Trump Moves Needle With Republican Primary Endorsees

Published

on

President Donald J. Trump’s endorsees from Tuesday’s primary and special election races outperformed their expectations, both winning by thin margins against their opponents.

In the most anticipated race of the night, Troy Balderson, a Republican from Ohio won the special election for Ohio’s 12th Congressional District, edging out Democrat Danny O’Connor.

“When I decided to go to Ohio for Troy Balderson, he was down in early voting 64 to 36,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “That was not good. After my speech on Saturday night, there was a big turn for the better. Now Troy wins a great victory during a very tough time of the year for voting. He will win BIG in Nov.”

Balderson and O’Connor will square off in the general election on November 6 to see who will permanently keep the seat.

The Democrats are billing a close loss in Ohio 12 as a victory, considering that it has been Republican-held for more than 35 years. But O’Connor outspent Balderson four to one in voter contact, meaning television, radio, and digital media ads. Balderson spent most of his money fundraising, meaning he should be locked and loaded for November.

In Kansas, it appears that Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach, known for his tough stance on illegal immigration, has eeked out a primary win against incumbent Gov. Jeff Coyler. The race is still listed as “too close to call.”

Trump endorsed Kobach on Monday.

“Kris Kobach, a strong and early supporter of mine, is running for Governor of the Great State of Kansas,” Trump wrote. “He is a fantastic guy who loves his State and our Country – he will be a GREAT Governor and has my full & total Endorsement! Strong on Crime, Border & Military. VOTE TUESDAY!”

Trump celebrated with a Tweet this morning, claiming that he was 5 for 5 in endorsements and victories:

Trump also endorsed Republican John James, who won U.S Senate his primary in Michigan and will face incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) in the general election, and Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette who won the Republican gubernatorial primary.

Finally, Trump-endorsed Josh Hawley mopped the floor with the rest of the Republican candidates in the U.S. Senate Primary in Missouri. He will face incumbent Clare McCaskill (D-MO) in November.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”

Published

on

Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
