Gary Busey wants everyone to know that his endorsement of Newt Gingrich at a D.C. holiday party shouldn't be considered his official choice. "It is not time for me to be endorsing anyone at this time! When there are the two final candidates, then I will endorse," Busey said in a statement to The Hill. This past weekend, the Capitol Hill newspaper quoted Busey praising the GOP frontrunner, saying "I've never met Newt but I know what he stands for" and telling them that he was endorsing Newt. As for who may eventually get his nod, we hear that Donald Trump is still mulling a bid. Busey also said "Donald would be great. He's a good friend" at the same party.
