OK, I pretty much said my intro in the headline. Here’s an excerpt from the story:
Former S.C. First Lady Jenny Sanford is not a Newt Gingrich fan…
(Mrs.) Sanford said voters need to consider at Gingrich’s personal history that includes three marriages with his last one ending after he was having an affair with his current wife, Callista. Gingrich’s poll numbers have spiked after a strong showing in Monday’s debate in Myrtle Beach.
“It does call into question his character on a personal side,” (Mrs.) Sanford said. “As a voter, I encourage people to look at both sides, the personal side, and if you’re going to overcome somebody’s moral failings or infidelities, you also have to see where they fit ideologically, and how much their rhetoric meets their reality and in my mind, Gingrich falls short on both fronts. So he wouldn’t get my vote.”
She said a candidates personal history has an impact on the job they can do in office.
“I think it comes down to the simple question of character,” she said.
And that’s something she knows about. Hear her.
