Many Palin supporters would have liked to hear Newt Gingrich thank Governor Palin, along with the plethora of others he thanked, upon winning South Carolina. He did not do so from the podium tonight. However, he had already credited her for his surge.
Via Red Dog Report:
There’s no question we saw it help us in fundraising. We saw it help us in volunteers. We saw people, all of a sudden, on the phones. She has a significant following in the Republican Party.
And frankly, I mean, to have her say she’d vote for me in South Carolina, since we’re in South Carolina and the election’s on Saturday, that was a big break and it really helped us a lot.
As recent as Wednesday, the former Speaker said he will ask Governor Palin to play a "major role" in his administration if he is elected President. Huma Khan of ABC News reports:
"Certainly, she’s one of the people I’d call on for advice,” Gingrich said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “I would ask her to consider taking a major role in the next administration if I’m president, but nothing has been discussed of any kind. And it wouldn’t be appropriate to discuss it at this time."
Time will tell, but this could get rather interesting.
