AP – Jan. 21, 2012: Republican presidential candidate and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich speaks during a South Carolina Republican presidential primary night rally in Columbia, S.C.
Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has endorsed Newt Gingrich for the GOP nomination.
“I hereby officially and enthusiastically endorse Newt Gingrich for President of the United States,” Cain said at a dinner the two attended in Florida on Saturday night.
“I know what this sausage grinder is all about. I know he’s going through this sausage grinder because he cares about the American people,” Cain said referring to the 2012 political campaign that has so far produced three different winners in three contests.
Gingrich, a former House of Representatives speaker, is in a fierce fight for Tuesday’s Florida’s Republican primary with Mitt Romney.
