Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Sunday that he expects to be running for president within a month.
Gingrich touted his “very good team” and the reception he has received during appearances in early presidential primary and caucus states.
“I have recently been in South Carolina, New Hampshire, Iowa, the places you need to go, as well as Texas, Florida and North Carolina,” Gingrich said. “The water is pretty warm. My hope is that within a month, we’ll be in swimming there very rapidly.”
The former Georgia congressman, who has been married three times, also addressed his past indiscretions – a perceived weakness for the potential candidate – saying he did things of which he is not proud.
“I don’t think I’m perfect. I admitted I had problems. I admitted that I sought forgiveness,” Gingrich said. “But I also think over time, if you look at my record, I’m a pretty effective leader.”
