Arizona Special Election Results – 8th House District: Republican Debbie Lesko Defeats Democrat Hiral Tipirneni
BLUE WAVE STOPPED, DEMOCRATS FAIL TO WIN AZ 8TH …
The former Arizona state senator Republican Debbie Lesko defeated Democratic Hiral Tipirneni to win the special congressional election for the 8th House District on Tuesday, 52.6% to 47.4%. Lesko’s victory guarantees that the GOP will hold on to a seat held previously by former Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), who resigned over a personal scandal. As stated at Breitbart, the Blue wave fizzles when Democrats act and conduct themselves as Democrats, not GOP like.
The “Blue Wave” concept had gained some credence in March when Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA) defeated Republican Rick Saccone in a special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, which President Trump carried by 19 points in 2016.
But the special election in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District Tuesday differed from last month’s special election in Pennsylvania in several ways.
First, Hiral Tipirneni was not the same kind of candidate as Conor Lamb, as Breitbart News reported:
Tipirneni’s professional background and political positioning differ from those of Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA), a military veteran and attorney who parlayed his public opposition to Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) into a narrow victory over his Republican opponent in last month’s special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District.
“The heightened Republican voter turnout [in early voting] may have been influenced by recent reports questioning the professional background of Tipirneni, the Democrat candidate,” Breitbart News noted.
Second, Arizona’s 8th Congressional District is a traditionally Republican district, while Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District is more of a traditionally union oriented blue-collar Democratic district.
WHEN THE CARDS ARE ALL STACKED AGAINST YOU … THIS IS THE RESULT.
Fox News is reporting that Democrat Doug Jones has defeated Republican Roy Moore 49.9% to 48.4%. The onslaught from the liberal MSM, outside liberal money, a lack of support from establishment Republicans and the last minute accusations by women of alleged sexual assault more than 40 years ago was too much for any Republican, even in the deep South, to overcome. A deep RED state where Donald Trump won 63%-35% in 2016 … now finds itself with a liberal Democrat Senator. Nice job Mitch McConnell and the GOP.
As the liberal media cheers over their coup, I would ask the question, who thinks if the rolls were revered and last nights election was in say Massachusetts, New York, California, Vermont, Illinois or any other deep Blue Democrat states … would the Republican have won? I doubt it very much. By the way, Jones said he was a uniter, does that mean he is going to reach across the aisle and support Trump’s agenda? Let this be a reminder to the GOP in 2018, the Democrat party is snaky and not to be trusted. What they just did in Alabama, don’t let it happen in your state in 2018 or 2020. You have been warned.
Democrat Doug Jones has pulled off a major upset in Alabama by defeating Republican Roy Moore in Tuesday’s special election, becoming the first Democrat to win election to the Senate from the deeply conservative state in 25 years.
“We have come so far and the people of Alabama have spoken,” Jones said during a victory speech in Birmingham late Tuesday.
But in a late-night speech to supporters, Moore refused to concede. Moore told the crowd that when the “vote is this close…it’s not over.”
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Jones had 49.9 percent to Moore’s 48.4 percent.
Don’t let the liberal media, Democrats or even Senate-elect Doug Jones define the outcome of this special election that was unfortunately far more special and dirty than any election should ever be. The liberal and anti-Trump WAPO would have you believe that this was a referendum on President Trump and the GOP agenda. Really, Trump actually supported Luther Strange. ABC News would have you believe that the Democrat party is better off than the Republican party is in Alabama. Seriously?
Let’s cut through all the bullshit and call this for what it was … Doug Jones did not win the race, Roy Moore and Mitch McConnell lost it. In a special election where voter turnout was low, and especially low with Republicans who could not get beyond accusations were not proven facts, a Democrat won. Doug Jones’ liberal, far left policies are not representative of Alabama. Jones won because of the last minute sexual allegation from some 40 years ago and the MSM hammering that message hone every day. Even with that, with the LEFT, MSM, Democrats and establishment Republicans against him, Moore lost by just 1.5%. Fox News last called it at 10%, thanks guys.
Here is a prediction … Doug Jones will be a 2 year Senator as this seat is up for reelection in 2020. Jones is just filling out the remainder of Session’s term. In 2020 the Senate seat will go back to the GOP and the deep RED state of Alabama will have proper representation again. Jones is a pro-abortion, open borders advocate, even Mitch McConnell’s GOP can find a decent candidate between now and then to run and win.
Special U.S Senate Election Day in Alabama for Conservative Republican Roy Moore and Ultra-Liberal Democrat Doug Jones
MY ADVICE TO ALABAMA VOTERS IS, YOU CAN UNDO A MOORE VOTE IF HE IS FOUND GUILTY, YOU CAN’T UNDO VOTING FOR A LIBERAL, ANTI-TRUMP DEMOCRAT WHO WILL SIDE WITH THE RESISTANCE ALL OF THE TIME …
It is special election day in Alabama and all eyes are on the U.S. Senate race between Republican Roy Moore and liberal Democrat Doug Jones. The LEFT, the MSM, Democrats and establishment Republicans have thrown the kitchen sink at Roy Moore with allegations of sexual misconduct; even though many of those accusers have had their stories discredited. What ever the case may be, it is up to the voters of Alabama, not the liberal media, not the outside liberal Democrat PAC money, not people from other states, but those from Alabama to make their choice. As Lynyrd Skynyrd sings in Sweet Home Alabama, “Well, I hope Neil Young (replace with anyone not an Alabama voter) will remember, A southern man don’t need him around anyhow.” Its up to you Alabama, only you.
Is a state who voted for Donald trump and his agenda 63%-35% really going to vote for a member of the liberal, Democrat resistance?
