Giuliani-backed Eddie Edwards wins the race key NH house; Bernie Sanders’ son beaten in The primary

Giuliani-backed New Hampshire Congress hopeful Eddie Edwards after a debate earlier this month.


A Rudy Giuliani-backed Congress candidate is looking to history as a New Hampshire of the first black members of Congress emerged from a crowded field to win the Status of the GOP primary on Tuesday, as sen Bernie Sanders’ son was beaten up by a large margin in the Democratic contest.

Eddie Edwards, a Navy veteran, won convincingly over state Sen. Andy Sanborn, who had the endorsement of the Kentucky Republican sen. Rand Paul.

Giuliani called Edwards a “strong conservative who believes in low taxes and a supporter of the “America First” agenda of President Trump.”

The competition for a critical seat Republicans hope to flip in November-that was a brutal, very personal slugfest. Sanborn was accused of making a sexually explicit comment to a Statehouse intern in 2013 and allegedly often an aide commented on dress and appearance. Sanborn has denied the allegations, calling them a “witch hunt.”

During a surreal party-organized debate last month, Edwards was once asked to step down from the stage – in the midst of the chants and cries of the supporters of the two candidates – after the refusal, promise to support the eventual candidate, if Sanborn elementary school won.

While the impact of Giuliani’s endorsement were unclear, the candidate’s coverage of President Trump and his administration backs have proven to be powerhouses before the mid-term elections, after victories by Brian Kemp in Georgia, Troy Balderson, Ohio, Ron DeSantis in Florida, and Katie Arrington, South Carolina, among others.

Edwards said, “the president’s doing a hell of a job in Washington,” and “it is time we had a President who understood the values of our country and Stand for our country.”

It was a place in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District in more than 16 years of age, and this fits in with that 16 candidates vied on Tuesday to fill him, including 11 Democrats and 5 Republicans. The district, the Fox News is considered to be leaning Democratic in November, is considered to be one of the most important potential field of battle in November, and a rare opportunity for the GOP to snatch a blue seat.

Bernie Sanders’ son, Levi Sanders, right, share a laugh with Maura Sullivan to a debate for the democratic hopefuls earlier this month. He was beaten on Tuesday in the elementary school.



Democratic Rep. Carol Shea-stand Porter at the rest “makes the seat a real jump ball,” Republican consultant Ryan Williams said.

In the year 2016, the County of Donald Trump, the leading Edwards, supported to call it “his district.” But in the year 2016, the district will be re-elected Shea-Porter, who is stepping down after four semesters.

On the Democratic side, Chris Pappas, a former state legislator, serving his third term on the governor’s Executive Council, won the party strong. Pappas, who is openly gay, garnished Maura Sullivan, a U.S. Marine and Iraq war veteran, served in the Department of veterans Affairs and the Pentagon during the Obama administration.

Both also have in front of Sanders’ son, the 49-year-old Levi, which did not pick up his father’s approval. Levi said, “In the Sanders family, we don’t ‘do’ dynastic politics.”

In early results, Sanders less than three percent of the vote in New Hampshire, which his father won with a two-digit 2016 Democratic presidential primary had picked up.

The younger Sanders’ platform that included a Medicare-for-all and a higher minimum wage, but he was criticized during the race for life not only outside the district, but also from the national political mainstream.


New Hampshire is host to a different house, elementary school on Tuesday, for the 2. Constituency, held by incumbent Rep. Annie Kuster, a Democrat, doesn’t face a primary Challenger. The seven Republicans tried to take them in November, all of the voting will be supported Trump and his agenda.

In the New Hampshire gubernatorial primary, first-term Republican Gov. Chris Sununu has sailed through the primary unopposed. The GOP currently holds the General government four of the six States in the deep-blue New England region, including Vermont, Maine and Massachusetts. New Hampshire had a Democratic Governor for more than a decade before Sununu came to power in 2016.

To help In the hope that the Democrats make a dent in the Republican hold on the region of the Generalgouvernement, former state Sen. Molly Kelly and former Portsmouth mayor Steve Marchand, as the outsider candidate. Kelly convincingly won on Tuesday with a margin of 66 percent to 34 percent, and face Sununu in November.

Kelly emphasized her experience as a single mother, the three children, while by the school. While Marchand announced his progressive plans, Kelly said, she has the track record to prove it on issues such as support for public education, women’s rights and gun safety. She accused Sununu of pandering to the trump-administration with his support a school voucher bill, which ultimately did not.

Accustomed to first in the presidential primary, New Hampshire voters are among the last, candidate to nominate for November, Rhode Island and New York, where the nation’s last primaries later this week.
