Gingrich won’t run for U.S. Senate in Georgia

Newt Gingrich's spokesman confirmed on Friday that the former presidential candidate and U.S. House member from Georgia will not be a candidate for the U.S. Senate.

Hammond tweeted the news after Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss' announcement that he will not be running for re-election in 2014.

Democrats are already expressing optimism about the open-seat race.

Guy Cecil, executive director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, released the following statement on Friday:

Georgia will now offer Democrats one of our best pick-up opportunities of the cycle. There are already several reports of the potential for a divisive primary that will push Republicans to the extreme right. Regardless, there’s no question that the demographics of the state have changed and Democrats are gaining strength. This will be a top priority.
