The newly formed political action committee, Draft Newt PAC, wants Newt Gingrich to run for Senate…..in Virginia. Newt’s former New Hampshire State Director Andrew Hemingway is spearheading this thing. From a press release:
We want a credible challenger to Mark Warner, and no one could do what Newt could do to fight – and win. U.S. Senator Newt Gingrich would be an immediate game changer, giving conservatives another voice that would take the fight to the Obama administration.”
The national effort is starting with a petition from thousands of Americans to draft Newt and serve as part of a grassroots effort to support his sought-for candidacy.
“With his history of support for far-reaching government reforms and fiscal sanity – for actually balancing the budget – Newt Gingrich was Tea Party before there was a tea party” added Dan Backer, Draft Newt’s treasurer. “No one can better articulate the values of millions of Virginians seeking an end to government overreach, the repeal of Obamacare and tax relief for hardworking Americans. And, Newt is one of the few potential candidates who can unite tea party conservatives and establishment republicans behind a winning ticket,” concluded Backer.
If Crossfire gets cancelled, I guess it’s always an option.
