Gingrich: I'll need two terms to implement new 'Contract with America'

Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) - On Thursday, just over 17-years after he unveiled the first "Contract with America," former House Speaker Newt Gingrich officially proposed another campaign contract.

Flanked by two huge banners emblazoned with the title "21st Century Contract with America," Gingrich stood alone on stage and spoke to insurance company employees in Des Moines, Iowa. If he is elected president, Gingrich said, he'd immediately begin to act on the new campaign contract. But said he would need two full presidential terms to fully implement it.

Washington (CNN) - Tracking trackers is the order of the day in the Virginia senate race as Republican George Allen runs to recapture the seat he lost in 2006, arguably as a result of the moment that made trackers famous.

Virginia Democrats claim the former governor and senator has something to hide. Meanwhile, Allen's team says it's "disappointing, but not surprising" that Democrats are using the tactic of sending trackers to his events, forcing them to remove them.
