Washington (CNN) - Newt Gingrich affirmed in a radio interview Thursday that he plans to take his first official step toward a presidential bid later in the day after a meeting with Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal.
"Callista and I are prepared to see if there are enough folks who want to see if we can get this country back on the right track," Gingrich told Georgia radio host Martha Zoller.
The former House Speaker said he plans to launch a website to accompany the presidential exploratory phase he is expected to announce.

Gingrich said the site will go live at some point Thursday afternoon.
