NEW YORK — ABC News interviewed Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich’s second wife with whom he’s said he has no relationship and is likely to air the segment Thursday on “Nightline,” an ABC News executive told the Associated Press.
The ABC News executive did not indicate what former wife Marianne Gingrich said in the interview. The executive spoke on the condition of anonymity because the plans for airing the interview were tentative.
The interview, should it air before Saturday’s primary, would shine a spotlight on a part of Mr. Gingrich’s past that could turn off Republican voters in a state filled with religious and cultural conservatives who may cringe at Mr. Gingrich’s two divorces and acknowledged infidelity.
