Tonight, Newt Gingrich received an endorsement from former GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain at a Republican gathering in West Palm Beach.
I don’t think this endorsement is too surprising. Although Cain endorsed Mitt Romney in 2008, he and Gingrich have known each other for many years and were quite chummy on the campaign trail.
It is worth remembering that Cain began his surge in the polls in the Sunshine State back in September when he won a straw poll. Cain’s endorsement may help Gingrich with some Tea Party voters but Newt will need other things to break his way to neutralize Romney’s surge in the polls.
