Newt Gingrich Predicts Kamala Harris Will Face Off Against Trump in 2020

On Friday night, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich weighed in on potential 2020 candidates.

Gingrich began by reacting to speculation that Hillary Clinton isn’t ruling a third run for the presidency, saying it’s a “nightmare” for red state Democrats running for reelection in the upcoming midterms.

He acknowledged how his party has occasionally gone through cycles where they’ve been “terminally insane,” but said Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and her DNA test trying to prove her Native American ancestry is “beyond imagining” and said the timing of it was “terrible.”

Laura Ingraham then asked “what the heck happened” to the Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) who used to be moderate and work with Republicans.

“I thought he was pretty interesting,” Ingraham told the panel. “He was more of a Bill Clinton Democrat and then… he’s different now.”

When asked if he thought Booker can united the Democratic Party, Gingrich dismissed the question by pointing to his “Spartacus” moment at the Kavanaugh hearings.

“I personally think it’s gonna be Kamala Harris,” Gingrich told Ingraham. “I’m going to stick with that unless she doesn’t run. I think an African American woman, a former Attorney General from California just has enormous resources and I think she clears the field.”

“And the Obamas- very close with her,” Ingraham added.
