Newt Gingrich

Trump’s election is a tremendous opportunity to tear down the walls of big government, liberalism, and elitism and set the path for a bold new direction that is once again guided by the will of the people.

Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, is an internationally recognized expert on world history, military issues and international affairs. He is best known as the architect of the “Contract with America” that led the U.S. Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years.

Gingrich has served as a member of the Defense Policy Board and was the longest-serving teacher of the Joint War Fighting course for Major Generals. He also taught officers from all five services as a distinguished visiting scholar and professor at the National Defense University. In 2005, he co-chaired the task force on U.N. reform, a bi-partisan Congressional effort to reform the United Nations.

From May 2011 to May 2012, Gingrich was a candidate for the Republican nomination for President of the United States, winning the South Carolina and the Georgia primaries.

Currently, Gingrich is a Fox News contributor, a senior advisor at Dentons, the world’s largest law firm, and a senior scientist at analytics and advice firm Gallup. He has also published 27 books, including 14 fiction and non-fiction New York Times bestsellers, and he and his wife, Callista, host and produce historical and public policy documentaries.

Gingrich earned a bachelor’s degree from Atlanta’s Emory University and master’s and PhD in modern European history from Tulane University, in New Orleans. Before his election to Congress, he taught history and environmental studies at West Georgia College for eight years.
