Newt Gingrich names new Ga. team

ATLANTA (AP) -- Newt Gingrich is naming a new Georgia leadership team as he works to rebuild his struggling presidential bid.
The former House speaker has tapped former backers of 2008 presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee to spearhead his efforts in his old home state. Huckabee won Georgia in the Republican presidential primary that year.
Public Service Commissioner Stan Wise, state Rep. Harry Geisinger and grassroots leader Maria Strollo Zack will help lead Gingrich's Georgia campaign.
Gov. Nathan Deal is serving as chairman of Gingrich's Georgia campaign.
Gingrich's state director in Georgia, Scott Rials, was one of 18 aides and advisers who resigned this month.
The former Georgia congressman is pledging to run "a citizen campaign built on solutions that will bring real change to Washington."
