((LOCATOR: MARIETTA, GA.
The day after Newt Gingrich's announcement that he was quitting without a fight...official Washington, and many people across the country, were still surprised and asking for more details.
Gingrich finally offered some...confirming that in addition to stepping down as Speaker of the House, he will resign his seat in Congress.

SOT 16:08:20 (REP. NEWT GINGRICH/R-GA.): FOR ME TO STAY IN THE HOUSE

WOULD MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR A NEW LEADER TO HAVE A CHANCE TO GROW, TO LEARN AND TO DO WHAT THEY NEED TO DO. AND I THINK THERE COMES A TIME WHEN YOU'VE GOT TO STEP OUT AND LET A NEW TEAM TAKE OVER, LET A NEW TEAM TRY TO DO THE BEST THEY CAN.
Gingrich's decision came two days after he took responsibility for the G-O-P's losses in the House in Tuesday's election.
LOCATOR: WASHINGTON, D.C./FRIDAY.
His Friday announcement came just hours after Congressman Bob Livingston of Louisiana declared he would challenge Gingrich for the speaker's job in the new Congress. Livingston is considered by many as the front runner in a race that's still being defined.
Another senior Republican, who was thinking about running, has decided to stay out of it.

SOT 12:39:52 (REP. BILL ARCHER/R-TX.): I MAY BE THE RIGHT MAN FOR THE

JOB, BUT THE JOB IS NOT THE RIGHT ONE FOR ME AT THIS TIME IN MY CAREER.

SOT: CLINTON LEAVING FOR CAMP DAVID.


The President headed to Camp David...he had been surprised by the news, like everyone else, while on a trip to Arkansas. In a statement, he described Gingrich as a worthy adversary.
STAND-UP (JONATHAN FREED/CBS NEWS): GINGRICH ALSO SAID HE DECIDED TO LEAVE BECAUSE HE COULD NOT STAND BY AND ALLOW THE PARTY TO, QUOTE, "CANNIBALIZE ITSELF". THE LEADERSHIP VOTE IS IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS. J-F...WASHINGTON. ))
