A staffer who worked on the 2012 presidential campaign of former House Speaker and current cable news host Newt Gingrich has launched a new political action committee this week in an attempt to galvanize support to "draft" Mr. Gingrich to run for U.S. Senate next year against Sen. Mark Warner, Virginia Democrat.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich firmly closed the door on a U.S. Senate run from Virginia in response to a draft campaign by a political action committee.
Presidential historians often say that unfriendly news coverage typically comes with the territory for a second-term president. Indeed, President Obama has been negotiating an unfamiliar, unfriendly media landscape in recent days, one that has sprouted negative reviews of his leadership, and not necessarily from his conservative critics.
"U.S. Sen. Newt Gingrich would be an immediate game-changer, giving conservatives another voice that would take the fight to the Obama administration," said Andrew Hemingway, Mr. Gingrich's 2012 state director in New Hampshire and national director of digital fundraising.
"We want a credible challenger to Mark Warner, and no one could do what Newt could do to fight — and win," said Andrew Hemingway, Mr. Gingrich's 2012 state director in New Hampshire and national director of digital fundraising.
