2018 Primaries

Postby Ibanez » Wed Jun 13, 2018 5:48 am

There are few notable outcomes from yesterday's primary

Mark Sanford (R) lost his first election to Katie Arrington. Sanford is a noted critic of Trump whereas Arrington pledged an oath of loyalty to Trump.

His critiques of Trump have often focused on the President's style. After the shooting at congressional Republicans' baseball practice, Sanford on MSNBC said Trump is "partially to blame for demons that have been unleashed" in American politics. In 2017, Sanford told Politico that Trump had "fanned the flames of intolerance." He also called it "befuddling" that with Trump "facts don't matter."
Sanford addressed Trump's tweet Tuesday night, saying it's "fairly unusual" for a president to weigh in as Trump did and saying he's "neither for nor against Trump," but instead bases his decisions and comments on his political values.
"It may cost me an election in this case but I stand by every one of those decisions to disagree with the president," Sanford said.


Archie Parnell (D) won, even after he admitted to beating his wife.
In South Carolina, Archie Parnell won the Democratic primary in the 5th District despite admitting to domestic abuse in the 1970s. Local, state and national Democrats have called on him to drop out of the race in the deep-red district and said they wouldn't support him if he won.


And our Guv'na is headed to a runoff with a guy that is supported by Duck Dynasty (seriously :ohno: )
Republican Gov. Henry McMaster -- an early and vocal supporter of Trump who replaced former Gov. Nikki Haley -- fell short of 50% and is headed to a June 26 runoff with the second-place finisher, businessman John Warren.


I liked Sanford - say what you want about his affair and running off to Argentina, the man has political values and won't bend them just to #MAGA.

I'm not a fan of Parnell and will vote against him. He tried running for the seat with Trump tapped Mulvaney for an admin position. There's something about Parnell that I didn't like then - now there's more.

McMaster is an ass who tries to interject religion too often into our politics. I hope he loses the runoff and in November.


How'd your state do?

In Virginia Corey Stewart wins the Republican nomination to face Tim Kaine. Stewart will try to "Trump" Kaine but it will not work. When Trump "Trumps" someone he is being an ass but he is also being real and it is that reality that sells. When Stewart does the same he just come off being an ass. Kaine by 20 in November.

Bill Kristol is on twitter joining the chorus complaining that Trump hijacking the party. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. If only he and his Neocons were running the GOP the party would be so much better off.

A " self-declared neo-Nazi White Supremacist"? Well, I guess if wife beater and rapists can do well in the Democratic party, a racists can do well in the GOP.

The people who won the primaries were the expected ones up here, so nothing new. But the fun doesn't start till this fall and it will feature Kevin Cramer (R) who is challenging Heidi Heitkamp (D) for ND lone Senate seat. So far it looks like it will be the most expensive race in ND history.

I think it will be a little to late for Heidi but who knows. Not looking forward to all the ads though. They have already started campaigning and advertising on the local TV stations.

If I still lived in VA I would have voted for Freitas. Not because of anything against Stewart per se, but from what little I know of the 38 year old Freitas:
-a former Green Beret.
-much better chance of beating Kaine.
-this 7 min speech on the floor of the VA House defending the 2nd Amendment, which apparently received over 11 million hits on his Facebook page: :clap:

Difference is - the Democratic Party didn't endorse the wife beater, and actively worked against him, and is still urging him to drop out, while the RNC and Trump are firmly behind the Neo-Nazi.

That didn't stop the avg Democratic voter voting for him, allowing him to win the primary. Who cares if the machine and staff pulled support - he still had the will of the people. And I bet you what - the DNC is happy he won and will support him in November. And to be frank, the incident was 40 years ago. We all make mistakes. Hell, I heard that a former Dem governor used to drive around with cops and pick up chicks and then **** interns. That guy was made POTUS!

but you knew that already.


Btw, i'm too lazy to look it up and you said it - the guy is a "self-declared Nazi"? I haven't heard that.

Collectively we have a dumpster fire of epic proportions but that doesn't change the reality that supporters of both sides can be hypocrites who rationalize their side's behavior while condemning offensive behavior by the other side.

Still waiting for the proof that someone in 2018 is a self declared "neo-Nazi, White Supremacist."

The guy sounds like an idiot - but I haven't read anything where he states, he's "neo-Nazi".


Then again, I guess most Southern men are, "neo-Nazi, White Supremacist," in Dbacks view. :coffee:
