Newt Gingrich: Joe O’Dea will beat Michael Bennet in November

By Matt Connelly

Conservative icon Newt Gingrich is predicting a Joe O’Dea win in November in his race against radical Democrat Senator Michael Bennet.

In an op-ed on Fox News, Gingrich says, “There is a real possibility Joe O’Dea will be the big surprise winner in Colorado on Nov. 8. 

The Colorado race’s parallel may be the 2021 New Jersey State Senate race, in which truck driver Ed Durr Jr. spent $2,300 to defeat former State Senate President Stephen Sweeney.

Durr was an independent truck driver who got mad because New Jersey would not issue him a concealed carry permit (even though he met all the requirements).

With no disrespect intended to Durr, it was clear he did not win because of the muscle of his campaign. In fact, it is likely most of the people who voted for him were not exactly sure who he was. They were sure who the president of the New Jersey Senate was – and they were sure they wanted to throw him out. It became a “not that guy” campaign.”
