The New Hampshire Union-Leader Endorses Gingrich
It’s no surprise that a paper that twice endorsed White Nationalist Pat Buchanan is now endorsing the Neoconfederate favorite Son, Newt Gingrich. They’ve got a 24 year long history of endorsing losers, with their last good pick being Reagan. (Reagan, Dupont, Buchanan, Buchanan, Forbes, McCain, Gingrich)
The New Hampshire Union Leader endorsed former House Speaker Newt Gingrich in Sunday editions, signaling that rival Mitt Romney isn’t the universal favorite and that the state’s largest newspaper could reset the contest there with six weeks to go before voters cast their ballots.
“We are in critical need of the innovative, forward-looking strategy and positive leadership that Gingrich has shown he is capable of providing,” the newspaper wrote in an editorial that was as much a promotion of Gingrich as a discreet rebuke of Romney.
“We don’t back candidates based on popularity polls or big-shot backers. We look for conservatives of courage and conviction who are independent-minded, grounded in their core beliefs about this nation and its people, and best equipped for the job,” the newspaper continued.
Romney enjoys a solid leads in New Hampshire polls and remains at the front of the pack nationally. A poll released last week showed him with 42 percent support among likely Republican primary voters in New Hampshire. Gingrich followed with 15 percent in the WMUR-University of New Hampshire Granite State poll.
