Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said in an interview that conservative voters need to head to the polls in the Georgia Senate runoffs in spite of their concerns about election integrity, to deliver a large margin of victory for GOP candidates that would erase any potential machinations on the left.
“If you’re a conservative, you have to vote,” Gingrich told The Epoch Times’ “American Thought Leaders” on Dec. 11. “We need to win by a bigger margin than the left can steal. So we need to get every single conservative out.”
The Senate runoff, which pits Sens. David Perdue (R-Ga.) and Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) against Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, is key for both parties, with control of the upper chamber hanging in the balance. Republicans currently hold a 50-seat majority in the Senate, but if Democrats win both runoffs and also prevail in the contested presidential election, they’ll have control of the White House as well as both chambers of Congress.
“These two runoffs are probably the most important runoffs in American history,” Gingrich said. “They have the potential to change the whole direction of the country.”
If Democrat Joe Biden is sworn in as president and if Ossoff and Warnock win in Georgia, Gingrich said, “Biden will have a signal, he will be very radical.”
“I think this is a huge decision point for the country,” he added.
