[Just the News] Rep. Cawthorn loses North Carolina GOP House primary, concedes race.
North Carolina GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn on Tuesday night lost his bid for a second House term.
He conceded the race at about 10:25 p.m. Eastern time, according to several news outlets.
When Cawthorn conceded, he had 31.7% of the vote, compared to closest challenger Chuck Edwards with 33.5%, with 99% of the votes counted, according to the Associated Press.
In 2020, the 26-year-old congressman became the youngest person elected to Congress and quickly established himself as a popular conservative firebrand.
However, a series of incidents – including a tale about sex and drugs among Washington lawmakers, traffic violations, and a series of leaked, unflattering videos cost him the support of Washington Republicans.
Former President Trump continued to back Cawthorn, including an eleventh-hour plea to voters that the congressmen has learned from his mistakes, but it was not enough to save him from defeat in the eight-candidate primary.
Just the News: [Pennsylvania] McCormick and Oz – too close to call.
In a race that’s likely headed for a recount, Donald Trump-backed Pennsylvania GOP Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz and hedge fund CEO David McCormick were running neck-and-neck with less than 3,000 votes separating them with 94% of the vote in as of 1:34 a.m. Wednesday, according to CNN.
According to that tally, McCormick, a veteran, had 31.3% of the vote, compared to 31.1% for Dr. Oz.
A margin of 0.5% or less triggers an automatic recount in Pennsylvania.
“Unfortunately we’re not going to have a resolution tonight,” McCormick told his supporters, pointing out that thousands of absentee ballots still need to be counted. more
