Dick Armey, the former Republican House Majority Leader, is known as a conservative with a folksy flair. He grew up in a place called Can-do, North Dakota and was the first member of his family to attend college.
Early on as a Congressman, Armey slept on the House gymnasium floor to save money on rent. He spent his 18 years in office advocating for smaller government and lower taxes. In 1994, Armey was one of the primary authors of the "Contract with America," the conservative manifesto that helped the GOP regain control of the House from the Democrats.
Now, in the midst of a heated presidential election, Dick Armey is calling for a third republican revolution, one that brings his party back to basics.
