Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal asks legislators to support Gingrich

Who would be the best candidate to run against President Obama?

ATLANTA (AP) - Governor Nathan Deal is urging state legislators to support Newt Gingrich's bid for president.

In a letter to state officials, Deal encouraged legislators "to join me and many fellow Georgians in endorsing our next president, Georgia's own, Newt Gingrich." He noted that Gingrich is leading the GOP field in many polls.

Deal is Georgia state chairman of Gingrich's White House campaign. The two served together in the U.S. House and Gingrich.

The Gingrich camp is set to roll out new endorsements at a news conference Tuesday at the state Capitol.

Recently U.S. Rep. Lynn Westmoreland announced his support for Gingrich, becoming the third member of the state's GOP congressional delegation to back the former House speaker.

Glad to see Deal is an Obama supporter. But I guess if he backed any republican the outcome of Obama winning again would be the same. It's just a matter of how much of a spanking do the R's want? WHOA, better not ask that, I can guess the answer!
