Westmoreland endorses Gingrich for GOP nomination
Third District U.S. Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, a former Fayette County resident, has endorsed Newt Gingrich for president.
“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,” Congressman Westmoreland said. “He is uniting conservatives across the country and I believe he is the best man to defeat President Obama. I’m proud to put my support behind Newt and look forward to helping him win back the White House.”
“I’m delighted to have the support of my friend Lynn Westmoreland, a true conservative leader for Georgia,” Gingrich said today. “Our campaign continues to build momentum and enthusiasm, as voters increasingly understand that we are the conservative choice in this election.”
Westmoreland (R-3rd District) was first elected to Congress in 2004 and currently serves on the House Financial Services Committee and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. He lives in Grantville.
