Mar. 13 – 1st District Congressional update: Newt jumps in for McCallum

Brunswick Business Journal Staff Report

March 13, 2014 – Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and his wife, Callista, today announced their endorsement of conservative businessman John McCallum, one of five Republican candidates for the U.S. Congress in Georgia's First Congressional District. McCallum was an aide for Gingrich when he was Speaker.  

"Callista and I are proud to endorse John McCallum in his campaign for the U.S. Congress," said Speaker Gingrich.  "I have known John for nearly twenty years, ever since he came to work in my office in 1993 as an unpaid intern.  He rose through the ranks and eventually served as my trusted aide on budget, banking, and tax issues during the Contract with America.  John understands the legislative process and is ready to go to work for the people of Georgia's First District on Day One.

"John McCallum embodies the American Dream. He is an innovator, entrepreneur, and conservative businessman with a proven track record of service and leadership.  John represents a new generation of bold, conservative leaders who are more concerned about winning the future than fighting the partisan political battles of the past.

"I am confident that John McCallum will be a principled, effective representative for the people of Georgia's First District, and I look forward to standing with him as he fights to restore sanity, accountability, and trust in the United States Congress."

"Heather and I are honored to have Newt and Callista's support," said John McCallum.  "Under Speaker Gingrich's leadership, Republicans articulated a bold, conservative agenda for our nation's future.  If America is to remain strong, we must once again pursue positive, proactive solutions that empower individuals, strengthen families, and hold government accountable to the people."

Speaker Gingrich currently serves as a host of CNN's Crossfire.  He is a former presidential candidate, historian, and best-selling author.  His most recent book is titled Breakout.  Callista Gingrich is a New York Times best-selling author of children's books focusing on American exceptionalism, including her latest book Yankee Doodle Dandy.
