaign rollout. He expects former Georgia Democratic Senator and Governor Zell Miller to be a co-chair “once we put the campaign together.” He says his campaign would be headquartered in Atlanta.
One senses Gov. Nathan Deal’s hand in the Zell Miller mention.
