Hotline Sort: The Gingrich Surge

4) The Granite State's largest newspaper , the New Hampshire Union-Leader, endorsed Newt Gingrich on Sunday, no small feat for the candidate who has been gaining ground in national polls in recent weeks. The paper endorsed McCain in 2008 and Steve Forbes in 2000. Romney still is favored to win the New Hampshire primary, but the paper's endorsement of Gingrich is yet another twist in a murky early state picture. 3) Another sign Gingrich is picking up steam: Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., will endorse Gingrich today, Politico reports. He'll become the sixth member of Congress to back the former Speaker so far, but more notably, the first one not from the South. 2) Meanwhile, Romney's first Iowa campaign mailers stress his electability and, in a nod to the social conservatives who have a prominent voice in the caucuses, also say he will "protect our values." 1) Over the weekend, the New York Times took a closer look at the strategy behind the Obama reelection effort. His team is settling on a strategy "that incorporates the combativeness of Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1936 drive, the anti-Congress zeal of Harry S. Truman's 1948 campaign and the disciplined focus of George W. Bush's 2004 blitz against Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts." And volunteers have been laying the groundwork for 2012 with an aggressive 2011 state election effort. Meanwhile, Obama is hitting the swing-state circuit at a record pace.
