WASHINGTON, May 11 – Donald Trump’s presidential election failed in the first Republican election in Nebraska on Tuesday, but the former president won the first congressional hearing in West Virginia.
Tuesday’s election was the result of Trump’s split, which has propelled more than 150 people as he tries to form his Republican party ahead of the 2024 presidential election.
In Nebraska, his choice of governor, Charles Herbster, lost his rival Jim Pillen, according to Edison Research, although Trump held his meeting a little over a week earlier.
But in West Virginia, voters have nominated Alex Mooney, a candidate who has backed Trump’s false allegations of fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
Tuesday’s election is part of a series of nominations that will set the stage for the November 8 election in which Republicans are allowed to win at least one congressional hearing, which will empower them to bring the legal agenda of Democratic Alliance President Joe Biden. standing.
Trump’s influence will be tested in the Senate presidential race later this month in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Georgia.
In recent weeks, the Nebraska race has been rife with allegations that Herbster, an agricultural official, sexually abused many women, which he denies.
Edison Research has revealed that Pillen, a pig farmer and university board member, will defeat Herbster and win nominations. Pillen is authorized by the current governor, Pete Ricketts.
In West Virginia, Mooney, nominated by Trump, defeated his rival David McKinley, who was backed by the country’s governor, Jim Justice.
McKinley has been campaigning to support Biden’s infrastructure law, which will send billions of dollars to the government through roads, bridges, and other projects. Both are executives in a province that has lost its seat due to a declining population.
“I feel honored that the voters of the new West Virginia congress have elected me to carry a strong banner as we start running until November,” Mooney said on Twitter. “Tonight is a memorial night for the people of West Virginia and I look forward to being their faithful voice in Congress.”
Also in Nebraska, Don Bacon’s representative had a chance to win the primary Republican after Edison Research predicted he would drop the challenge to Steve Kuehl. Trump has urged voters to reject Bacon over criticizing Trump’s role in the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Bacon will face a competitive November election in the Omaha-based region contesting Democrat Tony Vargas, who Edison Research nominated to win his party’s primary.
