Fox News: David Bossie: Sorry, Democrats, primary results prove that Trump’s agenda is a smash hit

The results in Tuesday's primaries in eight states are an early indication that President Trump's "America First" agenda and accomplishments are winning the support of the American people. This is good news for Republicans running in the Nov. 6 midterm elections.

The Trump agenda of economic growth, job creation, border security, and peace through strength abroad is causing voters to seriously consider the consequences of supporting candidates who carry the Democratic mantle of tax hikes, protecting sanctuary cities, and the hyper-partisan and baseless impeachment witch hunt.

In California, it will be hard for Democrats to point to evidence that a blue wave is coming in November. In congressional districts 39, 45 and 48 – all key pieces of the puzzle for a Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives – Republican candidates received over 50 percent of the vote in the “jungle primary” system.

With Democrats clinging to a meager 3 percent advantage in generic ballot polling averages, picking up the 23 House seats necessary to win a Democratic majority looks like it will be more difficult than expected.

Democrats also failed in their quest to send two open-border liberals to the general election in the California gubernatorial contest. Republican businessman John Cox captured second place, due to strong support from President Trump.

Cox will be a strong advocate for the president's pro-growth economic record in California. This will be a sharp contrast to Democrat Gavin Newsom's ultra-liberal objectives, which will only continue California's charge into the abyss.

Also worth noting is that a Democratic state senator in California was recalled for voting for gas tax increases, costing California Democrats the supermajority in the Legislature necessary to raise taxes even more.

Fresh off one of the best jobs reports in years, voters came to the polls in the eight states where primaries were held with growing optimism and a feeling that there is reason to feel good again in America.

Roll Call: Patrick Morrisey Wins West Virginia GOP Senate Primary

State attorney general will face Joe Manchin in November



West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has won the Republican nomination to take on Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin III in November in what's likely to be one of the most closely watched races in the country.

He took 35 percent of the vote in a six-way GOP primary field, besting Rep. Evan Jenkins and former Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship who finished with 29 percent and 20 percent, respectively.

The defeat of Blankenship, a former convict, is a win for national Republicans who spent upward of a million dollars attacking him.

Trump went as far as to tweet against Blankenship on Monday, saying he'd be unelectable in November and asking voters to "remember Alabama," a reference to the Senate special election last December when Democrat Doug Jones upset controversial GOP nominee Roy Moore.

With the help of a super PAC supporting him, Morrisey hammered Jenkins throughout the campaign, accusing him of being a liberal. Meanwhile, Jenkins was also hit by national Democrats through a super PAC called Duty and Country.

In the final days of the race, Morrisey turned his attention to Blankenship, who had seen a late surge in internal polling after last week's Fox News debate. Morrisey released robocalls and a digital ad attacking the former coal executive for his role in a 2010 mine explosion in southern West Virginia and for serving time in prison in Nevada. He also attacked him for not filing his personal financial disclosure report, threatening to call Blankenship's parole officer. (His parole ends Tuesday.)

"CUPVF is proud to support conservative change agent Melanie Leneghan for Congress.

CUPVF Endorses Conservative Chip Roy In TX-21 Congressional District Primary

Citizens United Political Victory Fund (CUPVF), the affiliated PAC of Citizens United, issued the following statement endorsing conservative candidate Chip Roy for U.S. House in Texas’ 21st congressional district.

“CUPVF is proud to support conservative change agent Chip Roy for Congress. I know Chip is a constitutional conservative who will bring his unwavering principles to the U.S. House to take on the failed Washington status quo and help enact President Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda,” said Citizens United President David N.

“Chip Roy is a full spectrum conservative who will join our efforts to fully repeal and replace Obamacare, protect the sanctity of life, and secure our border. I look forward to working with Chip to enact these policies and I urge all Republican primary voters in Texas’ 21st congressional district to vote for principled conservative Chip Roy for Congress,” Bossie concluded.


