A delegate previously committed to Rick Perry has switched his allegiance and signed on with Newt Gingrich’s campaign in New Hampshire.
Bob Burns, who is listed on Perry’s New Hampshire delegate roster, which was submitted on Nov. 18, will be a deputy state director for Gingrich.
“Anybody who wants to come over, we’re taking with open arms. But him coming from Perry was good for us, along with his stature and different positions he’s held in the state. He will be helping out head a lot of the phone-banking. But this organization is pretty hands-on-deck, so all of us are helping out with everything,” Matt LeDuc, communications director for Gingrich in New Hampshire, told ABC News.
Burns of Bedford, N.H., is the treasurer of Hillsborough County.
The Perry campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
