Gingrich won’t run

Boring but important

After hinting for months that he may seek the Republican presidential nomination, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has taken himself out of contention. Gingrich, who quit Congress in 1998 following his party’s heavy losses in midterm elections, now runs American Solutions, a political action committee. Under election law, a spokesman explained, Gingrich would have had to give up that post to form a presidential exploratory committee. “Mr. Gingrich made a choice to remain a citizen activist,” said spokesman Rick Tyler.
