Gingrich To Make Run Official Wednesday

MSNBC.COM - Newt Gingrich will officially announce Wednesday he will seek the Republican nomination for president, Gingrich's spokesman confirmed to NBC News.

The former House speaker will make the official announcement via social networks Facebook and Twitter. His first television interview will be later that night on Hannity on FOX. There, he will lay out his rationale for running, according to spokesman Rick Tyler.

Gingrich will make his first speech as a presidential candidate Friday at the Georgia GOP convention. And then heads to Eureka, Ill., Ronald Reagan's hometown, where he delivers the commencement speech at Eureka College.

Gingrich, a former congressman from Georgia, will base his campaign in Georgia.

As we wrote this morning, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was expected to be jumping into the presidential race sometime this week. At a news conference in March, Gingrich announced the formation of a fundraising website but stopped short of establishing a formal presidential exploratory committee.

In a recent national poll from Quinnipiac, Gingrich won the support of five percent of Republican and Republican-leaning voters.
