Last week, Newt Gingrich released his 21st Century Contract with America, composed of 10 specific legislative proposals he would enact if elected President. In the 1994 Congressional campaigns, Republicans not only rode Newt's Contract with America proposals to Republican majorities in Congress. They maintained their House majority for 12 years, after Republicans had only held a House majority for 2 of the previous 74 years.
In 1994, Newt Gingrich campaigned on the "Contract with America;" a promised set of policy plans should he become Speaker of the House. Now in 2011, Gingrich discusses the new "21st Century Contract" on his bid for the White House.
