(USA Features) Former President Donald Trump has been in consultations with several top Republican figures to devise a reprise of a winning strategy employed by the party in the 1990s to retake control of the House for the first time in 40 years.
The “Contract With America,” devised by then-Republican Minority Leader Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), was widely credited with returning the party to power in the House while making gains in the Senate for the first time in decades.
Now, says Mark Meadows, Trump’s final chief of staff, the former president wants to revive it to help Republicans retake Congress next year.
“I’ve been talking to Speaker Newt Gingrich, Lindsey Grahm, the president. We actually met together to talk about a path moving forward that’s focused on policy that everybody can come together on. You may remember back in the 1990’s there was a Contract for America,” Meadows noted in an interview with Just the News.
“Most people don’t remember what those 10 points were, but what we’re doing is looking at something like that. We won’t call it a contract,” he said, adding that “we’ll be working on an America first agenda that actually sets the narrative for honest debate leading into 2022.”
News of a new compact with voters comes as the former president told conservative radio host and podcaster Dan Bongino earlier this week he was going to revive his MAGA-style campaign rallies.
“We’ll do one soon,” he said.
Last month, Trump said he would be traveling to Alaska to help unseat GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski after she voted to impeach him in January.
“I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be — in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator,” Trump said in the statement.
