Newt Gingrich Continues His Endorsement Tour of Ohio
And this time he endorsed Bob Gibbs for Congress:
(Lakeville, OH) – Former Speaker of the House and General Chairman of American Solutions Newt Gingrich today issued an endorsement for Bob Gibbs in his race for Congress in Ohio’s 18th Congressional district. The 18th Congressional district is one of the most competitive congressional districts in the country having voted for McCain in 2008, carrying a large Republican registration advantage and having an incumbent Democrat Congressman that votes with Nancy Pelosi over 93% of the time.
“I’m proud to endorse Bob Gibbs in his race for Congress,” said Gingrich. “Under the Democratic Congress, unemployment in this district has more than doubled, and yet they continue to vote for job killing bills like Cap and Trade. When in Congress, Bob Gibbs will fight to stop the harmful cap and trade bill and work hard every day to put the people in his district back to work.”
It’s nice that Gingrich opposes Cap and Trade… But he also wrote, A Contract with the Earth, a HORRIBLE book about the environment where he accepts the dubious science behind global warming and proposes a series of heavy-handed carbon tax and incentive schemes which are just as awful, if not worse, than Cap and Trade.
From a conservative perspective, saying Newt is solid on environmental policy would be as smart as appointing him the GOP’s oracle on traditional family values.
