Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich made his bid for the GOP presidential nomination official Friday by filing campaign finance paperwork with the I.R.S., the New York Times reports.

The filing requires Gingrich to report and track campaign-related donations and expenses to the I.R.S. Campaign officials told the New York Times that they intend to submit their first filing in July. If Gingrich does become an official candidate he will then begin filing campaign finance forms with the Federal Election Commission.

Gingrich announced Thursday that he would open the exploratory committee along with a new website, NewtExplore2012.com. But his newest foray into politics got off to a rocky start when it was discovered that the similarly named site ExploreNewt2012.com redirects to former La. Gov. Buddy Roemer's exploratory committee site.

 

Both Roemer and Gingrich announced their candidacy on Thursday and began raising contributions this week. So far they are the first candidates raising money for the 2012 GOP primary.
