Ex-Ohio State, NFL player Gonzalez wins GOP US House primary

May 11 13:21 2018

Across the board, the Republican turn out was higher in OH, though overall voter turnout was lower than typical primaries.

Support for Democrats in the generic congressional ballot for the 2018 elections has dropped down to a three-point advantage over Republicans and within the margin of error, according to a CNN poll released Wednesday. Trump’s political advisers view the event as a way to project party unity following a bruising primary.

Sprague, 45, was appointed to represent the 83rd District in the Ohio House in 2011, and was elected to the post in 2012. Lewisville residents will also cast their vote in the Justice of the Peace, Precinct 3 Republican race between James Kerbow and William Lawrence.

Braun will now prepare to tackle Donnelly for his U.S. Senate seat, and as part of that effort, Republicans across the state, including Mike Pence, congratulated Braun. But Ohio Democratic Party Chair David Pepper says there was more Democratic participation this year than in the 2016 primary. “The president’s calendar is mapped out with his political priorities in mind”.

The May 22 Primary Runoff Election is still on with early voting starting Monday, May 14.

Indeed, if a candidate doesn’t succeed in the primary election, then there is no general election for that candidate. For more stories like this, visit wksu.org now.

Republican voters in IN selected wealthy businessman Mike Braun over two incumbent congressmen to lead the party against a vulnerable Democrat in the midterm elections, which have Republicans concerned over the possibility of big losses.

The Indiana rally will be Trump’s fourth political-style event in the past two weeks. “Having an unpopular Republican in the White House is a good way to get that turnout boost, but if that’s coming, there wasn’t a preview of that on Tuesday”. In other words, he’s just about the ideal candidate to take on an incumbent Democrat like Sen. That’s not to say they need to be critical of him, but I don’t know that the electorate that comes out on Election Day is going to really be incredibly supportive of Trump. “He’ll deliver the negative messages, they can deliver the positive”.

And keep in mind if Democrats lose even one of the close races in West Virginia, Indiana, Missouri or North Dakota, taking the Senate becomes all-but-impossible.

In West Virginia, Republican leaders confronted the prospect of nominating Blankenship, a polarizing presence in a general election could make it harder for the GOP to topple Manchin. Their top targets are the 10 Democratic incumbents in states Trump won.

“In West Virginia, his one tweet single-handedly swung the dynamics of a race”, Stepien said. But in gubernatorial primaries, Kondik says it often pays to have party connections. Manchin, a centrist Democrat who has voted with the Trump agenda more than 60 percent of the time, is clearly not the worst Democrat in the Senate. “There also was $8 million more spent in the Republican primary than our side”. Because of Moore’s loss, Republican only hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate heading into this fall’s midterms.

Stacey Williams is running without opposition to be the Republican nominee and will face the victor of the May 22 Democratic Party primary in the general election in November.
