Marianne Gingrich, the second wife ofwho has often said she could end Gingrich’s career with one interview, sat down with ABC News earlier this week for an on-camera interview, according to the . After much wrangling among network executives about when to air the interview, ABC will air the interview tonight on “Nightline,” which airs at 11:35 PM EST, an hour and a half after the Republican presidential debate in South Carolina.
Reports are that Marianne Gingrich says nothing new in the interview, and much of what she says is similar to what she told Esquire in a previous interview in 2010. But the impact of those words when spoken on camera can have a greater impact.
Gingrich is gaining momentum in South Carolina before Saturday’s “first-in-the-South” primary, and he told HUMAN EVENTS that he had a path to victory not only in South Carolina but beyond. Gingrich’s strategy is to win South Carolina and then consolidate the anti-Romney conservative vote going forward into states such as Florida, where the Republican primary is closed to registered Republican voters only. Gingrich’s path may have been made easier today when Perry withdrew from the race and endorsed the former House Speaker.
