When Newt Gingrich authored the first Contract with America in 1994, it helped lead to a seismic political shift in Washington and paved the way for Republican victories in Congress — after almost five decades in the minority.
Now, in an exclusive article for Newsmax magazine, the former House speaker reveals what a new "Contract with America" must offer and how it can take back Washington.
The effect of the first Contract was stunning. In 1994, it played a key role in the GOP gaining 9 million new votes over 1990 and winning 54 House seats — giving it control of the lower chamber for the first time in 40 years.
Fast forward to 2010 and Gingrich again is calling Americans to action by revealing a proposal for a new Contract with America.
For the first time, Speaker Gingrich outlines what a new Contract should say and how it can re-shape America — in this exclusive cover story.
In this special report, Gingrich explains the key to a GOP comeback: The GOP needs to become an alternative party, not an opposition party.
Best-selling author Gingrich writes in Newsmax magazine: "A contract in September 2010 would be a powerful unifier for all those who are tired of the corruption and waste of Washington and the alien views of the secular-socialist coalition seeking to radically change America."
Newt Gingrich is one America's most thoughtful conservatives — one touted as a top-tier presidential candidate. Agree or disagree, you must listen to Newt Gingrich's ideas.
