As other Republicans threw their support behind Hoffman’s momentum, Gingrich argued that the party needed to be more inclusive of moderates if it had a hope of retaking the majority.
He told The Associated Press he was disappointed, and “deeply upset” that Scozzafava endorsed Owens.
“How could she have accepted all that support?” he said, adding later: “I’m very, very let down because she told everybody she was a Republican, and she said she was a loyal Republican.”
Gingrich now backs Hoffman.
Gimme a break. Newt’s a lot of things, but stupid isn’t one of them.
