See: Dems admit Trump helped GOP candidates sweep North Carolina special elections


“In a major victory for both President Trump and national Republicans, North Carolina GOP state Sen. Dan Bishop was projected to win a fiercely contested special U.S. House election for the 9th District that was widely seen as a bellwether for the president’s chances in the 2020 election.


And another Republican House candidate, Greg Murphy, decisively won a separate special election in North Carolina’s more solidly GOP-leaning 3rd District earlier Tuesday evening — frustrating Democrats who spent millions trying to make a splash in the state.”


The folks over at MSNBC, the voice of the communist/socialist party, were very, very disappointed.

Elizabeth Warren’s socialist plan for “free” college tuition, and cancelling student loan debt, will be paid for by taxing millions of college graduates who worked for and paid their own way through college and are now trying to finance their own economic needs.
 
Bishop squeaked by by 2%. That's not exactly a walk over, especially in a district that has been a walkover for the R's since the late 60's. This next election in '20 is going to be all about get out the vote and it's going to be a squeaker itself.

True, but the demonrats thought they had this one and they were all over place talking about how it was going to be a repudiation of Trump. Trump shows up in NC and whoops, it was a MAGA love fest.

A win is a win and I'll take all the winning I can get. I just don't like close run cuttin' scrapes. I prefer to bleed 'em quick and bleed 'em big. :bounce:

Yep, but watching them die by a thousand cuts is pretty fun.

They were happy because the last election the dem candidate lost by 12% so they improved by 10%. At least that’s what Brazille was saying. I’m still happy they lost though

Ain't Brazille the sistuh who fed Hillary debate questions so she'd know what to prepare for? And somebody still listens to what she says?
 
2% win inn 2020 will be the same thing as a lost, after all lost ballots are accounted for. All Dems will have to do is get close.
 
I have driven through every square mile of this district, hundreds of times. This is cornbread and chicken country with a side of yaller rice.

The democrats are getting cocky by getting these close elections in areas that used to be dominated by republicans. This is exactly how they turned Cobb County Blue. A few more and Jawga is Blue.
