Gingrich To Wait, See About Presidency

Compiled From Wire Services

House Speaker Newt Gingrich, taking advantage of a congressional break to begin selling his new book, said Monday that he would not rule out a run for the White House in 1996 “if a vacuum developed.”

Gingrich, in interviews at stops across Georgia and on CNN’s “Larry King Show,” said he would make no final decision until December, the filing deadline for New Hampshire’s kickoff primary.

“Things change in the age of television very fast. I think we’ll have to wait and see,” he said.
