Question of the Day
Gingrich says he never lobbied, cash not an issue
BLUFFTON — Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich says he never lobbied, mainly because he didn’t need the money.
The former House speaker on Tuesday told supporters in South Carolina that he was making $60,000 a speech and didn’t need to earn income from lobbying. He says he was an advocate for causes he supports, such as digital medical records.
Mr. Gingrich has faced questions about the vast network of consulting firms, advocacy organizations and for-profit think tanks he established since leaving Congress in 1999. He is adamant he never lobbied and never worked for causes he didn’t support before cashing paychecks.
During a town hall-style meeting with supporters, he joked he was now giving more speeches for free than ever.
Perry works to improve immigration credentials
AMHERST — Republican presidential contender Rick Perry is working to persuade voters he’s tough on immigration.
And he has a key new supporter to help make that case.
But at least one prominent Granite State Republican says Sheriff Arpaio is an embarrassment.
Mr. Perry has struggled to clarify a Texas law permitting in-state tuition rates for illegal immigrants.
