October 19, 2011 at 3:17 PM (PT)
DIAL GLOBAL host NEAL BOORTZ did his show live from LAS VEGAS this week to be on hand to cover TUESDAY night's contentious Republican presidential nominees' debate. BOORTZ got a chance to talk to former House Majority Leader NEWT GINGRICH, who, like fellow candidate HERMAN CAIN, has filled in for BOORTZ on the radio in the past. GINGRICH told BOORTZ, "We've recovered from the all-out media effort to kill our campaign. They said I was the BRUCE WILLIS character in 'The Sixth Sense' and that I was the only guy in the room who didn't know I was dead."
BOORTZ also made news by telling U.S. NEWS AND WORLD REPORT that he has not decided on which candidate to back but is leaning towards endorsing former MASSACHUSETTS Governor MITT ROMNEY, even though he is personally close to CAIN. "I'm still on the fence on who I'll endorse. Right now," BOORTZ said, "I'd probably have to say MITT ROMNEY because more people know his name than HERMAN CAIN's. My final decision on which candidate to endorse is going to be made on one issue alone--whichever candidate has the best chance of beating BARACK OBAMA."
