The contrast in leadership experience and style between Romney and his closest rival for the nomination, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, is striking.Read the endorsement HERE.
Gingrich, who led Republicans to take control of the House in 1994 for the first time in decades, turned out to be far more capable in campaigning than running the chamber as speaker. Some of the toughest criticism has come from members of his own party.
Following his re-election in 1998, Gingrich resigned his seat rather than run for another term as speaker. Analysts said he didn't have the votes to keep the job. Since then, Gingrich has remained in Washington, cashing in as a "consultant" to clients like mortgage giant Freddie Mac.
Despite his decades as an insider, Gingrich has brilliantly articulated the rage many GOP voters feel against the political establishment. We admire his intellect, but when it comes to leadership, anger doesn't trump a diverse and successful record.
