Newt Gingrich is urging GOP governors to turn what he calls "the rejection of the left" into "the replacement of the left" by enacting conservative, transformational policies in the states.
The former House speaker and possible 2012 presidential candidate is speaking to the Republican Governors Association conference later Thursday.
He will announce that he plans to hold five Internet seminars to flesh out steps governors can take to make what he calls "transformational change."
Among them: requiring the jobless to take training programs in return for unemployment compensation, moving toward replacing President Barack Obama's health care law, and paying good teachers more while cutting loose bad ones.
