S14 Ep9: The Long March of Newt Gingrich: Part Three

  • Aired: 01/16/1996
  • 14:20
  • Rating: NR
In his first congressional campaign Newt runs as a liberal Republican reformer, endorsed by environmentalists. Negative ads by his opponent pierce Newt's thin skin, but by his third campaign he sheds his old politics and unveils a new strategy: "Raise hell. Raise hell all the time." He wins a seat that had been a Democratic stronghold for 25 years.
