Gingrich to Decide in September

Newt Gingrich has said that he will decide in September if he will run for the Republican nomination for President.

Speaking at the National Review Institute's Conservative Summit on Saturday, Gingrich took a swipe at those who have already declared, calling the whole process "stupid".

Gingrich said that running for President 2 years out from the election is because of the control of consultants, and they are no friends of the Conservative movement.

Citing popular Presidents, Ronald Reagan and John F Kennedy as not making their announcements until less than 12 months before the election, Gingrich said candidates should spend the next year talking about solutions, not raising money.

He said that he would be making an announcement near Labor Day.
