The Rev. Donald E. Wildmon, founder and chairman of American Family Association (AFA) and American Family Radio (AFR), has endorsed former House Speaker Newt Gingrich for the Republican nomination for president.

"Newt Gingrich recognizes the threat to our country posed by judges and lawyers imposing values upon the country inconsistent with our religious heritage, and has proposed constitutional steps to bring the courts back in balance under the constitution,” Wildmon said in announcing his endorsement today.

“We need someone in the White House who can balance the budget and get the economy moving again. Newt has done it before, and I believe he can do it again. I am proud to endorse Newt Gingrich for president.”

Gingrich welcomed Wildmon’s endorsement, saying, “Don Wildmon has been one of the most important leaders in the country in the battle to uphold our founding principles. I am humbled and honored to have his endorsement.”

Wildmon, who lives in Tupelo, Miss., where AFA and AFR headquarters are located, will stump for Gingrich in Iowa in advance of the Jan. 3 Iowa caucuses.

Wildmon’s AFA is recognized as “one of the largest and most effective pro-family organizations in the country. The AFR has 190 stations in 20 states, six of which are in Iowa.
