Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Republican front-runner Donald Trump will “tower over” his rivals all across the country on Super Tuesday.
Gingrich said Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who is expected to win his home state, has a chance to emerge as the most likely alternative to Trump and win more delegates than Florida Sen. Marco Rubio on Tuesday.
“But Trump will tower over all of them,” Gingrich told Fox News on Tuesday. “The scale of his victories from Massachusetts and Vermont all the way across to Alaska is gonna be pretty stunning and, really for a guy who’s only been in politics for seven months, almost unimaginable.”
Gingrich said there will be a frenzy among the Republican establishment to stop the billionaire from winning the nomination. “I don’t think the frenzy will work, and if it doesn’t, then both Trump and the Republican leadership — the traditional leadership — face a big decision.”
Republicans can take this campaign down the Barry Goldwater path and “get beaten badly,” Gingrich posited, or be like Ronald Reagan and “win a stunning victory.”
