NEWT GINGRICH (GUEST): So several have indicated that they might for example first vote for speaker McCarthy on the first ballot. My hunch is if they did, they would pivot and immediately vote for Jim Jordan. I suspect, except for the couple of people who are nuts who were part of that eight people who betrayed their party, I suspect almost every Republican now understands with the war going on in Israel, the war going on in Ukraine, with the problems we have on the border, this is not a time for the House Republican Party to look childish, silly, and in disarray. And I think the pressure will be great tomorrow to elect Jordan.
