This victory will pave the way for Trump’s next election win…
At the special election in North Carolina’s Ninth Congressional District, President Donald Trump celebrated Dan Bishop’s apparent win on Tuesday.
“Big Rally last night. Now it looks like he is going to win,” Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to Monday night’s rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina with Bishop.
With 50.8 percent of the vote to Democrat Dan McCready’s 48.6 percent, Bishop was proclaimed the race’s victor, with 99 percent of the vote reporting.
The president said Bishop requested him for assistance, after polls three weeks earlier showed him 17 points down. Which survey the president referred to is uncertain, as most polls showed either candidate with a single-digit percentage lead.
“We changed his strategy together, and he ran a great race,” Trump wrote.
Bishop adopted the president and his agenda during his campaign, which Democrats hoped would lose, setting the tone for Republican defeat in 2020.
Trump also taunted the media covering the special election that was polling tighter than Republicans wanted.
“CNN and MSNBC are moving their big studio equipment and top talent out,” he wrote. “Stay tuned!”
