Last-ditch conservative robo-call pitch: Gingrich for Benson in attorney general race

by Dara Kam | August 23rd, 2010

Holly Benson’s tapped conservative icon Newt Gingrich for a robo-call last-ditch pitch before Tuesday’s primary election.

holly-newtBenson, a former state representative from Pensacola who’s served as secretary of both the Department of Business and Professional Regulation and the Agency for Health Care Administration under Gov. Charlie Crist, is in a tight three-way GOP primary for attorney general against Pam Bondi and Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp.

Gingrich hails Benson as “a proven conservative you can trust,” a swipe at Bondi, who’s never run for office before and released robo-calls from Sarah “Mama Grizzly” Palin today.

Gingrich says Benson is the best candidate to fight President Barack Obama’s health care plan.

The calls started yesterday and will continue today.
