Tuesday’s marquee race aims to sweep South Carolina, where two Republicans face Trump-backed challengers, and Nevada, where Republicans dominate many Democratic seats in the November general elections. It is done in.
Voters in Maine and North Dakota have also participated in the vote, hoping that Texas will win the Rio Grande Valley seat in Democratic Filleman Bella, who resigned in March.
The primary election days are longer, but there are many dramas on Tuesday. This is a noteworthy point.
Confrontation with Trump in South Carolina
Representatives of Tom Rice and Nancy Mace crossed former President Donald J. Trump on the first day of 2021. January 6 Assault on Parliament Building.. Mr Rice was probably the biggest surprise vote in favor of impeachment — as a conservative in a very conservative district, he was endangering his political career.
Mr. Mace voted against the impeachment, but in his first speech to Congress in January, the House of Representatives said it needed to: “Accountability to the President” For the attack of the Capitol.
So Trump endorsed two major challengers: Russell Fry State Congressman for Rice and Katie Allington for Mace.
In the case of Mace, the world of playing cards is divided. Mr. Trump’s first UN ambassador, Nikki Haley, and one of his chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, are both from South Carolina and are helping new students in their current positions.
In other words, in part, Mr. Arlington’s track record is poor. In 2018, she lost to Democrat Joe Cunningham in November after defeating then-representative Mark Sanford in the Republican primary after blaming Mr. Trump. (Cunningham, who lost to Mace in 2020, hopes to be back this year with a long-term bid to defeat incumbent governor Henry McMaster.)
Republicans are worried that Tuesday’s Arlington victory could jeopardize seats extending from Charleston to the rich South Carolina coast.
The road to victory for Mr Rice on Tuesday will be quite difficult, but he opposes the impeachment vote. “Keeping the Constitution is the foundation of the Republican Party’s foundation. Keeping the Constitution, and that’s what I did. It was a conservative vote,” he said in a June 5 interview on ABC’s “This Week.” “There is no doubt in my heart,” he added.
California may have more seats, but no state can win as completely as Nevada. Three of the four seats in the State Capitol are rated as Tosap, and all three are currently held by the Democratic Party. Other Tosap races include the Senate seats held by Democrat Catherine Cortez Mast and the Governor held by Democrat Steve Sisorak. Republican sweeps will do great damage not only to narrow control over Democratic parliament, but also to their chances in the 2024 presidential election when Nevada is near. side.
But first, Republican voters need to screen out a huge number of candidates for each position. Joe Lombard, Sheriff of Clark County in Las Vegas, likes to challenge Mr. Sisorak with a Republican nomination. He has the support of Mr. Trump and reflects Mr. Trump’s words in his pledge to “regain our condition.”
Eight candidates are vying to challenge Cortez Mast, but former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxal, who lost to Sisorak in 2018, is clearly supported.
Democrat Dina Titus is also competing for eight Republicans to challenge her, including former House member Cresent Hardy. But Republican leaders and the world of Trump are equally supportive of Colombian-American immigrant Carolina Serrano, party third member Elise Stephanik of New York, and It has the support of Laksalt and Richard Grenell. , Former national security official of the Trump administration.
Five Republicans want to challenge Democratic Senator Susie Lee. Among them, real estate lawyer April Becker has raised the most money to date and is backed by House Republican leaders Kevin McCarthy, Stephanique, Haley and Laksalt. ..
The potential Republican challengers to Democrat Steven Horsford are most clearly divided between Trump’s fringe and the party’s mainstream. Insurance agency Sam Peters is backed by far-right Arizona parliamentarians Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs. Tied to a radical group, And right-wing rocker Ted Nugent. Annie Black, a member of the Diet who will face Peters in the primary, is more mainstream.
Forerunner brewing in South Texas
When Mr. Vera decided to resign from the House of Representatives instead of serving the rest of his term, he probably made the stake he was making for a special election to fill his seat for the rest of the month. I did not know.
Republicans are about to issue a statement, pouring money into the traditional Democratic Lower Rio Grande Valley district to support Myra Flores. She raised 16 times the amount recorded by her closest democratic competitor, Dan Sanchez.
Flores’ victory will be declared by the Republicans in November as a sign that the Democrats will get worse.
The 34th district of Texas has been redrawn due to the overwhelming democratic general elections. But the Republicans want the battlefield to move just west to District 15.
Republicans support Monica de la Cruz for the race. As Tuesday’s special elections progress, they could also invest heavily in the next seat in the West. In District 28, longtime moderate Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar appears to be slightly leading the progressive challenger. , Jessica Cisneros, Ask for recount with a thin spill like a razor..
Competition for Medicaid in Maine
The northeastern tip of the country was not known for its naive politics until 2010 when Paul LePage, a Republican like Trump’s predecessor, took over the governor. His Democratic challenger creates and votes for an independent candidate who has sucked enough votes from anyone who was supposed to win him in multiples.
He retired from the Governor’s Office in 2018 and was replaced by Democratic Governor Janet Mills, who embarked on the expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.
LePage rejected the expansion six times before it was passed by a voter vote in 2017. Still, he ignored the voter’s will and refused to implement the extension. In his absence, he said he would decide whether to challenge Mills, depending on whether he expanded Medicaid in a cost-effective way.
Currently he is seeking a comeback and there is no major enemy to stop him.
In the north of the state is Jared Golden, one of the country’s most endangered House Democrats. He has repeatedly rebelled against Democratic leadership to show his true identity as a centrist. He was the only Democrat to vote against President Biden’s extensive social safety net and climate change bill Build Back Better, and last week voted against a series of Democratic gun control measures. ..
Republicans believe they can beat Mr Golden anyway. Former house member Bruce Polykin, who lost 3,509 votes in 2018, has raised a lot of money and now has more cash than Golden. But Mr. Polykin first needs to meet a major challenger, Elizabeth Caruso, a local civil servant in a small caratunk in Maine.
