'What Are They For?': Gingrich Blasts Dems' Anti-Trump Message After Latest Defeat
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said Democrats have spent too much time talking about what policies they are "against."
"What are they for?" Gingrich asked.
He said that in the case of former Attorney General Eric Holder, Democrats would have another candidate talking about policies they are "against."
Speculation about Holder being a possible 2020 opponent to President Trump is already circulating.
Gingrich pointed out he has spent a lot of time in liberal precincts of California as well as making speeches in Virginia.
He said Holder intentionally pointed out that he is African-American.
"If all Eric Holder does is mobilize people on an ethnic basis, he won't even get close to the nomination," Gingrich said.
He added that Virginia Gov. Terence McAuliffe (D) is a more centrist option if the Democrats want a 'new' name in the mix.
