Newt Gingrich Audio Update: I’m Very Encouraged by Republican Efforts in Georgia

As we enter the voting today in Georgia, I was on Sean Hannity’s radio and television programs last night. On Hannity TV, I was actually sandwiched between President Trump’s rally speech in North Georgia, which I thought was going very well. I thought President Trump was making plenty of key points and had a big crowd. I suspect it will help with turnout. I did check because Democrats always tend to vote early, and Republicans tend to vote on election day. And there was a question, could we generate 600,000 to a million votes on election day, and the answer I got back from a senior person at the Republican national committee who’s been deeply involved in this is yes. So, I’m very encouraged by Republican efforts, and we could have the most honest election in Georgia’s history. So we’ll see tonight. I think this is very close.

As we enter the voting today in Georgia, I was on Sean Hannity radio. And then I did Sean Haredi television last night on the television. I actually was sandwiched in between president Trump’s rally speech in North Georgia, which I thought was going very well. I thought he was making the key points and I had a big crowd and I suspect it will help with turnout. I did check because Democrats always tend to vote early and we tend to vote on election day. And there was a question, could we actually generate 600,000 to a million votes on election day in the answer I got back from a senior person at the Republican national committee who’s been deeply involved in this is yes. There’s evidence on the ground that supports a strong election. They turn out during early voting, there was reduced early in person hours due to weekend closures in rural areas, which remembers where Trump was strongest, which is less of less, which has left us an opportunity among outstanding voters who participated in the general.

In other words, there are a lot of people in the smaller rural counties who did not yet vote, but who did vote in the general. And one of their targets is to in fact, turn out that kind of a vote there. It’s also fair to say that they had an enormous effort underway. In fact, I was deeply impressed. They have for example, in the area that the Trump was in they had reached the average voter 2.7 times by phone and 2.5, eight times by doors. They just had huge, huge turnout. And I think that that’s a very encouraging part of this. So we’ll see tonight. I think this is very close. My guess is that if the Republicans do turn out, if all of these efforts and I did I think three or four different robocalls trying to encourage people to turn out and they did a lot of radio in Georgia. If the turnout works, I think with 8,000 poll workers it’s, we’re going to have the most honest count in Georgia history. And I think it’ll be fascinating to watch. So anyway, I encourage you to watch the news this evening and during the day to day, if you know anyone in Georgia, contact them and urge them to make sure they go vote. Thank you.
