Trey Gowdy went on Fox News and let a secret slip about Donald Trump’s chances in 2020
The 2020 Presidential Election is in full-swing.
And every Democrat is racing to prove they are the one to take down Donald Trump.
But Trey Gowdy went on Fox News and made one surprising prediction about the Democrats’ chances in 2020.
Both former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg boldly predicted they would win South Carolina and make inroads in the solid south.
Trey Gowdy went on Martha MacCallum’s Fox News Channel show and gave his appraisal of these predictions.
And Gowdy laughed them off as pure fantasy.
Fox News reports:
Former U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy isn’t buying Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s assertion that South Carolina could turn blue in the 2020 presidential election.
“I would be willing to bet you, unless it’s a nontraditional nominee on the Democrat side, they are not coming back to South Carolina after they win the nomination. They don’t have a chance in 2020,” Gowdy said Tuesday on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”
“The only way Democrats can win is if the Republican Party is fractured — and that is how we lost our last statewide race,” said Gowdy, 54, a Republican who served in the House from January 2011 until January of this year after deciding not to seek re-election.
Democrats are not winning South Carolina.
No Democrat has carried South Carolina since Jimmy Carter way back in 1976, and that was during a different time.
Some southern states still voted Democrat and Carter was the Governor from Georgia.
O’Rourke, Biden, or anyone else who could win the Democrat nomination for President are so far to the left that they eliminate themselves from contention of winning states like South Carolina the second they clinch the Democrat Party Presidential nomination.
