Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has picked up the endorsement of the highly influential Manchester Union Leader in New Hampshire, a boost for the 2012 Republican presidential candidate. Check out the article here. The article says,
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.
It is excellent to see people are getting a chance to thoroughly vet these Republican candidates. Mr. Gingrich has been through a lot, and although not perfect, seems to be willing to admit his mistakes. We need experience in the Whitehouse as we know what inexperience in government can do to the nation.
