Mitt Romney VS Newt Gingrich The two candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are both fighting to become the candidate, who is going to fight against Barack Obama at the presidential election. But who are they? Where do they come from, and what will they do better for America? Mitt Romney Willard Mitt Romney was born March 12, 1947 in Detroit, Michigan. He’s an American politician. He was the 70th Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007 and is a candidate for the 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination. He’s married to Ann Romney, and together they have two children. Newt Gingrich Newton Leroy Gingrich was born June 17, 1943 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He’s an American politician, author and political consultant, and like Mitt Romney, he is also a candidate for the 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination. He has been married three times. The first two marriages ended in divorces. He has two children from his first marriage and has been married to Callista Gingrich since 2000. One of the issues that I’ll focus on is healthcare. Romney believes that healthcare is more than just 1/6 of the American economy. He believes that it’s a source of well-being for individuals and families, and he thinks that there are many good things in American healthcare, but with Obamacare things have taken the wrong direction with its high taxes and extended federal control. Romney believes that it’s better to let the states determine their own healthcare systems. Newt Gingrich is, like Mitt Rom-ney, not satisfied with Obamac-are. “We must repeal and replace the left’s big government health bill with real solutions that will lower costs and improve health outcomes.” He believes that Obamacare instead created layers of new taxes, regulations, and bureau-cracies that in the end will make the problems worse. Newt proposes a “Patient Power” plan
