Influential Iowa radio talk-show host Steve Deace is endorsing Newt Gingrich in Tuesday's Iowa Caucus, he announced on Friday.
Deace wrote on his website that he is attracted to Gingrich in part because of his views that judges should be held accountable.
"I have spent the past two years of my radio program educating my audience on this issue, and was a vocal proponent of Iowa’s historic judicial retention election last year, and Newt’s assistance with that effort was vital," Deace, host of The Steve Deace Show, wrote.
Deace wrote that while he does not agree with some of Gingrich's decisions that he made in his personal life, his transparency about those issues won him over.
"... to his credit he has come on my radio program and been very transparent about those things, and has shown humility and a willingness to be transparent in the process," he wrote.
