Fox News Channel suspends Newt Gingrich as contributor

One leading contender who would seem to fit the bill is Gingrich, who ended his formal relationship with Fox News yesterday, prompting a new round of chatter about his plans.

Former House speaker Newt Gingrich left a closed-door meeting with Donald Trump in March. Towery has known Gingrich for decades, and chaired the Gingrich re-election campaigns during his time as House Speaker. McBride noted in an interview with CNNMoney that Gingrich "has his loyalties to Fox and he has his loyalties to himself, to his ambitions to be veep".

The Fox News Channel announced that it and Gingrich have agreed to suspend their contributor agreement in the wake of reports that Trump may pick the former House speaker.

This is a huge indicator that Donald Trump will tap Gingrich to be his running mate.

Gingrich has been a regular on Fox News since 1999, with the exception of a break in 2011 while he ran for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination.

There are some other Republicans still in the running, however. Trump also confirmed Gingrich will play a role in his administration, whether it's as vice president or another position. Michael T. Flynn, a retired general and frequent critic of Barack Obama, is seen as a dark horse candidate to become Trump's vice president pick. He brings to the table much of what Trump has desired in those around him, including experience in politics and the inner workings of Washington. We're talking about this more from a television perspective, and it's probably the right move for Fox News to make - even if keeping Newt on the air amid such speculation would have likely been a nice little ratings shot in the arm for them. "That's why I think Newt is uniquely qualified to serve both of those roles and he could do them very effectively". The Republican presumptive nominee said he will announce his selection within a few days, noting that he already had someone "really good" in mind.
