Joe Scarborough Dissects Newt: “He Thought I Was Too Conservative For My District”

Posted by | January 23, 2012 10:26 | Filed under: Top Stories

Joe Scarborough, who worked with Newt Gingrich in Congress, gave an interesting analysis of the former Speaker on Monday’s Morning Joe.

He was a great revolutionary out in the field. And Newt Gingrich was able to organize and put together a winning team. And Republicans took control of the House for the first time in a generation. I mean, I didn’t even believe it. I remember when the results were coming in — and we were talking about this before — and somebody shouted when I won — I wasn’t supposed to win. Of course, just for the record, Newt was working against me the whole time. He thought I was too conservative for my district. Nice call, Newt.

But anyway. I get up on stage and somebody said, “We won the House!” I said you’re kidding me. So I give Newt credit for dragging a lot of people over the line that normally wouldn’t win.
