Gingrich claimed a lack of “strict” elections laws in the U.S. could allow Democrats to “steal” the 2024 elections. He made the comments when asked about the GOP’s efforts to secure a “free and fair election” during an appearance on FOX News’s Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.
Gingrich, who would go on to become the U.S. ambassador to the Vatican under former President Donald Trump, stated during his interview with Bartiromo that it was “probably almost impossible” to secure a presidential victory as the laws stand in the U.S.
“I think the only Republican strategy in the long run is to pick issues and win by margins so big that they can’t steal it,” the former House leader added.
Gingrich was the speaker of the House from 1995 until 1999, when Bill Clinton was president.
He did not provide examples or evidence of Democrats tampering with the results of the 2020 election during his interview.
