Newt Gingrich's campaign has announced that Kiron Skinner, a Carnegie Mellon University professor, will be the national co-chair for its Women with Newt Coalition -- joining  his wife and two of his daughters in the group that is "spearheading women's outreach leading up to Super Tuesday and the general election," according to a Gingrich release.

Skinner is associate professor of social and decision sciences and director of CMU's Center for International Relations and Politics.

"I've been a supporter of Speaker Gingrich for a long time," she said, according to the release. "I've seen him in numerous professional circumstances and have been extremely impressed with his command of complex and overlapping issues that are especially pressing to women — national security, the economy, and education," said Skinner, who is also a Hoover Institute Research Fellow.

The other leaders of the coalition are Callista Gingrich, Sue Lynch, Jeri Thompson, Gay Hart Gaines, Linda Upmeyer, Kathy Gingrich Lubbers, and Jackie Gingrich Cushman.
