John Hickenlooper won the primaries, but not without any blows. The senior Democrats who recruited the former governor of Colorado wanted to avoid this. Hickenlooper’s mistakes, though largely caused spontaneously, may eventually help Republican Senator Cory Gardner-considering Colorado’s voting history, he seems particularly vulnerable. In the western part of the state, current Republican lawmakers have been ousted by far-right challengers.
In another high-profile contest, Republicans in Oklahoma City failed to unite one person on Tuesday, and the two candidates will travel to a decisive battle in late August, with the opportunity to compete with Democratic Representative Kendra Horne ( Kendra Horn), this is one of the biggest surprises for Democrats. Mid-2018, November.
The biggest surprise that night was that Trump-backed Congressman Rep. Scott Tipton, who represented Western Colorado, lost his main legacy, and this is the far-right owner of the gun-themed restaurant, Lauren · Lauren Boebert, despite the Colorado Coronavirus Regulations.
Tipton admitted to Bobbert on Tuesday night, saying in a statement that Republicans in his area “have decided that they will compete with Democrats in November this year. I would like to congratulate Lauren Bobbert And wish her and her supporters every success.”
Trump supported Tipton in a tweet on Monday, but a few minutes after congressmen admitted it, the Republican president praised Bobbert.
“Congratulations on your great victory.” He wrote about 24 hours after approving of his opponent.
Boebert’s victory is the latest example of candidates supporting the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory to win the Republican primary. Bobbert told an interviewer in May that she was “very familiar” with this conspiracy and added, “It’s just motivation and encouragement to bring people together and become stronger, if this is true, then It’s really great for our country.”
Democrats quickly slammed the newly formed Republican candidate, and the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Cheri Bustos, quickly called on Washington Republicans to “immediately deny Lauren Boebert and her extreme Dangerous conspiracy theory.”
Hickenlooper withdraws from major bruises
Heckenlooper defeated his main opponent of the Democratic Party, former State House Speaker Andrew Romanoff, on Tuesday.
But this is not a clean victory.
Heckenlooper is a candidate for the agency’s fragile Republican Senator Cory Gardner and a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential primaries. He stumbled into Tuesday’s election twice, including angering activists, and was frustrated by Black Life and the Colorado Independent Ethics Committee (LAD). The former governor violated the ethics law twice in 2018.
Hickenlooper said in the video: “This will unite all of us to defeat Corey Gardner and achieve the much-needed change in this country.” “In this state, I have never lost a game I don’t want to lose this election. This involves too much.”
Hickenlooper’s efforts to get rid of the primaries clearly disappointed Democrats across the country, especially considering how critical it was for the Democratic Party to regain the Senate’s hopes by defeating Gardner in November. Without Hickenlooper’s victory, these opportunities would be difficult.
By struggling to get rid of elementary school, Hickenlooper provided Republicans with more material for him in the next four months.
Joanna Rodriguez, the spokeswoman for the National Republican Senate Committee, said of the former governor’s victory: “If you see him collapse under pressure in recent weeks, it means “Kendrup” is very good. lively.”
Republicans in the Oklahoma House of Representatives are full of hope
No Republicans scrambled to compete with Democratic Rep. Kendra Horn in November, avoiding Tuesday’s election, which means State Senator Stephanie Bice and businesswoman Terry · Terry Neese will face off on August 25.
The winner of the Republican primary election will replace Horn. His ability to win 13 points in 2018 Oklahoma City President Donald Trump is arguably the biggest surprise of the Democratic midterm.
As Oklahoma City and the surrounding suburbs have become younger and more educated, the area has been changing. These are two factors that help Democrats. But Horne benefited from Trump’s absence in the 2018 vote, and Republicans hope Trump can boost Republicans in the region.
Bice and Neese are the two leaders of elementary school students who entered the poll on Tuesday. Bice’s funding is better, raising more than $1 million before the end of the pre-school reporting period on June 10. But Neese was able to raise some of her own funds for her initial bid, borrowing $450,000 from her campaign and raising approximately $532,000.
