Newt Gingrich Says Democrats Will 'Steal' Virginia if Governor Election is Close
 
Newt Gingrich Says Democrats Will 'Steal' Virginia if Governor Election is Close

"Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has claimed that the Democrats will attempt to "steal" the gubernatorial election in Virginia unless GOP candidate Glenn Youngkin wins by a large margin.

Gingrich replied: "First of all, if it's really tight, they'll steal it. So you can't afford to have a really tight election. You have to win by a big enough margin, they can't steal it.

"Second, if Youngkin wins, which I think he will if everybody turns out to vote tomorrow, this is an earthquake. If Youngkin almost wins, it's an interesting tremor, but it's not going to shake things up."

Gingrich echoed similar statements put out by former president Donald Trump in the run up to the Virginia election in which he urged people to get out the vote in order to make it harder for Democrats to supposedly rig the results.

Trump has continuously pushed the "big lie" that he lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden due to widespread voter fraud, despite having no evidence to back this claim.

"Everything is on the line in this election, and every MAGA voter should strongly support Glenn Youngkin. We must win bigger than the margin of fraud by flooding the polls with those that believe in America First," Trump said in a statement on Monday.

Youngkin, who has appeared to distance himself from Trump's endorsement during the election campaign, also suggested that the Democrats will attempt to overturn the results if McAuliffe loses.

Speaking to Fox News' Mark Levin on Sunday, Youngkin called McAuliffe a "failing politician" over his decision to hire Marc Elias, a high-profile attorney who has worked on a number of notable election challenges for the Democrats.

Levin asked Youngkin if he is concerned that by hiring Elias the Democrats are "going to try to do everything they can to undo" the closely contested election in Virginia.

"This is right out of his playbook. I mean, he wrote it, and this is what a failing politician does when they see the sun setting on their 43-year political career," Youngkin replied."

Democrats Are Using The Same 2020 Election Shenanigans To Overtake Virginia This Year

"Virginia’s hotly contested gubernatorial race is just days away, and with Republican Glenn Youngkin and former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe tied in the polls, the professional left isn’t leaving anything to chance. A McAuliffe defeat is largely considered a bellwether for congressional Democrats in the 2022 midterms.

So how do Democrats plan to ensure a McAuliffe win and a subsequent retention of power in the state and U.S. Senate? By using the same tactic they used in the 2020 national contest: profligate mail-in voting and fake grassroots get-out-the-vote efforts funding by philanthropies and wealthy leftists, a strategy revealed through Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s gift to the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL)."

Judge Dismisses Virginia Mail-In Ballot Lawsuit Ahead of Tuesday’s Election

"A Virginia judge dismissed a lawsuit claiming that Fairfax County improperly accepted applications on absentee ballots, responding to a complaint that was filed late last month, coming as Virginia’s gubernatorial election is scheduled for Nov. 2.

The Virginia Institute for Public Policy filed a lawsuit (pdf) arguing that the Fairfax County Office of Elections accepted applications for absentee and mail-in ballots without residents’ final four digits of their Social Security numbers. They argued that such a practice violates state law.

The county’s elections office responded by saying that state law stipulates that such a lawsuit can only be filed by “any aggrieved voter,” a campaign’s party, or a candidate. The Virginia Institute for Public Policy, a conservative-leaning nonprofit organization, is none of the three, they further said.

Judge Michael Devine on Oct. 29 supported the Fairfax elections office and ruled that the plaintiffs didn’t have standing to file the lawsuit.

“The judge dismissed the case on a technical ground that the Virginia Institute of Public Policy lacked standing to bring the case,” J. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, said in a statement after the ruling. His organization was involved in bringing the lawsuit.

Adams said that despite the ruling, the “merits of the case were not reached,” and said it is “unfortunate that an important election will take place with the registrar of the largest county in Virginia breaking the law. It isn’t fair to change the rules in the middle of the game. Fairfax is the only county breaking the law.”"

Gingrich was a guest here in St louis on the morning drivetime FOX radio channel.

He spoke plainly about how the Democrats have successfully added large amounts of votes to the count in the middle of the night . We all saw it happen in 2020, but are told it was legit.

Well, it wasn't.

Pulling suitcases out after closing and sending watchers home in Philly,
Counting harvested ballots from nursing homes in New York and Wisconsin,,,
Having mail in ballots from multiple people with the same industrial building address,,,,,
Newt also had a prediction about Trump running again.

"When the time comes........,,,,,If he feels healthy enough, he will run,,,; and he will win."

I think we can be assured, that so long as such practices, particularly mail in ballots, the Democrats have a leg up on cheating techniques over the GOP's talents in that process. It's not that the GOP doesn't cheat if they can, they just are not as good at it..

Yes, you can--if you wish.

But do you actually have any substantive rebuttal to his words?

Or just unabated rage?

Yes, it was. The funny part is that the progression of Trump leads early in the evening as election day votes were counted first, with those leads shrinking and possibly disappearing overnight as the early and mail-in votes were counted, was entirely expected and predicted by numerous election experts prior to election day. The Democrats didn't "add votes in the middle of the night." Poll workers simply counted the early votes overnight, which, as expected, were heavily in favor of Biden.
