Gingrich: GOP “is incapable of competing” if Hillary runs in 2016

"Trying to win that will be truly the Superbowl," Newt said VIDEO

Topics: Video, Newt Gingrich, Hillary Clinton, 2016 Elections, meet the press, Republicans,

Republicans right now are not much of a match for Hillary Clinton should she decide to run for president in 2016, Newt Gingrich said.

“Every Republican should focused on what we just talked about,” Gingrich told David Gregory on Meet the Press. “I mean, if their competitor in ’16 ia going to be Hillary Clinton, supported by Bill Clinton, and presumably a still relatively popular President Barack Obama, trying to win that will be truly the Superbowl. And the Republican party today is incapable of competing at that level.”
