Jerry Wood, chairman of the Sussex County Republican Party, and Bill Sahm, chair of the Northern New Castle County Region of the Delaware GOP, have both thrown their weight behind Gingrich’s struggling campaign.
“Delaware will not be marginalized and will not be taken for granted,” said Wood. “Newt Gingrich is the only candidate who has taken the time to campaign in every part of the First State. Furthermore, he has persuasively made the case that his detailed plans for jump starting the economy with bold tax reform, returning to a balanced budget, and an energy strategy to return gasoline to $2.50 per gallon are the right direction for America. This Tuesday, I will proudly vote for Newt Gingrich over Mitt Romney and encourage my fellow Sussex County Republicans to do the same.”
Wood’s endorsement comes on the heels of Kent County GOP chairman Hans Reigle’s decision to switch his support from Romney to Gingrich, and now gives Gingrich the backing of a majority of the state’s Republican county chairs.
