In 2009 Gingrich committed a grave error in political and philosophical judgment whenhe endorsed pro-abortion Republican candidate Dede Scozzafava in a specialcongressional election for New Yorks 23rd District.
“Scozzafava's candidacy is also reported to have triggered a deep divide among HouseRepublicans, with some of the most conservative members refusing to support her campaign.“But Gingrich, who served as Speaker of the House from 1995 to 1999, wants to unite the party.He sees Scozzafava and the Upstate special election – the only House race in the nation this fall --as the best hope for Republicans to start a comeback and regain control of Congress.“Gingrich is apparently willing to overlook Scozzafavas support for same-sex marriage and abortion rights.“The Republican Revolution in 1994 started very much like what we see today, Gingrich said in hisstatement. Like then, our country is reeling from misguided liberal policies, high taxes and out-of-control spending. This special election in New Yorks 23rd Congressional District could be the first election of the new Republican Revolution, but we need the momentum to get it started.” (Mark Weiner, “Newt Gingrich endorses Dede Scozzafava in NY-23 House race,” The Syracuse Post-Standard,www.syracuse.com
