Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich predicted that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) would have more success than his senate counterpart, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

Gingrich drew on his past experiences as speaker of the House in an interview with John Catsimatidis on Cats Roundtable on Sunday to predict what McCarthy’s future in the position could be like after a dayslong election in which the California Republican had to make many concessions to secure the speakership. Despite the rough start, however, Gingrich saw the potential for a productive future for McCarthy.

“Narrow margins are not unusual. McCarthy has the same margin that Nancy Pelosi had. But because the Democrats are a machine, she was able to ram through trillions of dollars in spending. Denny Hastert had a 5-vote margin at one point, and he became the longest-serving Republican Speaker in history,” Gingrich explained. “[The holdouts] took advantage. They were prepared to take the heat.”

“Kevin will have greater success in fighting for conservative principles than McConnell will have in the Senate. People will look back and realize that, while it was a tough process of getting there, McCarthy is really a very seasoned, very competent guy,” Gingrich said.

“He has very big ideas which you can see if you go to which lists some 150 major proposals developed … by the whole Republican conference … They have a momentum here that, once they get the engine back on track, the train is going to be pretty impressive,” he added.
