Gingrich Promises New Contract

Newt Gingrich said that he will offer a new "Contract With America" similar to the 1994 document that helped him become the first Republican House speaker in 40 years, Bloomberg reports.

He said that he would ask Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) to join him with an agenda that a Republican Congress would pass and a Republican president would sign into law.

Said Gingrich: "If we had a contract in the fall of 2012 and we had an election on core principles, we would have a mandate on the very first day."
