Los Angeles Times– Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich endorsed John Cox’s gubernatorial campaign on Monday.
“As a lifelong conservative and taxpayer advocate, John Cox will put California on the road back to lower taxes, fiscal accountability and individual liberty,” Gingrich said in a statement. “He is the person we need to rescue California from decades of radical, left-wing policies.”
Gingrich, who unsuccessfully ran for president in 2012 and is an ally of President Trump, is the most prominent Republican to endorse a GOP candidate in the race to replace Gov. Jerry Brown.
