Newt Gingrich has picked up another huge endorsement, one that is so powerful that it could propel him to the top of the polls once again and a likely victory in Iowa: Disgraced evangelist Ted Haggard.
Ted Haggard, former president of the National Association of Evangelicals, says he will support Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich in 2012.
“I am a Newt Gingrich fan partially because he models resurrection to me. He has been married three times, he has gone through his own infidelity, his own growth process, and his own repentance and renewal of faith so I trust him because of that,” Haggard told FOX 411.
Haggard will star on the premiere episode of ABC’s hit series “Celebrity Wife Swap,” opposite actor Gary Busey.
That can’t be a coincidence. I think God is behind all of this. He clearly wants Gingrich to win. Or at least to make sure that he has the snorted-meth-off-a-hooker’s-ass vote sewn up. I predict a comeback in New Hampshire now.
