While you wolfed down that Turkey Sandwich, Stand in lines for Black Friday Game consoles, than go to your favorite local store on Shop Local Saturday, and mouse clicks all around in the early hours of Cyber Sunday, we were here awaiting the New Hampshire Union Leader to post their endorsement for President.
Oh, the life of a Politisite political pundit.
But finally it arrives, Mitt Romney? Jon Huntsman? Not a chance, We were shocked! The Union Leader wants political experience in a divided government. That would be Newt Gingrich.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has clinched an important endorsement from New Hampshire’s largest newspaper, New Hampshire Union Leader. Despite his stance on immigration, Gingrich continues in a statistical tie with front runner Mitt Romney in most polls. In New Hampshire there is, however a big gap. Mitt Romney leads the former speaker 41 to 14%.
From the Union Leader:
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.
Gingrich wins Union Leader endorsement
GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich received the endorsement of the influential editorial board of the New Hampshire Union Leader on Sunday, providing another boost to his surging campaign.
The endorsement gives the former House Speaker additional momentum after a month which has seen him vault to the top of national GOP polls.
“We are in critical need of the innovative, forward-looking strategy and positive leadership that Gingrich has shown he is capable of providing,” said the editorial by publisher Joseph W. McQuaid.
“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,” he added.
