Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich doubled down on a claim he had made earlier in the day regarding some in the GOP abandoning either of the leading two Republican presidential contenders, Donald Trump or Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
Gingrich warned that by not falling in line behind Trump or Cruz is effectively supporting Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.
“Let’s be honest, if you want to help elect Hillary Clinton, then help elect Hillary Clinton and a radical Supreme Court, but don’t give us any pious baloney that you’re gonna be for some virtuous middle way,” he said.
“There’s no virtuous middle way here — you’re either for the Republican nominee, whether it’s Trump or Cruz, or you’re for the election of Hillary Clinton,” he added. “There is no middle ground here.”
