Newt Gingrich has big news: He’ll be co-chairing the top organization supporting President Donald Trump.
The press release announcing the move went out earlier today. It reads as follows:
Great America Alliance, the leading issue advocacy organization supporting the agenda of President Donald Trump, announced today former Speaker Newt Gingrich will now serve as a co-chairman of the group. Gingrich was one of the most effective voices supporting Trump on the campaign trail, and his experience in forming and successfully promoting transformative federal policies in Congress provides him a unique perspective that will be invaluable in the policy battles ahead.
“The election of President Trump represents a watershed moment for the American people,” Gingrich said. “I am excited to continue my strong support of the president, and I will do all I can in the critical months ahead to support his efforts to grow jobs, fix immigration, shrink government and return power to the American people.”
Gingrich joins Rudy Giuliani who signed on with the group last week, and the two high-profile national leaders will be a dynamic tandem driving public support for the president’s agenda.
“Winning the election is one thing. Getting the agenda through is a second thing, and we can already see that there are going to be obstacles in the way,” said Giuliani in a recent Politico story about the effort. “Democrats are going to fight — and on some of them, they’re going to fight to the death.”
In 2016, the Great America Alliance team helped to lead Great America PAC, which was the largest and most effective pro-Trump Super PAC, raising and deploying $30 million in support of the president’s candidacy.
“We are extremely proud to have Speaker Gingrich help lead our team,” said Eric Beach, a founder of the Alliance. “His experience in advancing effective federal policy on a large scale is unmatched, and as one of the most effective voices supporting the president on political landscape, it’s an honor to have him join our team.”
Great America Alliance is a 501(c)4 research and issue advocacy organization whose mission is to advocate for a stronger economy, a more secure nation, and a society with less government intrusion and more freedom for American citizens.
