Gingrich’s Advice On Republicans Winning In 2018: Toughen Up
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich gave the GOP his playbook on how to keep the House in Republican hands this coming November, saying they have to toughen up and hit back if they want to win.
“We are not tough enough, we’re not fast enough, we don’t think aggressively enough,” Gingrich said Wednesday at the winter meeting for the Republican National Committee. “The truth is, too many Republicans don’t have the nerve to go out to new neighborhoods and new voters. They talk in cost-benefit terms. Well, that’s not going to work if we are serious about growing a stable majority.”
The former Speaker of the House told Republicans to stop complaining about the news medias’ bias and adopt an attack dog mentality when giving interviews with the press. He wants them to treat TV studios like a “war zone” and avoid the trap of believing the interviewer is their friend.
“Don’t complain about the news media. The news media is a fact. The news media is the offensive wing of the other team.
He makes some very good points, especially about the media.
