Gingrich to campaign for Romney

(CNN) – Newt Gingrich will step up his support of Mitt Romney next week when he campaigns on the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's behalf at the Georgia state GOP convention, Gingrich's spokesman said Friday.

Gingrich, who represented Georgia in the U.S. House, will stump for Romney next Friday, spokesman R.C. Hammond told CNN. The convention will be held on Friday and Saturday in Columbus, Georgia.

Gingrich ended his White House bid just over a week ago, and said in an interview on CNN's "Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer" that his speech announcing his departure from the race was also his official endorsement of Romney.

Georgia voted in March and was one of the two states whose presidential contests Gingrich won.

    The mathematics of Republistan : Emperor Newt + Bishop Bully = Sarah Pitbull x President Cheney

    The same mathematics outside Republistan: Zero + Zero = Zero x Zero

    Gingrich calls him a "liar" on air, then campaigns for him. Talk about disingenuous! You repugnicants are such a whimsical group.

    That will probably help Romney with independents – two masters of money. For themselves and those like them, that is.

    Newt always goes where the money is. Unfortunately for Newt he has found someone as greedy with his money as Newt is ready to grab as much loot as he can. They deserve one another!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Romney will use Gingrich as a political attack dog to launch highly inflammatory personal attacks. Swift boating is a dirty political attack art perfected by the GOP/Tea Party.
