Gingrich cleans up in South Carolina primary


I wondered how much stock voters would put in Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife claiming that he wanted an open marriage, and CNN’s Dan Gilgoff reported that it may have little:

“To a degree, it will give [evangelical voters] pause, but there’s a much more insatiable appetite to defeat President Obama,” said David Brody, chief political correspondent at CBN News at the Christian Broadcasting Network.

“Gingrich has never claimed to be a patron saint,” Brody said. “People have known for years about Gingrich’s marriage issues. In a way, his well-known history of troubled marriage works for him here.”

I’m not sure what role evangelicals played in the South Carolina primary tonight, but it looks like the accusation didn’t scare off Republican voters. After getting whipped in New Hampshire by Mitt Romney, Gingrich returned the favor tonight.
