Newt Gingrich Endorses Marine Veteran Steven Palazzo

Mississippi candidate Steven Palazzo within two points of ‘Blue Dog’ Gene Taylor

Alexandria, Virginia – Speaker Newt Gingrich and American Solutions has officially announced its endorsement of conservative Republican Steven Palazzo (MS-04).

“Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District is one of the most conservative districts in the country, but has been represented by a Democrat who votes with Nancy Pelosi’s agenda nearly 80 percent of the time. Steven Palazzo is a true representative of the values of his conservative district and will fight to create jobs in South Mississippi through less spending and less taxing,” said Speaker Newt Gingrich.

“I am honored to be endorsed by American Solutions. Speaker Gingrich is the leader on conservative issues and solutions. When elected, I will carry the conservative banner in Congress and get American families back to work,” said Palazzo.

According to Palazzo, “Taylor’s cloaked himself in conservatism to navigate the conservative waters in South Mississippi. The day he voted for Nancy Pelosi was the day he quit putting the interest of Mississippi families first. It’s time to send him home to live by the laws he helped create,” said Palazzo.

Steven Palazzo’s campaign has surged in recent weeks due to an aggressive TV campaign that prosecutes the case that Gene Taylor has ‘lost his way’ and no longer represents the values of South Mississippians.

Gingrich says, “Any time an incumbent is at only 44 percent, the challenger is in an ideal position for victory. Palazzo is within two points of Gene Taylor and has a real chance to take back a conservative seat.”
