Notable Congressional PRIMARY RESULTS

Notable Congressional PRIMARY RESULTS (Sen. Hatch and Reps. Lamborn survive, as does Rep. Charlie Rangel; Jeffries defeats Barron; Rep. Sullivan is defeated)

Dear Members, Activists and Friends of AMERICAN PRINCIPLES,

Below are results for some of the more notable races in yesterday’s Congressional primaries.

Our good friend Doug Lamborn from Colorado Springs prevailed, as did the venerable Sen. Hatch, who campaigned pro-actively to avoid a fate similar to some of his other long-serving colleagues who have been knocked out in primaries.

On the Democrat side, the nefarious Charles Barron from Brooklyn was defeated handily by Hakeem Jeffries. While we do not support Democrats in general, some of our members did respond to the desperate plea from NY to keep Barron – who is apparently a cross between Rev. Wright and Louis Farrakhan – from winning the primary and cruising into the U.S. House.

Incredibly, Charlie Rangel also survived his primary, because apparently, 42 years in the House of Representatives is not long enough. Then again, who knows what kind of other representative we would get from his district.
