Asked by Newsmax if he would consider picking Herman Cain to be his vice presidential nominee, Newt Gingrich said, “I think that’s a real possibility.”
But Gingrich is also very open to other options.
“I think there are other possibilities,” he continued. “There are several very good candidates running for president. We have a number of great potential [vice presidential] candidates, people like Marco Rubio, the senator from Florida, so you really don’t want to preclude looking at a number of people.”
“I think there are a lot of folks out there in the Republican Party,” Gingrich added, “and a number of them would be very good vice presidents and frankly good presidents.”
