Saying "these guys work three days a week", Bannon threw McConnell and Co. under the bus for failing to advance the president's agenda, to include repealing Obamacare, passing tax reform and an infrastructure bill. It's becoming a de facto litmus test in Bannon's recruitment.

"There's a coalition coming together that's going to challenge every Republican incumbent except Ted Cruz".

Bannon is recruiting anti-establishment Republicans to challenge GOP held seats in 2018.

Bannon is also exploring gubernatorial and House races.

Steve Bannon is focused on pushing out every establishment Republican in Congress. "It took us a long time to get here". "There's no magic wand we can wave and blow up this establishment", he said soberly.

"That's what you saw in Alabama", he said, "where they came in with Luther Strange with $32 million to destroy Judge Moore - you saw what the base thought of them. the base totally rejected them".

"There's a new game in town".

"We're going to go after them", he vowed.

The perspective from Gingrich comes after Bannon, who resigned from his White House post on August 18, declared on October 9 in his own interview with Hannity on Fox News that he is looking to challenge every sitting Republican lawmaker with the exception of Sen.

Gingrich pushed back on Hannity's nationally-syndicated radio show Tuesday when asked about Bannon's comments. You have to have a sense of urgency.

But, he affirmed, owing to "the grit, determination and courage of the American working men and women, we're going to win".
