Newt: 'Blue Wave' of Funding Creating 'Manchurian Candidates'

A "blue wave of liberal funding" from California and New York is pouring into Republican states and districts to help candidates win back control of the House and Senate, and the extra money is creating "modern-day Manchurian candidates," former Speaker Newt Gingrich, writes in a Fox News column.

"The most notable was the race between Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff in my old district, the 6th District of Georgia," Gingrich, now a Fox News contributor, wrote. "This Georgia special election was the most expensive in history."

The campaigns raised about $28 million, Gingrich said, with most, $23.6 million, going to Ossoff. Of that money, 82 percent came from outside Georgia, with most coming from "notoriously left-wing states" such as California and New York.

There is also a "blue wave" of cash coming into Texas, Gingrich said, pointing out Democrat Gina Jones, who is challenging Rep. Will Hurd, R-Texas, has brought in 99 percent of her donations from outside the district.

The reason for the cash influx is because Democrats are "whitewashing their radical voting records," he said.

Gingrich also spoke out about the Georgia governor's race, another that is drawing millions from out of state donors. He backed Republican Brian Kemp as a conservative who is for smaller government and has a "proven record of leadership and service."

Kemp's Democratic rival, Stacey Adams, is a "radical liberal" who backs "Medicaid for All," tax hikes, lax public safety, and gun confiscation, according to Gingrich.

"National Democrats are hoping no one in Georgia notices," he said. "They believe that if they spend enough money on advertising in Atlanta's suburbs, voters will believe Abrams is a moderate, left-centrist."
