Senate Republicans are once again facing an “early headache of nightmare primary fights.”
There are also primary headaches for vulnerable Republican incumbents. Senator Thom Tillis has been losing credibility with North Carolina Republicans and former Tillis donors are now supporting his primary challenger, wealthy self-funder Garland Tucker. Unelected Senator Martha McSally has also once again failed to unite Arizona Republicans behind her after losing last year’s Senate race, and potential GOP primary challenger businessman Daniel McCarthy is saying he has “serious concerns” that McSally will lose again.
“These primaries aren’t just disruptive and expensive, they can derail Republican efforts in these states as we saw in states like Alabama and West Virginia last cycle,” said DSCC spokesperson Stewart Boss. “While Republicans are wrapped up in primary fights trying to sideline unelectable candidates they failed to keep out of these Senate races, Democrats are focused on building strong campaigns, breaking fundraising records and holding Republicans accountable for their unpopular health care records.”
