Reporters Watch Out: Political Prodigy Returns

krohn-4.jpeg Jonathan Krohn, the 14-year-old conservative pip-squeak who caught the attention of former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) after a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference(CPAC) earlier this year, is coming back.

In mid-February, Krohn, dubbed “The Little Conservative” by The New York Times, will again attend CPAC. He’ll have no official speaking role, but has been honing his oratory skills by speaking at Tea Parties around the country.

His upcoming book, Defining Conservatism: The Principles That Will Bring Our Country Back, has sparked praise from Gingrich and syndicated radio host Mike Gallagher, who says: “Any time I am depressed about the state of the country or the future of the modern conservative movement, I consider two words: Jonathan Krohn.”

By the way, he dedicates his book to the late Ronald Reagan, the late William F. Buckley, Jr. and the late Barry Goldwater.

Krohn, who turns 15 in March, is a homeschooled only child who lives in Atlanta with his parents.
