State Sen. Stacey Campfield, co-chairman of Newt Gingrichs campaign in Tennessee, announced today he is quitting that position to support Rick Santorum in the Republican presidential race.
The Knoxville Republican made his announcement in a post on his blog. In an interview, Campfield said he believes that conservatives need to unite behind a single candidate and that Santorum is best positioned to defeat establishment Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
Campfields decision comes after a conversation with Santorum earlier this week.
In his blog post, Campfield said he was twisted inside because of my loyalty to Newt, my loyalty must first lie with my country and getting a country with a conservative leader must take precedence to my own personal whims of fancy.

“I....personally prefer Newt and think he would make a great president”
Best part of the blog. The rest is just mindless drivel.
Hmm, IIRC the only successful invasion of Georgia came from Tennessee. On the flip side some historically minded Georgians still seem to bear a grudge against anyone who’s surname starts with ‘S’ and ends with ‘m.’

Thanks for coming out Rick.
It’s the new norm for the Newt people.
Some things are not explainable.. Is Mark Levin ignorant of these facts when he's backing Santorum?
Our BEST chance is GINGRICH/WEST!!!!
If your joke was an allusion to General William Tecumseh Sherman, please note that his last name does not end in an m.
Awww, you ruined his insult.
Ummmm...Campfield should have heard by now the latest in Tennessee after he stuck his finger in the wind. Newt is surging and Santo is bleeding - everywhere.
Gingrich West could not be stopped. It would be a rout.
Oh, if we could get that lucky.
It's Santorum or Romney on Tuesday everywhere but Georgia. If you can't figure out Santorum's a far better choice, you have no right when if Romney or Obama ends up in the White House.
Gingrich's only chance in the race depends on Romney collapsing on Super Tuesday. And, Santorum winning in states like Ohio is going to be necessary for him to have that chance.
If Santorum can hold his own with Gingrich, why wouldn't he be able to do the same with Obama?
The reality is that Santorum is closer to Obama than any other Republican in the most recent Rasmussen poll.
Do you know this weasel?
Yep, you’re right.
Like Santorum, you know what's best for me, right?
Santorum is an amateur and is only a balsawood dolt. IMO
He can't. ..why wouldn't he be able to do the same with Obama?
See above, logician.
“my loyalty must first lie with my country and getting a country with a conservative leader must take precedence to my own personal whims of fancy”
You'd prefer Romney over Santorum?
Given where Santorum is with less money, it is obvious he has more than held his own with Newt.
No. Would you?
I prefer Gingrich over them both by a lot.
