In a one-on-one interview with The Brody File, Newt Gingrich says he can fulfill the promises he’s making to evangelicals because, “I think one of the differences between me and the other candidates is that I have organized very large projects… so I think that my ability to organize and orchestrate things would be vastly greater than a normal politician.”
The interview was done Tuesday morning in Tampa, Fla. Watch the clip below along with the full transcription.

Some may scratch their heads wondering how and why Newt Gingrich could be resonating with a wide swath of evangelicals but it’s a fact. That was proven to be true in South Carolina and if he wins in Florida, it will be in large part to evangelicals who are working tirelessly behind the scenes to spread the good word about Newt. There will be a big pastor conference call this week and many more evangelical type events including some church appearances.
If you want to understand specifically why many evangelicals are flocking to Newt (excuse the pun) read my detailed analysis here.
Newt on Promises to Evangelicals.
David Brody: You’ve made some promises to the pro-life community, and evangelicals broadly. How would you be different from other presidents who have made some of these similar promises? I think of George Bush in 2004. He went and did Social Security instead of the Federal Marriage Amendment. How would you specifically be able to accomplish some of these promises that maybe other presidents haven’t?
Newt Gingrich: I think one of the differences between me and the other candidates is that I have organized very large projects. I have organized the Contract for America, 350 House members. We did 10 major projects in 93 days, the balanced budget amendment, welfare reform, big things.
So, I think that my ability to organize and orchestrate things would be vastly greater than a normal politician. And I think also, that you want to be able to move the country forward on several fronts at once. So I would see a very important issue in the question of using the 14th amendment to define personhood could be moving in parallel with an effort to abolish Obamacare, and an effort to cut taxes and create jobs.
And there’s no reason that 535 elected members in the House and Senate can’t do three or four things in parallel and not just wait for them to come.
