Newt Gingrich Won't Run for President

After many hints to the contrary, Newt Gingrich has decided not to run for president.

The Republican was faced with the decision to either continue as chairman of the political action committee American Solutions or go for the presidency. He could not legally do both. In the end, he chose American Solutions, said the New York Times.

According to the Washington Post, a news conference had been set for Monday to announce Gingrich's formation of an exploratory commitee, and Gingrich has said that he has already been offered millions in would-be campaign contributions.

The Washington Post article was much longer and contained a lot more background information than the New York Times. This is probably because the Post is located in Washington and focuses more on politics.
