27

January

More bad Florida news for Newt Gingrich. The influential Latin Builders Association, after hearing today from Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, endorsed Santorum.

"After both candidates presented their speeches, there was a heated debate between the Board as to who was the best candidate. It was ultimately decided that Senator Santorum had the ideals that best reflected those of the Latin Builders Association," said a release from the group.

“We are most interested in supporting a candidate that is going to reinvigorate the economy,” said LBA President Bernie Navarro. “After careful consideration, with points being brought forward supporting each candidate, our board voted to endorse Senator Santorum.”
