3 time married, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich has declared that he will run for 2012 presidential election. This should come as no surprise since he formed a presidential expository committee in March, and has been raising and campaigning again President Obama since then. In fact, so far, he has constantly disagree with Pres. Obama. He even had to flip-flop on Libya in order to remain an Obama-antagonist!
Gingrich has made no secret of his White House ambitions. He has been raising money and assembling a campaign team for months and has traveled frequently to states that hold early presidential primary elections or caucuses. Doing well in early primaries is considered necessary for a candidacy to prosper.
"I have been humbled by all the encouragement you have given me to run," Gingrich wrote Monday in his official announcement on Facebook and Twitter. He said he would talk more about his bid Wednesday on Fox News.
Gingrich is dogged by extramarital affairs and having been married three times. He has been working to make inroads with social conservatives critical to the Republican primary base, highlighting his conversion to Roman Catholicism after marrying his third wife, Callista.
