Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich gained another congressional supporter Thursday, with tea party stalwart Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, R-Ga., giving him the nod, The Hill reports.

Westmoreland becomes the eighth member of Congress and the fifth member of the Georgia delegation to back the former House Speaker, who also is from Georgia.

“Newt is a true conservative and a proven leader who has focused his campaign on the issues, presenting real solutions to the problems facing our country today,” Westmoreland said in a statement. “He is uniting conservatives across the country, and I believe he is the best man to defeat President [Barack] Obama. I'm proud to put my support behind Newt and look forward to helping him win back the White House."
