GOP Pulls Off Huge Special Election Wins In North Carolina, & It’s Great News for Trump 2020

Tuesday night in North Carolina was huge for President Trump and the Republican Party.

It doesn’t matter if you win by an inch or a mile as long as you win.

But if the GOP lost those two special elections last night, it could’ve spelled bad things for 45 in 2020.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Republican Dan Bishop edged out Democrat Dan McCready in the special election on Tuesday to represent North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, narrowly holding on to a House seat that has been in the GOP’s hands for nearly 60 years.

President Trump also carried the district in 2016 by a nearly 12-point margin over Hillary Clinton, and the special election on Tuesday was seen by Republicans as a sort of testing ground for his political messaging heading into 2020.

Trump tweeted:

Dan Bishop was down 17 points 3 weeks ago. He then asked me for help, we changed his strategy together, and he ran a great race. Big Rally last night. Now it looks like he is going to win. @CNN & @MSNBC are moving their big studio equipment and talent out. Stay tuned!

Greg Murphy is a big winner in North Carolina 03. Much bigger margins than originally anticipated. Congratulations Greg!
