Former Speaker Newt Gingrich will decide by early March whether he'll run for president next year, he told Fox News.

He said that he and his wife will start discussions later this month.

“Callista and I will start discussing it the last part of February," Gingrich said Thursday evening on Hannity. "We'll talk with our family. We'll think this through.  And by very early March, you will know something pretty definitive.  But I think as we are coming down now to a period of three or four weeks.”

Gingrich addressed the Conservative Action Political Conference on Thursday and gave no hints to his 2012 plans.
