Gingrich was first elected to Congress in 1978 where he served the Sixth District of Georgia for twenty years. In 1995 he was elected Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives where he served until 1999. In 1999 he was appointed to the United States Commission on National Security/21st Century, the Hart/Rudman Commission to examine our national security challenges through 2025.

Gingrich currently serves with former Senator Bob Kerrey as co-chairman of the National Commission for Quality Long-term Care. He is a member of the Defense Policy Board and serves on the Terrorism Task Force for the Council on Foreign Relations. Gingrich also teaches officers from all five services as a distinguished visiting scholar and professor at the National Defense University.

In 1995 Gingrich was named Person of the Year by Time magazine in for his role as chief architect of the “Contract with America” which in resulted in the Republican party winning the the 1994 mid-term election majority in the House of Representatives, ending 40 years of control by the Democrats.

Gingrich has published several book, and in his most recent, “Real Change: From the World That Fails to the World That Works” (Regnery Publishing, 2008), he argues that while Americans want real change, Democrats can’t provide solutions and Republicans won’t, Gingrich explains what is wrong

This event is co-sponsored with the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, the Princeton University’s College Democrats and the College Republicans. It is free and open to the public.
