Gingrich primes White House announcement, opens HQ

Republican Newt Gingrich has opened an Atlanta campaign headquarters in advance of his expected entry next week into the race for president.

Gingrich spokesman Rick Tyler told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the former House speaker had rented out the office space, two floors above the Georgia Republican Party headquarters in an upscale Atlanta neighborhood.

Gingrich is set to address the Georgia Republican Party's convention next Friday in Macon.

Gingrich is testing the waters for a White Hose run and his official entry into the wide-open race has been expected. Tyler says that by the time Gingrich addresses the GOP gathering Gingrich "will be a candidate for president" having officially entered the race for the Republican nomination.
