Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich responded to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, who said on Tuesday night on CNN’s John King that Mr. Gingrich would never become President of the United States. 

“There is something I know. The Republicans, if they choose to nominate him that’s their prerogative,” said Congresswoman Pelosi. “I don’t even think that’s going to happen.”

Mr. Gingrich appeared on The Washington Times affiliated radio program “America’s Morning News” and forcefully responded to Rep. Pelosi. 

“There’s almost a level of hysteria about the prospect of somebody who really wants to change Washington,” said Mr. Gingrich to host John McCaslin.

“I have a simple challenge for Speaker Pelosi…you know, put up or shut up. I mean, I have no idea what she’s talking about. I don’t think she has any idea what she’s talking about, but bring it on,” he said.

“My life has been looked at by lots of people and I’ve been around a long time. And I just think that when you are a left-wing Democrat, the prospect of a Gingrich presidency is really sort of like a nightmare,” Mr. Gingrich added.
