The actions of Newt’s long-time advisor, Rich Galen, suggests the answer is no. Galen has signed on as a senior advisor to Fred Thompson. According to Newsweek:
“Assuming he gets into the race, I think Fred Thompson may well be the best combination of insider-outsider experience and possess the new kind of ideas that don’t exist in either party,” Galen told CNN, where he has appeared as an on-air political analyst. It’s unlikely that Galen would jump to another candidate without Gingrich’s blessing. Galen was Gingrich’s top communications aide in the House and has been an unpaid adviser and friend since then.
