Newt To Campaign For Mitt in Georgia!

With Newt being fairly unpopular with conservatives and even less popular with the general public, what good does it do for Romney to have a character like Newt campaigning for him? Romney is already the supposed R nominee, so why? I would think it only hurts his general election campaign.

This should be interesting.
Newt is obviously angling for a position in a Romney administration.
It helps when you're the smartest one in the room ....and not by a little!

When you are a Washington insider of grand proportions, it's imperative that you get yourself back into the mix.

I don't think there is any question about where GA's electoral votes will go, regardless of who the Republican nominee is. I do imagine the support for Mitt will be tepid at best. What this might mean is a lower turn out, certainly not enough to swing the state to Obama, but perhaps the party is worried about local elections, although I don't really see that either. I just don't see this having any perceptible impact.

Romney is only the supposed nominee by the media and any sheep.

Romney is already considered a moderate by that really important voting base.
It is probably thought by some that Newt should serve to bring many of the Conservatives back on board.

At this point, I think it's a neutral because this race isn't about Romney. It's 100% on Obama's record.
Sure, Obama and his minions in the press are trying daily to distract from Obama's record by attempting to push stories about Romney's Happy Days and nonsense like that. There will be much more before the election, and it'll be fun to watch.

But meh, Newt's not going to change a thing.

What good does it do? I guess the same amount of good Obama gets from the Communist party of America's endorsement.
