Think Newt Gingrich is out of politics?
A 2016 presidential run, sources say, hasn’t been ruled out. “There’s no planning or anything like that. But these are people who are big fans of his, so a lot of them want to see him run in 2016,” said one insider who attended.
Though the party was a social occasion, guests included most of the major names in Newt’s political circle — former congressman Bob Walker, pollster Frank Luntz, consultant Rex Elsass, and dozens of former staffers.
Gingrich spoke for a few minutes about the importance of family and friends. “He seemed overwhelmed at all the people who were there from all over the country,” an attendee said.
