Newt pledges his "life, fortune, honor" to defeat the left

| No Comments

ORLANDO--White House hopeful Newt Gingrich issued a battle cry against the left in an address to a GOP group here, as he stumps across the state this weekend in advance of the Tuesday Florida primary.

Said Gingrich, "In the greatest tradition of our founding document, I will pledge you, my life, my fortune and my sacred honor, if you help me on Tuesday, if I become your nominee, we will decisively defeat the left at every level, we will begin to govern this country in January and with your help we will liberate the American people and they will once again put us on the road to rebuilding the we love."

Gingrich made his remarks to the Orange County Republican Executive Committee Lincoln Day Dinner.

One of the auction items: a chance to spend a day on the campaign trail with Gingrich.
