Norris Explains Why He Chose Newt

For Chuck Norris, picking a Republican candidate to run against Barack Obama came down to two choices: Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. The reason why he chose the former speaker of the House is simple: Santorum was once a Mitt Romney supporter. "Why an alleged conservative like Santorum would fight for the flip-flopping Massachusetts moderate on the presidential campaign trail, especially in light of the fact that Huckabee and even McCain were running then with a much clearer conservative record, I will never know," wrote Norris today in an explanation of his endorsement. The Newt Gingrich campaign has posted Norris's column on its website.
