With the 2022 Midterms a week away, my guest today is Newt Gingrich. The former speaker of the house and Time Magazine's 1995 "Man of the Year" led a revolution in 1994 as the co-author and architect of the contract with America. Under his leadership republicans swept the election, ending four decades of democratic control of the house. Two decades later, Newt remains a force in US politics though his speaking, writing, and his production company Gingrich360. In our conversation we focus on how political issues percolate to the top and become primary drivers of election outcomes, his thoughts on the upcoming midterms, and finally the US’s current standing as a world leader.
