South Carolina GOP scraps 2020 presidential primary; other states may follow

South Carolina GOP scraps 2020 presidential primary; other states may follow

That is a factor in this particular race that, clearly, won't be replicated around the country for Republicans trying to hold their House seats in 2020. Should Bishop defeat Democrat Dan McCready, it could give Trump room to assert that he pulled Bishop over the top. It is neck and neck, and it's being seen as a preview of what is to come in 2020.

From inviting her to the Group of 20 economic summit in Japan to including her in a small delegation that visited the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, the president has repeatedly sought to promote Ivanka Trump on the world stage - often to the skepticism of observers, who have noted the first daughter's lack of political or foreign policy credentials.

Pence was referring to House Bill 370, which would have required North Carolina sheriffs to cooperate with ICE.

President Trump traveled to North Carolina Monday to show support for the Republican in a special election for a House seat that's viewed as a toss-up. Is that why this district is so competitive again? Aside from Teddy Roosevelt's run, they never hold one with a Republican incumbent.

Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) questions U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on President Obama's executive action on immigration as Johnson testifies at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, on December 2, 2014.

And so there's sort of a one-two punch happening today. In fact, according to figures from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, there are 34 districts now held by Republican members of Congress that Trump carried by less than he did North Carolina's 9th. But it's a very conservative area, a very military-heavy district, and this is really where they need to boost turnout.

United Nations calls for accountability in Saudi-led attack on Yemen prison
Local residents, however, said it was a detention centre in the city that was hit. The coalition has never been informed. about the location.

"I'm listing my goals, my primary goals, to say, let's go out and force - or try and create - a conversation on that which is not being talked about in this presidential cycle". We know they're both named Dan. We've seen the latest poll numbers and know we can not take this election for granted. If McCready prevails or Bishop wins by a whisker, it will suggest GOP erosion and raise questions about Trump's and his party's viability for 2020. "If we don't do it this year, we put that national debate off until the next presidential election cycle".

So you have Dan Bishop running. Bishop is best known for authoring the state's controversial "bathroom bill" that eliminated anti-discrimination protections for the LGBTQ community. But Democrats aren't even really hitting him on this.

"In August, McCready said it was "the right call" to set illegal alien criminals loose in the great state ... of North Carolina", Trump said, referring to McCready's support for Gov. Roy Cooper's (D) vetoing of a sanctuary city ban in the state.

Sanford, who has been privately considering whether to run since leaving office in January, faces long odds in his bid against Trump, whose approval rating among Republicans has consistently been around 90%.

Now you can read the Jamaica Observer ePaper anytime, anywhere. "I'm not saying I would ever endorse a Democrat in but I could not support the president". A Bishop loss - and the potential panic that would cause among GOPers in Congress - could end or, at the very least, badly curtail Republican hopes before we even get to 2020. There are only four Democrats now in the House who represent a more conservative seat than this one.
