In case you haven't heard, former Speaker Newt Gingrich is set to announce his presidential plans on Wednesday. According to spokesman Rick Tyler, the announcement will be made via Twitter and Facebook and Fox News' Sean Hannity will get the first primetime interview.
(For those who might have missed it, SNL hosted its own parody GOP debate over the weekend -- Scott has it posted here.)
It's not all too surprising that Gingrich plans to make an announcement this week. On Friday, the former Speaker hired his likely campaign manager, Rob Johnson, who recently helped Texas Gov. Rick Perry secure his own electoral victory.
Following his announcement Wednesday, Gingrich will address a convention of Republicans in his home state of Georgia.
