Chuck Norris, the martial artist-actor famous for playing "Walker, Texas Ranger" and more recently for being an Internet meme, has recorded a robocall for Newt Gingrich.

The robocall is going out to voters in Alabama and Mississippi, which are holding their primaries on Tuesday.

"As my wife Jean and I watched the GOP debate, we were trying to decide which of the candidates would be best to do head-to-head combat with President Obama," says Norris in the call. "Now, I didn't say hand-to-hand combat, even though I think they would win there too. Jean and I decided that Newt Gingrich would be the best man to beat President Obama."

Norris endorsed Gingrich in January, describing the former House speaker as the man best "able to outwit, outplay and outlast Obama and his campaign machine."

At the time, the Gingrich campaign tweeted about the endorsement, saying Norris would make an excellent "Secretary of Attack."
