Newt Gingrich's vast political experience makes him the Republican best suited for the White House, his fellow Georgian, former Sen. Mack Mattingly, said on Wednesday.

“What Newt will bring to the presidency with his experience gained, lessons learned, leadership developed, wisdom culled will give America the best future,” Mattingly said as he and his wife, Leslie, endorsed Gingrich.

“My heart and my head are telling me what Newt is saying to America is the right message. What Newt is committed to giving America is the right plan.”

Mattingly served in the U.S. Senate for one term, from 1981-87. He was the first Republican elected from Georgia since Reconstruction.

He said all four remaining GOP candidates have strong messages. “Each is demonstrating day in and day out an extraordinary, untiring personal commitment of truly amazing conviction,” he said. “And they are thus giving the American public a rare opportunity to express their personal beliefs.

“At this point, each vote in the presidential primary is not merely a show of increasingly unified opposition to our current administration’s failed policies — each vote is a voice — a loud message to the nation, and to our elected officials of what we, as citizens, want for our country and for our children’s children.”

Gingrich called Mattingly a legend in Georgian politics. “Mack and I go back a long way. We worked diligently together to transform Georgia from a Blue state to a Red state. I’m proud to have him on my team as we work toward Super Tuesday and winning the nomination in Tampa this summer.”
