On Tuesday, in a Special Runoff Election for the North Carolina 3rd Congressional District, Dr. Greg Murphy, an anti-establishment Conservative, crushed his pro-establishment Republican Dr. Joan Perry by nearly 20 points! Dr. Perry held the backing of much of the establishment Republicans in DC, while the election victor held the support of the anti-establishment, pro-Trump Conservatives!
Breitbart News reported on Tuesday night that…
With 100 percent reporting, Murphy won 59.7 percent of the vote to Perry’s 40.3 percent–a resounding nearly 20-point victory. The primary runoff election on Tuesday came after Murphy and Perry were the top-two vote-getters in the recent primary, but neither won enough to avoid the runoff. The runoff election became a proxy battle inside the GOP, with a number of GOP establishment organizations and politicians from Washington, D.C., throwing their weight behind Perry while Murphy won the support of grassroots conservatives and the House Freedom Caucus as well as other pro-Trump organizations.
The district has a special election this year because longtime Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC), a perennial thorn in the establishment’s side, passed away earlier this year opening up the seat. The Republican nominee, now Murphy, is expected to easily win the special election in the heavily-Republican district in the fall.
House Freedom Caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH)–the organization’s founding chairman–both heavily backed Murphy in the race. Murphy is expected to join the Freedom Caucus assuming he is elected.
“Dr. Greg Murphy made a decision to side with the forgotten man and woman, support President Trump and trust that large sums of special interest money would not command the most support at the ballot box,” Meadows told Breitbart News on Tuesday evening. “His decision was rewarded on Tuesday night as it will be each and every day he chooses to support North Carolina values over DC special interests. His servant’s heart won the day.”
Even more interesting, is the fact that the establishment-backed Perry held what seemed insurmountable odds, as the Republican establishment brought out the big guns to defeat Murphy! The Raleigh News and Observer pointed out that…
Perry was backed by all 13 GOP women in the U.S. House, including Reps. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina, Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Elise Stefanik of New York. Other high-profile Republican women like Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa and former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin also endorsed Perry. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich recorded a robocall for Perry.
North Carolina Reps. George Holding and Patrick McHenry supported her campaign, which got significant investment from two outside groups — the anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List and Winning For Women, a group dedicated to electing more conservative women to Congress.
The establishment-backed candidate’s momentum was truly shattered though when Perry voiced her opposition for President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to build the border wall. Breitbart then pointed out how…
when Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC)–the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee–issued a rogue subpoena to Donald Trump, Jr., the president’s eldest son, Murphy was one of the first conservatives in North Carolina to call out his home state senator, as Breitbart News reported at the time. The intense blowback on Burr, in part because of people like Murphy calling him out, caused Burr to limit the timeframe in which Trump, Jr., would be forced to testify again and the scope of questions.
Ultimately, it shows that the anti-establishment, pro-MAGA, pro-Trump movement is progressing, leading up to the 2020 election! Therefore, in the end, the 2020 election will likely be a massive pro-Trump victory, especially if the radical left-wing Democrats continue to push for their anti-American, anti-Christian, and pro-Marxist agenda!
