GOP Senate primaries set the stage for November elections

  • Donald J. Trump on Twitter:

Rep. Todd Rokita (R-Ind.), who tried to make it clear he was the Trump candidate in the Indiana Republican Senate primary by donning a Make America Great Again hat in one of his campaign ads, fell short of securing the Republican nomination by over 11 percentage points. Trump's political advisers view the event, which will also be attended by home-state Vice President Mike Pence, as a way to project party unity following a bruising primary.

In an interview with us last week, Morrisey believes that could mean Trump will campaign on Morrisey's behalf.

Think: the OH governor's race primary, for example, where former Rep. Dennis Kucinich was trying to paint Richard Cordray, the former head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau appointed by Obama, as too much of a centrist with less progressive views on guns.

The two spoke briefly on Wednesday with the conversation being described as cordial, Politico said, attributing the information to three people familiar with the president's call.

But the broader lesson here is that, in the second year of his presidency and almost three years after that extraordinary escalator press conference in the lobby of a building he named after himself, the author of The Art of the Deal dominates our politics like no figure in recent history.

The rally was coming hours after Trump welcomed home three Korean-Americans who were detained in North Korea and announced plans to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

Renacci became the front-runner with Trump's backing and his personal wealth, which allowed him to pour his own money into the campaign for ads.

The GOP considers Donnelly to be one of the most vulnerable Democratic senators up for election in November. Before his 2012 election, the senator represented a House district that included Elkhart. "My job is not to be a cheerleader for the president, my job is not to be a cheerleader for a party leader or a party". Donald Trump carried the 3rd District by 50 points in 2016 while Mitt Romney carried it by 32 points. His primary opponent, Paula Jean Swearengin, got about 30 percent of the vote. Trump skipped the White House Correspondents' Dinner late last month to rally supporters in Macomb County, Michigan.

"The people who support right to work, they're out working".

OH has always been considered a crucial swing-state. Even Richard Cordray, the progressive who beat poor Dennis Kucinich to win his party's nomination for governor in OH following an endorsement by Sen. Braun will face off against first-term Democratic Sen.

Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown says he is not surprised or anxious about the lower Democratic voter turnout during yesterday's primary election. It's fueled by cable TV coverage of the Trump administration, which exists in a universe much like our own, but where the Democratic Party is led by Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) and Stormy Daniels's attorney, Michael Avenatti. "He'll deliver the negative messages, they can deliver the positive".

President Donald Trump called Don Blankenship after pushing for the one-time candidate's loss in the West Virginia Republican Senate primary, Politico is reporting. Joe Manchin may not be easy to knock off, but Morrissey probably gives Republicans their best shot. State Attorney General Patrick Morrisey won the nomination and will challenge incumbent Sen.

"For me, it's always been about working for West Virginia and that will never change", Manchin said Tuesday night.

This tracks pretty close to Trump's net approval rating among voters.

Pittenger conceded the race, and now Harris will face Democrat Dan McCready - a 34-year-old Marine veteran who party strategists see as fitting the Conor Lamb mold - in a competitive contest in November.

The president's tweet comes after four states held primary elections on Tuesday-Ohio, North Carolina, Indiana and West Virginia. "There was tremendous enthusiasm".
