Gingrich’s sister supports Obama

Candace Gingrich-Jones (above, from a recent appearance on the Rachel Maddow Show), the openly gay half-sister of former House Speaker and leading GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, says she will back President Barack Obama’s re-election bid. Gingrich-Jones, a director at the Human Rights Campaign, said that she and her half-brother are "mutually respectful" but hold different views on gay rights issues.