At RCP, the polls show everything from a 9 point Moore win to a 10 point Jones win. How can this be? Some one is going to be really wrong. How on the same days of polling can you get results different by nearly 20%? Some believe the FOX News poll is skewed. Could that be? Could establishment Republicans be just as much in the tank as Democrats to sabotage Moore and the Trump agenda? What do you think?
The fact of the matter is, much of this reeks of dirty Democrat and establishment GOP politics. Why did the women come forward now? If they did not want Moore to win and they claim to be Trump voting Republicans, why didn’t they make these allegations prior to the special GOP primary election? This certainly isn’t Moore’s first rodeo. Why not prior to any of his other state elections? If this was so well known about Moore, certainly the establishment GOP opposition research could have known about this. Why would those making accusations have felt the need to lie so much and withhold key pieces of information like having accused 3 other pastors of sexual misconduct, forging the year book, etc.
I have no idea is Judge Roy Moore is accused of doing what others claim. I also don’t know if the female accusers are lying. Because that has never happened before, see Duke Lacrosse and University of Virginia fraternity false rape accusations. Knee jerk reactions are never good. Do the people of Alabama really believe the Democrat party cares about them? Do they really think that Doug Jones is going to be some bridge between the GOP and Democrats? C’mon man, you know better than that. If you want a Senator who will oppose Trump, then vote for Jones. If you want the Trump agenda, then vote for Moore. You have outs if the accusations are proved true. You have zero outs with Jones.
This has been politics at its worse. The polls are open Alabama, it now all up to you.
SWEET HOME ALABAMA … ROY MOORE WINS!!!
Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore has won the Alabama Republican primary for U.S. Senate, defeating an appointed incumbent backed by President Donald Trump and hand picked ally of Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. WAY TO GO ALABAMA. Moore not only defeated Strange, he crushed him 55% to 45%. In the end, the people of Alabama spoke and it was the people of Alabama who knew that Roy Moore was the better candidate to run for US Senate, more so that even President Donald Trump.
Republican challenger Roy Moore defeated Sen. Luther Strange in Alabama’s Senate primary Tuesday night, riding a wave of rural support over the incumbent backed by President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Moore, a former state Supreme Court justice, had 55 percent of the vote to Strange’s 45 percent with 95 percent of precincts reporting. Strange, who was appointed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ old seat earlier this year, is the first senator to lose a primary since Indiana Republican Richard Lugar was defeated in 2012.
Moore’s victory comes despite the efforts of top Republicans in Washington, who threw their weight behind Strange. Trump endorsed Strange in August and appeared with him in Alabama last week, while a super PAC aligned with McConnell spent millions of dollars on pro-Strange advertising.
But Strange never led a single public poll against Moore since finishing behind Moore in the August primary and qualifying for the runoff. Moore had been elected statewide twice and built up a committed conservative following during stints on the state Supreme Court, where he defied federal orders on same-sex marriage and the display of a statue of the Ten Commandments and racked up a history of controversial comments on race and religion.
Sweet Home Alabama
This should be a wake up call to both President Donald Trump and especially Sen. Mitch McConnell. This election is not a referendum on President Trump as he is still admired and adored in Alabama with high approval ratings. However, this is a bitter defeat and referendum on McConnell. The GOP has been a failure and should take this as a sign to either resign his position or leave the U.S. Senate altogether.
Get ready for the wave America. Fueled by the LEFT’s continual denial of the 2016 presidential election, the disrespectful National Anthem situation and the Republican establishment’s failures, the Democrats are not going to take anything back in 2018, the country is not moving left, looks for establishment GOP, gutless SOB’s to be primary challenged and lose and for them to resign from office before they are embarrassed.
A note to President Donald Trump … you took part in a wave election in 2016, make sure you are not on the wrong side again for the 2018 wave election. You stated you were going to drain the swamp, DO IT!
To the great state of Alabama, THANK YOU!!! You just sent a political shot across the bow of the GOP establishment politicians. Look for many of these cowards to see the writing on the wall and finally leave Washington, DC. If they don’t voluntarily, we will vote them out once and for all.
As the Voters Go to the Polls in Alabama for Special GOP Primary Election … Roy Moore Ahead in Trafalgar Group Survey
WE SHALL SEE IF THE POLLS ARE CORRECT THIS TIME … ELECT ROY MOORE!!!
As Alabama goes to vote today in the 2017 special U.S. Senate Republican Primary runoff, a new TFG survey shows that Roy Moore is comfortably ahead of incumbent Luther Strange, 56.74% to 40.69%. Although President Donald Trump is widely popular in Alabama, the folks there just think he’s wrong on this as they see Moore as their guy. Trump and Pence have both campaigned for Luther Strange. But in the end, the election is the only poll that matters as we learned in the 2016 Presidential election.
Check back later today for the results.
Moore – Strange
A new Alabama survey of likely 2017 primary voters for the U.S. Senate Republican Primary Runoff was released today. The Trafalgar Group (TFG), recognized for having the most accurate polling in the 2016 battleground states and Electoral College projection, conducted the poll from September 23rd through September 24th.
TFG conducted this survey of 1073 respondents from a random stratified selection of likely 2017 primary voters. The margin of error is +/- 2.98.
56.74% Roy Moore
40.69% Luther Strange
Robert Cahaly, Senior Strategist and Chief Pollster at Trafalgar Group said, “Our attempt here was to measure the closing weekend impact of the Trump visit on the race as well as the effect on Trump’s approval. Though the president’s visit doesn’t seem to have swayed the race in favor of Strange, it does appear to have reinforced his personal support among Alabama Republicans which now stands at almost 80% favorability.
