The Honorable Newt Gingrich
Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich is well known as the architect of “Contract With America,” which led the Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the House for the first time in 40 years. After he was elected speaker, Gingrich disrupted the status quo by moving power out of Washington and back to the American people. Under his leadership, Congress passed welfare reform, the first balanced budget in a generation and the first tax cut in 16 years. In addition, Congress restored funding to strengthen defense and intelligence capabilities, an action later lauded by the bipartisan 9/11 Commission.
Today Gingrich is a Fox News contributor and a senior advisor at Dentons, the world’s largest law firm, with more than 6,500 lawyers in 50 countries and offices in over 125 cities. He advises the firm’s world-class Public Policy and Regulation practice. He is also a senior scientist at Gallup.
As an author, he has published 27 books, including 14 fiction and nonfiction New York Times bestsellers. Gingrich and his wife, Callista, host and produce historical and public policy documentaries. Because of his unquenchable thirst for knowledge, Gingrich has become a highly sought-after public speaker, accepting invitations to speak before prestigious organizations around the world.
