Trump congratulates Republicans after a night of successful primaries

Trump congratulates Republicans after a night of successful primaries

Pittenger's loss surprised national and local Republicans alike, but early reactions to the three-term congressman's loss pointed to an "anti-establishment GOP vote that came out big tonight", said Brad Crone, a campaign consultant who's worked with Democrats and Republicans in the state.

Don Blankenship, an ex-convict with a penchant for racially insensitive language, lost the West Virginia Republican Senatorial primary Tuesday. Upper Big Branch had made Blankenship the face of greed and recklessness for many West Virginians. Todd Rokita and Luke Messer.

Not if the person saying them is someone who will support the president's agenda. The CEO of automotive products firm Meyer Distributing and a former state representative, Braun prided himself on being a businessman who isn't a creature of Washington.

It's one of many nationwide races that will set the stage for a dramatic midterm election this fall. "Even what happened just yesterday, I'd also like to recognize president Trump for weighing in on this race".

President Trump is sending a plan to Congress that calls for stripping more than $15 billion in previously approved spending, with the hope that it will temper conservative angst over ballooning budget deficits. The tweet comes after the three primary elections in West Virginia, Indiana and Ohio. Mr. Donnelly is another vulnerable Senate Democrat this year, and Mr. Trump is scheduled to campaign against him on Thursday.

In the Democratic primary, Manchin received about 70 percent of the votes in his race against Paula Jean Swearengin.

IN and West Virginia are particularly inviting targets for Republicans seeking to flip a Democratic seat, given Trump's margins of victory in those states and the party's dominance in state government. Upon his release, he started to portray himself as the next Donald Trump, indeed as more Trump than Trump himself. If the 35-year-old Crooks wins against her Republican opponent in November, she will be the first Trump accuser to win elected office after Mr. Trump's ascendance to the presidency. That mission was to bring a much-needed Republican vote to the Senate, and you all have done me proud. Ted Cruz (R), and former representative Mike Espy has an open field to the Democratic Party's nomination in MS as Republicans are engaged in a bitter, ideological contest.

Manchin is a conservative-leaning Democrat, which has worked well for him in the past, but it seems that the state is trending more Republican.

The races in both states are classified as tossups by the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, while the OH contest is rated as "lean Democratic".

After the race was called in Manchin's favor, Manchin said: "For me, it's always been about working for West Virginia and that will never change". State officials noted that West Virginia's "sore loser" law leaves Blankenship with virtually no option to run in the general election. "We want to congratulate David McKinley, Alex Mooney, Carol Miller and Patrick Morrisey on their nominations, and look forward to working with them all the way to November". And in central OH, a tea-party-style insurgent came within a few hundred votes of defeating the handpicked favorite of the recently retired Republican congressman, Patrick J. Tiberi, a close ally of House leadership.

U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci has won the Republican primary to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. "Ohio is going to move forward with the Trump agenda, and OH is going to get anybody who is an obstacle, including Senator Brown, out of the way". They will face off in November.

President Donald Trump welcomed the results in a Wednesday morning tweet, calling it a "great night" for the Republican Party.
