Hon. Newt Gingrich is one of the foremost economic, social, political and security-focused conservative thinkers alive today. Speaker Gingrich is well-known as the architect of the “Contract with America” that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the U.S. House for the first time in 40 years. As Speaker, he disrupted the status quo and transformed Washington DC. He led Congress to pass welfare reform, the first balanced budget in a generation, the first tax cut in 16 years, and measures to strengthen U.S. defense and intelligence capabilities – an action later lauded by the bipartisan 9/11 Commission. He now serves as an advisor to the National Space Council, a Fox News contributor, a Senior Advisor at Dentons law firm, and a Senior Scientist at Gallup. Speaker Gingrich has published 36 fiction and nonfiction books including 15 New York Times bestsellers.
