Beverly LaHaye, founder of Concerned Women for America (CWA), endorsed Newt Gingrich for president January 16th. She joins the Gingrich Faith Leaders Coalition as a national co-chairwoman, along with her husband, Pastor Tim LaHaye who previously endorsed Speaker Gingrich. Mrs. LaHaye built CWA into the largest most effective traditional values women’s organization in America.
“It appears it will be between two front-runners, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. I have worked along beside Speaker Gingrich and know he has a history of being a strong conservative,” LaHaye said.
“I have chosen to back him because he supports the key issues and values that I consider most important. I believe he is most capable of defending these beliefs as he exposes the liberalism of this present president.”
“I am honored to have the endorsement of Mrs. LaHaye,” Newt Gingrich said in a statement released by his campaign. “She is a proven leader from within the Christian community, and our Faith Leaders Coalition will benefit immensely from her guidance and involvement.”
