Newton Leroy "Newt" Gingrich is an American politician, historian, author and political consultant.

He represented Georgia's 6th congressional district as a Republican from 1979 until his resignation in 1999, and served as the 58th Speaker of the U.S.

House of Representatives from 1995 to 1999.

Gingrich was a candidate for the 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination.

In the 1970s, Gingrich taught history and geography at the University of West Georgia.

During this period he ran twice for the United States House of Representatives before winning in November 1978.

He served as House Minority Whip from 1989 to 1995.

A co-author and architect of the "Contract with America", Gingrich was a major leader in the Republican victory in the 1994 congressional election.

In 1995, Time named him "Man of the Year" for "his role in ending the four-decades-long Democratic majority in the House".

While he was House speaker, the House enacted welfare reform, passed a capital gains tax cut in 1997, and in 1998 passed the first balanced budget since 1969.
