“All 50 states could be in play” in the general election was the conclusion of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

In a live broadcast posted to his Facebook page Monday, Gingrich first discussed Tuesday’s Indiana primary, referring to it as Sen. Ted Cruz’s last stand.

“For Cruz, it really is the last stand,” he said, after noting that polls show the Texas Republican running behind Donald Trump in double-digits. “It’s as if the Alamo had moved north. If he can’t win tomorrow he has no practical case for carrying on the campaign.”

Gingrich added that the way the GOP primary season is going, Trump could easily capture 1,500 delegates before the convention.

Then he looked ahead to the general election, where he saw problems for the Democratic presidential front-runner.

“Hillary Clinton represents all of the elements of Washington DC that people are in rebellion against,” he said. “I think a lot of the millennials who were voting for Bernie Sanders are not going to vote for Hillary Clinton. I think they think she’s not honest. I think they’re bothered by her scandals with the Clinton Foundation, her scandals with her email server.”

Gingrich, who was a 2012 GOP presidential candidate, said 2016 will be unlike any other election year.

“I think it’s important this year because of the unique moment in time and because of the uniqueness of Donald Trump to erase all of our thinking about what kind of states could be in play,” he said. “I think if Trump runs as aggressive campaign in the general election as he has done in the primaries all 50 states could be in play.
