Kenny Bingham, South Carolina's House Majority Leader, announced he is endorsing former House Speaker Gingrich in his run for the White House.
Bingham is among South Carolina's rising GOP stars and is considered one of the most fiscally and socially conservative members of the state House He plans to campaign throughout the state for Gingrich, his office said in a press release.
Bingham said he “was glad to join the team and believes that Newt’s dedicated leadership can help rebuild this country. It will take bold leadership, new ideas and the ability to work within the system while simultaneously and drastically transforming it. I believe that Newt Gingrich is the right person for this critical time in our nation.”
Gingrich said that he was "humbled and honored by Kenny’s support. He is a voice for cutting taxes and responsible spending, and understands that we are in a perilous juncture in the history of our country. Now is the time for bold reform of the tax code, regulation and our energy policies to create jobs and economic growth, not timid changes that will do little to create jobs and buy into President Obama’s rhetoric of class warfare.”
