Palin: Newt's the frontrunner now

The 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate, speaking on Fox News Saturday night, said Texas Gov. Rick Perry “took one for the team” when he suspended his campaign and endorsed Gingrich.

“I think what Rick Perry having dropped out and that patriot having done well for the front-runner, whom I will call Newt Gingrich now, being the front-runner, having endorsed him, was a good smart move,” Palin told Fox’s Bret Baier. “He kind of took one for the team there, the conservative team, when he dropped out.”
