If former House Speaker Newt Gingrich does run for president, former South Carolina GOP Chairman Katon Dawson will likely be the former House Speaker’s chief strategist in the state.

“If he runs, I’ll be with him,” Dawson told Hotline On Call. “I’m trying to encourage him to.” 

Gingrich also echoed the one-time candidate for RNC chair’s praises, saying there was “no question” he would be his top adviser in the crucial early state.

“I think, frankly, having Katon Dawson’s help is an enormous asset,” Gingrich said of his South Carolina chances.

Dawson wasn’t able to support a candidate during the 2008 campaign, when he was head of the state Republican party, but in 2000 backed George W. Bush over Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in their contentious face-off. And more than 10 years later, he’s relishing his ability to make a pick, calling Gingrich the best Republican candidate to go toe-to-toe with President Obama intellectually.

“I think he fits pretty well with South Carolina ideologically,” said Dawson. “Me and a team are going to work for someone we think can really change America.”
