Newt Gingrich's spokesman on Sunday dismissed speculation about a potential Gingrich-Rick Perry ticket being announced before the Republican National Convention in August, saying the two camps have not discussed the idea "at any level."I really hope the denials aren't true, because it could mean that Newt Gingrich is actually the secret Republican nominee. On other hand, it could also mean that he was merely finally answering the question Brett Baier asked during the September 22 GOP debate about who he would pick if he were to the nomination.
A report by Fox News cited "sources close to the Gingrich campaign" saying preliminary conversations about such a ticket have begun with the hopes that pairing the former Speaker of the House and the Texas governor might unite evangelical, tea party and other conservative voters.
Whatever the case may be, let us not forget what Rick Perry's response to Baier's query:
I don't know how you would do this, but if you could take Herman Cain and mate him up with Newt Gingrich, I think you would have a couple of really interesting guys to work with.Really interesting indeed.
