Appearing on the Sean Hannity radio show, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich laid into Bannon’s efforts to launch an outright civil war within the Republican Party, describing it as “stunningly stupid.”

As The Hill notes, Gingrich instead suggests that Bannon should dedicate his fundraising efforts to supporting mainstream candidates in states like Missouri and West Virginia in order to assure a larger Republican majority in the Senate for the last two years of Trump’s first term.

Gingrich pushed back on Hannity’s nationally-syndicated radio show Tuesday when asked about Bannon’s comments.

“The point I would make as a strategist is you got 10 Democrats up next year in states Trump carried,” Gingrich noted. “You have six Democrats up next year in states Trump carried by a huge margin. Now you take the amount of money Bannon is going to raise. If he spent that money in North Dakota, Montana, Indiana, Missouri, West Virginia — the fact is you would have such a big Republican majority, you’d pass the stuff you guys want to pass.”

“Creating a civil war inside the Republican Party may feel good, but I think as a strategy, it is stunningly stupid. I’m just being really honest,” he added.

Of course, the criticism from Gingrich comes after Bannon appeared on Fox News with Hannity vowing to, among other things, “challenge every Republican incumbent except for Ted Cruz” in the upcoming mid-term election cycle.
