Newt 2012 County Co-chairs Thank Edgefield County for Victory
web posted January 25, 2012
On behalf of the Newt 2012 campaign, we would like to thank the voters
of Edgefield County for their outstanding support for Newt Gingrich in
Saturday's Republican presidential primary. Newt’s 60 percent of the
vote in Edgefield County was the highest percentage vote received by
any candidate in any county in South Carolina.
Thanks to everyone who made calls, put up signs, sent emails and spoke
up in support of Speaker Gingrich.
It is most impressive that precincts throughout Edgefield County stuck
together in their strong support for Newt. Sticking together and
sending a united message is good for our county. For example, Newt
received 61% in Merriwether 1, 64% in Edgefield 1, 59% in Johnston 2,
61% in Westside, 65% in Northside and 60% in Trenton.
In addition, the turnout of 3489 voters far exceeded the 2008
republican presidential primary turnout of 2521 voters. Even if Newt
was not your first choice, thanks for getting to the polls and voting.
Well done Edgefield County.
This election is far from over. The next primary will be held in
Florida on January 31st. We would encourage all Newt supporters to
contact their family and friends in Florida and urge them to support
Newt Gingrich in the upcoming election. For further information, they
may go to newt.org.
Thanks again to the voters of Edgefield County.
Tom Plowden and John Pettigrew
Edgefield County Co-chairmen, Newt 2012
