Newt Gingrich Has a Take on Why Election Night Turned Out to Be Such a Disappointment 
Rebecca Downs / Townhall Tipsheet
As much as this year's midterm election was expected to be a red wave, that did not turn out to be the case. It certainly was nothing like 1994, when Democrats lost 52 seats in the House. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA), who helped usher in that red wave during then President Bill Clinton's first midterm election, shared his take while on Fox News Channel on Wednesday morning.

During "Fox & Friends," Gingrich acknowledged "we did not do as well in the House and the Senate as I thought we'd do," to which he added "there's a lot to study about what happened." He did, however, stress "we did very well with governors" and that "in that sense it was a huge night for Republican government at the state level." This included in his state of Georgia, where Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) once more beat Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams in a rematch from 2018.
