Newt Gingrich: Trump, GOP Will Rock in Midterms

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich says the 2018 midterm elections are shaping up for a big GOP win, including the re-election of President Donald Trump.

"This is an America begging to break out, to do things you can’t imagine," Gingrich told members of the at a luncheon on Thursday,

"If we pick up Florida, [Democrats] can’t possibly win the Senate … If we gained seats in the Senate, retained the House and picked up two governors, the moral authority of the Trump White House would grow by a factor of 10."

Gingrich also told the group of about 200 that Trump is making good on promises to jump start the American economy and bring the nation into the forefront of world affairs.

“I don’t know if Donald Trump is in any way a principled conservative,” he said. “But he is the most successful anti-left leader in my lifetime,” he said.

Gingrich is the author of the new book,  published by Center Street.
