(CNN) – For the subset of Republicans who viewed Mitt Romney as a Massachusetts moderate unfit for their party's presidential nomination, it could have been the dream ticket: Gingrich-Santorum for president.
Or was it Santorum-Gingrich for president?
(CNN) - As Newt Gingrich laid out his ideas for the future of the Republican Party on Saturday, a light bulb appeared next to his head - quite literally.
The former House speaker and 2012 presidential candidate brought the light bulb and a wax candle as props to the Conservative Political Action Conference.
(CNN) - Hours after Republican Sen. Rob Portman announced he reversed his position on same-sex marriage, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said he won't second guess Portman but he's not entirely embracing the Ohio senator's change of heart, either.
Portman told CNN's Dana Bash that after his 21-year-old son came out two years ago, he came to the conclusion that same-sex marriage "is something that we should allow people to do."
Washington (CNN) - Elouise Wafer's kids thought they had arranged the perfect gift for their mother's 70th birthday.
A former history teacher, Wafer had always wanted to stroll through the White House, a building she had taught about in school for decades.
(CNN) – Saturday morning dawned sunny in Washington, with clear skies and temperatures in the mid-40s – in other words, perfect golf weather.
But President Barack Obama didn’t hit the links, a favorite hobby of his that came under criticism from Republicans in recent days.
(CNN) – Despite being labeled "a sore loser" and "a prick" by Fox News Chief Roger Ailes, Newt Gingrich says things are just fine between him and the man who used to cut his paycheck.
"I talked to him a couple weeks ago. We're fine. We don't have a personality fight," Gingrich said Friday on CNN's "The Situation Room."
(CNN) – Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says he's unhappy with Sen. John McCain for taking aim at Sen. Rand Paul, a fellow Republican, over the Kentucky senator's nearly-13 hour filibuster this week.
"I'm really disappointed in John McCain, and I'm very saddened by it," Gingrich said Friday on CNN's "The Situation Room." "McCain in his younger years was a great maverick. He took on his party all the time."
(CNN) – Roger Ailes has never been known to keep his opinions to himself.
So perhaps it's no surprise the powerful boss of Fox News Channel revealed candid opinions of top political figures – including President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich – during conversations and meetings that were recorded by his biographer Zev Chafets.
(CNN) – After the White House announced it would stop giving tours due to the forced spending cuts, some Republicans gave an alternative proposal: Cancel the golf trips, instead.
Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, is trying to make it illegal for President Barack Obama to use tax dollars for commuting to golf trips. On Tuesday, he submitted an amendment to the continuing resolution that would prohibit the president from using federal funds to travel to or from a golf course until the White House resumes public tours.
