Former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue said he's joining the leadership team for the presidential campaign of Tim Pawlenty. Perdue had been a national co-chairman for fellow Georgian Newt Gingrich. Meanwhile, Gingrich said he’s staying in the race despite a mass exodus of his top campaign staffers.
Former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue says he'll back Newt Gingrich if he seeks the Republican nomination for president. Appearing at a Georgia Republican dinner Monday night, Perdue told reporters that the former U.S. House speaker "would make a great president."
