Fired-Up Conservative Voters Power GOP Wins In California And Wisconsin Special Elections

Trump Tweet Special Elections
Below the smokescreen of Wuhan virus fear porn conservatives powered the GOP to two important congressional special election victories: Tom Tiffany in WI-07 and Mike Garcia in CA-25.

Garcia and Tiffany both earned the endorsements of a variety of conservative leaders and organizations that heralded their victories as indicators of conservative enthusiasm that should carry through to November’s all-important national election.

Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh said in a statement emailed to CHQ: "These election results are an early indicator that in the midst of a global pandemic and subsequent economic downturn, voters will respond to candidates that support pro-growth policies like lower taxes and deregulation as opposed to the big-spending, power-grabbing agenda put forward by Pelosi's Democrats. Just as the Trump Administration’s initial rollback of regulations and tax cuts before the pandemic helped spur a 3% economic growth rate, we need more of these policies and elected officials who support them to right the economy after the devastation caused by the Coronavirus."

Our friend Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government told CHQ, “Nancy Pelosi was the big loser and President Trump the winner in two major special elections in swing districts that provide a proxy for voter sentiment in the midst of this government created recession.  With elections in swing districts in California and Wisconsin. The voters clearly have confidence in President Trump’s leadership, and have rejected Pelosi’s San Francisco values.”

President Trump also weighed-in with a tweet saying:

Big Congressional win in California for Mike Garcia, taking back a seat from the Democrats. This is the first time in many years that a California Dem seat has flipped back to a Republican. Also, Tom Tiffany beat his Democrat rival BIG in Wisconsin. Two great Congressional WINS!

However, Democrats have not exactly given up or conceded the race in California, even though Mike Garcia leads with 56 percent of the vote of the 143,000 ballots counted so far. Mailed ballots can count as long as they are postmarked by Tuesday and received by Friday.

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is now calling on the Democrats’ candidate, Christy Smith, to concede. "Christy Smith needs to do the right thing for the first time in this campaign and concede the race to fighter pilot Mike Garcia," NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer said in a statement Wednesday. "Christy Smith cannot win, and the math shows this."

So far Ms. Smith is still in the race, so in an earie repeat of 2018, the election isn’t over on Election Day and Democrats have until Friday to “find” the ballots necessary to steal the win from Garcia.

Garcia, if his lead holds, will replace former Rep. Katie Hill, D-Calif. – turning the blue seat red.

Tyler Olsen and Gregg Re of Fox News remind us that Hill resigned last year after a congressional ethics investigation was opened into a sexual relationship she allegedly had with one of her staffers. Hill was also alleged to have maintained a bizarre "throuple" arrangement with her husband and a campaign staffer.

The Wisconsin campaign was seen as a test of strength for President Trump who won Wisconsin by less than a point, but carried Wisconsin’s 7th District by 20 points, in 2016.

Tiffany, a businessman and state legislator since 2011, defeated Tricia Zunker, an attorney, judge for the Ho-Chunk Nation and a member of the Wausau School Board, by a margin of 57% to 43%.

Zunker had a lot of big-name liberal support and endorsements, including Massachusetts Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren, but her message didn’t really resonate with the conservative voters of Northwoods Wisconsin.

In contrast, Tom Tiffany ran as an unabashed supporter of the MAGA agenda, saying in an election night statement, "Throughout this campaign, one thing was made resoundingly clear: the people of our district want a strong, experienced voice who will take some Northwoods commonsense to Washington D.C.." Tiffany also vowed to work with President Donald Trump "to get our families safely through these rough times and back to prosperity."
