Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich predicted a massive red wave for Republicans in this November’s midterm elections and said may even spread to the Democratic stronghold of Minnesota.
“Let me just say, it should say something to people that Trump was in Duluth, Minnesota. An area that would have been historically thought of as not touchable by Republicans,” Gingrich said on “Fox & Friends” Thursday. (RELATED: Newt Gingrich Predicts Red Wave For Republicans In 2018)
“There’s a real chance that if the Democratic Party runs to the left that you’re going to see Minnesota become really one of the bright spots for the Republican Party this fall with Tim Pawlenty getting reelected as governor. Probably picking up at least two House seats and maybe win a U.S. Senate seat. That’s something nobody could have predicted five years ago.”
Gingrich said if the GOP is winning in a state like Minnesota, the likelihood of a blue wave for Democrats is severely diminished.
“There can’t be a blue wave in this country if we’re winning in Minnesota. Let’s just be clear about what’s going on,” he concluded.
