Newton Leroy "Newt" Gingrich, mais conhecido como Newt Gingrich é um professor universitário, historiador, escritor e político americano. Filiado ao Partido Republicano, ele foi um dos cabeças do partido por muitos anos, se destacando em 1994, quando a sua legenda passou a ter o controle da Câmara dos Representantes pela primeira vez em 40 anos. Gingrich tornou-se o Presidente da Câmara em 1995 e foi considerado a Pessoa do Ano pela revista Time naquele ano.

Desde 1999, com o fim de seu décimo mandato de representante pelo sexto distrito da Geórgia, Newt Gingrich deixou de concorrer a cargos eletivos, e atua apenas como analista político. Ele continua a ser uma personalidade muito influente no Partido Republicano, e seu nome foi um dos favoritos para a candidatura republicana à eleição presidencial de 2012.

„So let me say on the record, any ad which quotes what I said on Sunday is a falsehood.“

—  Newt Gingrich
Context: I want to make sure every House Republican is protected from some kind of dishonest Democratic ad. So let me say on the record, any ad which quotes what I said on Sunday is a falsehood. Because I have said publicly those words were inaccurate and unfortunate and I'm prepared to stand up and — When I make a mistake — and I'm going to on occasion — I want to share with the American people "that was a mistake" because that way we can have an honest conversation.
