Newt Gingrich said following the second Republican Presidential Primary debate that the race is essentially over and it is time for the GOP to rally behind President Donald J. Trump for the 2024 election.
Gingrich said nobody will break out of the pack.
“I think DeSantis has a great story in Florida. I think Tim Scott is a wonderful U.S. Senator. I think Nikki Haley has a lot of good things to say, you back out of all of that, look at it, none of them will overtake Trump. Trump will be the nominee,” Gingrich said.
In addition, he said the second debate should be the last.
“Let’s go on, accept the fact that Trump will be the nominee and figure out how we beat Biden, win the Senate and increase our majority in the House,” Gingrich said. “I think wasting the next six months dancing around makes no sense at all because none of these guys can break through.”
Gingrich compared the debate participants to seventh-graders in a “bad play.”
