COLUMBIA, S.C. — Newt Gingrich received Friday the endorsement of Chuck Norris, who will roundhouse kick anyone who doesn’t vote for the former House Speaker.

Norris made the endorsement on behalf of himself and his wife in a column published by World Net Daily.

“We agree with our friend and governor of the great state of Texas, Rick Perry, when he suspended his campaign and endorsed Gingrich, that Newt ‘has the heart of a conservative reformer,'” Norris wrote. “We believe Newt’s experience, leadership, knowledge, wisdom, faith and even humility to learn from his failures (personal and public) can return America to her glory days. And he is the best man left on the battlefield who is able to outwit, outplay and outlast Obama and his campaign machine.”

In 2008, Norris endorsed former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee in the Republican primaries.

Gingrich responded to the endorsement on Twitter, writing: “Honored to have Chuck Norris’ endorsement. He will make an excellent Secretary of Attack.”
