Newt the Hut receives a huge endorsement from the New Hampshire Union Leader.
"We are in critical need of the innovative, forward-looking strategy and positive leadership that Gingrich has shown he is capable of providing," The New Hampshire Union Leader said in its front-page editorial, which was as much a promotion of Gingrich as a discreet rebuke of Romney.But will this really hurt Mittens? Maybe not, he has a huge lead in NH, but it's not good for him to lose this endorsement. However, it's good for us. Everybody knows Newt can't win a national election and all this Mitt Hate just sets it up for Obama to take it all.
"We don't back candidates based on popularity polls or big-shot backers. We look for conservatives of courage and conviction who are independent-minded, grounded in their core beliefs about this nation and its people, and best equipped for the job," the editorial said.
