Gingrich Says Over 30 House Dems Could Retire In 2022, Paving Way For GOP Wipeout

Commenting on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s prediction that over 30 Democrats might retire from the House before the 2022 election, which could contribute to a massive victory for Republicans, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said, “You could easily be above 30 retirements before this is over.”

Speaking on Fox & Friends, Gingrich stated, “First of all, the House under Nancy Pelosi is not a very happy place, with all the COVID restrictions, all the voting by absentee, all the different things they are doing, the masking, the police requirements. Members actually  get checked walking on the floor. I walked on the floor recently, I was astonished that to get on the floor of the House, you go through sort of a TSA system with a policeman watching you, as though you are some subservient person who is a danger to your colleagues.”

Gingrich then referred to issues he thought the Republicans should address if they regained power in the House:
