VIDEO: Conservative Radio Host Backs Newt Gingrich

He may not be considered the most socially conservative candidate in the Republican race for president, but Iowa conservative radio host Steve Deace says Newt Gingrich is the only candidate that can get things done.

"For all his flaws, he understands historically what the left has used the judicial branch to do to this country," Deace told Fox News Saturday

"The first thing I believe must be done is re-establish the rule of law in this country and we cannot have that without the constitutional separation of power that Newt Gingrich has talked about," Deace added.

Deace said he had narrowed his options down to Gingrich and Texas Congressman Ron Paul, but he says Paul's foreign policy is "naïve at best and reckless at worst."

When asked why he didn't choose someone more socially conservative, Deace replied that while those issues are important, "If we wait around for everybody to say how pro life they are and 40 years for the courts to overturn their own Roe versus Wade precedent we'll be waiting for abortion to end in this country until Jesus returns."

"We have to confront an out of control judiciary branch once and for all," Deace said.
