Former Rep. Bob Livingston, R-La., addressed a small crowd in Charleston, S.C., on Friday, acting as a surrogate and supporter of the former House speaker. Livingston was gently breaking the news that Gingrich would not be speaking to the group after all. Asked by reporters why Gingrich was a no-show, Livingston was surprisingly candid.
“Newt is volatile, to say the least,” he said — not the optimal endorsement for a presidential candidate who has been assailed by his Republican rivals as a chaotic and disorganized leader.
