Gingrich: Trump Will 'Tower Over' Rivals in Super Tuesday Contests


By    |   Tuesday, 01 March 2016 06:00 PM

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Tuesday that Republican front-runner Donald Trump would "tower over" his rivals on Super Tuesday.

"Trump will tower over all of them," Gingrich, who served as speaker from 1995 to 1999, told Fox News. "The scale of his victories from Massachusetts and Vermont all the way across to Alaska is gonna be pretty stunning and, really for a guy who's only been in politics for seven months, almost unimaginable."

He said that Sen. Ted Cruz is expected to win his home state, Texas. Gingrich also stopped short of endorsing Trump.

The former speaker, who represented Georgia in the House, said that the Republican establishment will go into high gear to stop Trump from winning the nomination.

"I don't think the frenzy will work — and if it doesn't, then both Trump and the Republican leadership, the traditional leadership, face a big decision."

That decision involves taking the route of the 1968 convention involving Sen. Barry Goldwater — "get beaten badly" — or the 1980 route, which led to Ronald Reagan's "stunning victory," Gingrich said.

"There's no middle ground here — and I think Trump is about half of that decision," he told Fox. "The other half of that decision is gonna be the Republican leadership."
