It's Trump's night as his candidates sweep GOP primaries

By: Rick Moran
June 13, 2018

Donald Trump erased all doubts about who owns the Republican Party on Tuesday night as several Trump-backed candidates swept to victory in GOP primaries.

Primaries were held in Maine, South Carolina, Virginia, Nevada, and North Dakota.  Po-Trump candidates win crucial races.  The most notable among Trump's victories occurred in South Carolina, where former governor and current GOP incumbent Congressman Mark Sanford, a bitter critic of the president, went down to defeat.

CBS:

In the most dramatic result in primaries across five states Tuesday, Sanford was the second incumbent House Republican to lose a primary this year – and the latest victim of intense divisions among the GOP in the Trump era.

Though he has a generally conservative voting record, his criticism of Mr. Trump as unworthy and culturally intolerant made him a target of the president's most dedicated supporters, who often elevate loyalty over policy.

Sanford was defeated by state Rep. Katie Arrington, who spent her campaign blasting Sanford as a "Never Trumper."

In Virginia, pro-Trump Senate candidate Corey Stewart easily dispatched several challengers to win the right to face off with the state's incumbent Democratic senator Tim Kaine.

This is good news. I was concerned that more moderate republicans would win the primaries, which would make them tolerable candidates in the elections.

With only Trump supporters as opposition, the chances of an upset in these areas is MUCH higher, as people make a decision not on republicans vs democrats, but on Trump values vs moderates.

Thanks, Stu, you made my day!

You have to stop with the MSNBC talking points. I mean you regurgitate them word for word.

That is a fascinating theory, and the second thread you have made that accusation.

So if I am understanding you, you believe that if someone says something also said on a major news network, they could not have come to the same conclusion on their own. Are you applying this same standard to yourself and Stu?

I think it's common knowledge that the republican party is now the party of Trump.  It's the pottery barn rule.  He broke, so now he owns it.

I don't buy that. Trump hijacked the republican party, and of the republicans I know, at most half are happy with him. I guess if you round up...

It was a hostile take-over but the shareholders voted for their new CEO so it's the party of Trump now. That said, I agree with Freon, this should help in the general. As long as the Dems don't try to counter fringe candidates with our own fringe candidates, it should help. My understanding is there're a lot of first time candidates, majority female, running as Dems and doing well...I'm not entirely without hope. Smiley

I would say it's bad news. Don't underestimate the stupidity of the American voter.

(Maybe the stupidity of the human being is more appropriate. People like populism, despite the obvious harm it causes and its terrible track record.
