This is a historic cultural fight for the very survival of American civilization, said Gingrich, adding that President Barack Obamas re-election would be a disaster for our children and grandchildren.
Gingrich, a former Speaker of the House, said that Obamas administration offers the most radical leadership in modern American history and that we need an administration which actually thinks religious liberty includes Christians and Jews.

You may have a Rick Santorum-Newt Gingrich ticket. Nobody knows how that tickets going to work out. But I imagine itll end up being something like that.
Pointing to Gingrichs accomplishments in the House, Lorge believes delegates will see that his candidate is the only one with the experience necessary to be the White House.
America is a republic, Lorge said. Were not a democracy. We dont believe in mob rule. We hire people by electing them to represent us. Were a representative democracy, thats what we talk about. Our Founding Fathers were very wise in not having a straight, pure democracy. We have a republic for a reason so that wiser decisions, calm decisions can be made in the best interest of the nation as a whole and that is what Newt Gingrich is all about.
