Newt Gingrich get endorsement from the Union Leader.
Mitt Romney, the former Governor of Massachusetts, has an overwhelming 41% to 14% lead over GOP Presidential hopeful Gingrich in the polls leading up to the New Hampshire primaries. New Hampshire’s popular and influential newspaper, the Union Leader, has endorsed Newt Gingrich for President. Whether such endorsements have as much political influence as they used to is yet to be seen. However, what cannot be denied is the continued momentum of the former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich.
This newspaper endorses Newt Gingrich in the New Hampshire Presidential Primary.
America is at a crucial crossroads. It is not going to be enough to merely replace Barack Obama next year. We are in critical need of the innovative, forward-looking strategy and positive leadership that Gingrich has shown he is capable of providing.
He did so with the Contract with America. He did it in bringing in the first Republican House in 40 years and by forging balanced budgets and even a surplus despite the political challenge of dealing with a Democratic President. A lot of candidates say they’re going to improve Washington. Newt Gingrich has actually done that, and in this race he offers the best shot of doing it again.
Newt Gingrich is by no means the perfect candidate. But Republican primary voters too often make the mistake of preferring an unattainable ideal to the best candidate who is actually running. In this incredibly important election, that candidate is Newt Gingrich. He has the experience, the leadership qualities and the vision to lead this country in these trying times. He is worthy of your support on January 10.
It is hard to imagine that Gingrich could defeat Romney in the Granite state as Romney still has political endorsements from NH politicians including former Gov. John Sununu, former US Sen. Judd Gregg, and US Sen. Kelly Ayotte. However, a strong second place showing for Gingrich could go a long way.