Breitbart: Total and Complete Surrender: Democrats’ Schumer Shutdown Cave Endangers Leftists, Emboldens GOP Walking into Midterm Elections

Congressional Democrats on Monday, the third day of the government shutdown, completely caved to the Republicans—getting absolutely nothing policy-wise for their efforts.
And perhaps they jeopardized their midterm election chances in a volatile voting year, hurting House and Senate Democrats' chances alike. But it also provides Republicans with a much-needed overarching theme for the midterm elections, which is that Democrats favor illegal aliens over Americans, while Republicans put Americans first. Party-wide, top Republicans on Monday were fired up after the Schumer Shutdown ended in absolute utter failure for the Democrats.

"Millions of Americans have watched Democrats resist and obstruct President Trump at every move and they watched Democrats put politics above people by voting for this shutdown," Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), told Breitbart News on Monday afternoon. "For the Democrats who chose once again to jeopardize government funding, November is going to be a wake-up call."

President Donald Trump and Republicans on both sides of Capitol Hill are jubilant after this complete and total victory, as Democrats offered unconditional surrender just three days into their ill-advised government shutdown strategy to try to push for an amnesty for illegal alien recipients of the expiring DACA program. As the government reopens Monday evening after the Senate first passed a government funding bill followed by the House, Republicans party-wide are salivating at the political opportunities that lay ahead in November of this year.

"The pathetic Schumer shutdown has made one thing crystal clear to all Americans heading into the 2018 midterms elections," Dave Bossie, the president of Citizens United and former deputy campaign manager for President Trump's 2016 general election campaign, told Breitbart News. "The Democrats' number one priority is to protect 700,000 illegal aliens ahead of 300 million Americans. President Trump is fighting for all Americans first. His priority is making sure that 300 million Americans are far more wealthy, far more secure, and far more optimistic about the future than they were during Barack Obama's failed presidency and Nancy Pelosi's failed tenure as House Speaker."

RCP: Trump Visit Shows High Stakes for Pa. Special Election

President Trump’s visit to western Pennsylvania on Thursday is the latest sign of GOP concern over a special election that could fuel Democrats’ hopes for a wave election this fall -- or stifle that enthusiasm as Republicans seek to maintain their congressional majorities.   

Unlike the battlegrounds in last year’s high-stakes special elections, Pennsylvania’s 18th District is mostly white, rural and filled with blue-collar workers; though Democrats maintain a registration advantage, it voted heavily for Trump in 2016.

The outcome of the March 13 face-off there provides a test case for whether Democrats can win back the working-class vote that fled the party in droves to support Trump, and whether Republicans can transfer the president’s popularity with his base and generate enough enthusiasm to limit losses this fall.

Citizens United, a GOP group run by David Bossie, Trump’s former deputy campaign manager, endorsed Saccone on Wednesday, and Republicans maintain an edge in early advertising: Ending Spending, a Republican super PAC backed by billionaire Joe Ricketts, pledged $1 million earlier this month, and has been running ads both in favor of the Republican and against the Democrat, Conor Lamb.

Citizens United Political Victory Fund (CUPVF), the affiliated PAC of Citizens United, issued the following statement endorsing Pennsylvania State Representative Rick Saccone for the U.S. House in Pennsylvania's 18th congressional district special election. 

"CUPVF is proud to support conservative change agent Rick Saccone for Congress in Pennsylvania's 18th congressional district. State Rep. Saccone understands that Washington is broken and he will come to Congress to fight for the common sense reforms in President Trump's agenda for the American people," said Citizens United President David N.

"Rick Saccone knows that Americans need pro-growth policies that will help our economy create new American jobs. Saccone also supports President Trump's strong efforts on border security and holding sanctuary cities accountable," added Bossie, who served as President Donald J. Trump's Deputy Campaign Manager.

"Residents of Pennsylvania's 18th congressional district deserve a Congressman who will represent their interests, not Nancy Pelosi's liberal San Francisco interests.
