We look forward to the contribution Rick will make to this importanteffort in the coming weeks and months,” Ms. Burkett said in her announcement. “His wealth of experience, leadership, and belief in the cause will be valuable assets to our effort.”

“It’s a great blessing for me to be able to participate in the effort to elect Newt Gingrich,” Tyler said. ”He shares the values and frustrations of the great majority of Americans during these trying times and will stand as a bulwark against the incursions of big government. Newt will fight the battles and fight to preserve American values as he has for 30 years.
