Perry Could Blunt Marianne and ABC News.
If I were Newt Gingrich, I’d ring up Rick Perry and have him cut an ad where he talks about the power of redemption and being reconciled to God and the need for bold, conservative leadership in Washington.
That was the absolute best, most genuine defense of Gingrich on his personal life I have heard. This would blunt ABC News’s interview with Marianne Gingrich.
I think Newt has handled the situation pretty well, but getting assurances from a prominent social conservative could soothe a lot of conservative’s fears about supporting a man with as sordid a past as Gingrich.
I should also add that Rick Perry’s 4% average in polling in SC is not indicative of the level of support he has in SC. Many people like Rick Perry and I think his endorsement carries a lot of weight with not only his supporters, but Rick Santorum supporters.
