I have started watching videos from the earlier days of Newt and Romney.  I wasn’t politically conscious in 1994, so much of this is new to me.

I find the contrasts interesting, including this short clip of Romney running from “the time of Reagan-Bush,” and the somewhat longer clips below regarding the Contract for America.

If the choice comes down to Newt or Romney (as both I and Newt predict), I think this history will come into play, because the electorate will have to decide which candidate they trust when the going gets tough.
