Newt Gingrich Audio Update: The Job Performance of Top Four States Shows You Why the Washington Media is Wrong about the Republican Party
The leading Democratic governor of our largest state, California, is in deep trouble fighting for his political life. On the other side of the continent in New York, you have evidence that Gov. Cuomo faces calls of impeachment overhis handling of COVID-19 deaths in the states’ nursing homes. So, both Govs. Cuomo and Newsome are now deeply wounded.
By contrast, Gov. Abbott of Texas, the second-largest state, and Gov. DeSantis of Florida, the third-largest state, are doing great. They have great economies. They’re doing well handling COVID-19. They are generally popular. It just strikes me if you’re the party with the great governors doing great things, you’re probably in better shape than the party with really bad governors doing terrible things.
With Memorial Day coming up, Newt spends time with a veteran who’s making a difference. Lt. Col. Dan Rooney. In 2007, he started the nonprofit Folds of Honor, with the mission to provide educational scholarships to spouses or children of wounded or killed military service members.
In July 2012, a gay couple came into Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado asking for a custom wedding cake. The case went to the U.S. Supreme Court where he won by a vote of 7-2. Newt’s guests are Jack Phillips, and Jake Warner, legal counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom.
During the pandemic, the federal government stepped in to assist small business owners with loans. But some of this funding went to Chinese companies. To describe how this happened, Newt’s guest is Emily de La Bruyère, co-founder of Horizon Advisory.
