ながら Republican Pennsylvania Senate primary has gobbled up much of the media coverage in the state, the Democratic primary for the state’s 12th Congressional District has been a bruising battle between the party’s establishment and progressive factions.

Pennsylvania state Rep. Summer Lee, a far-left progressive, who is looking to take retiring Rep. Mike Doyle’s, D-Penn., vacating seat.

THE NEXT AOC? FRONT-RUNNER FOR PA SEAT IS DEM SOCIALIST BACKED BY BERNIE, WARREN

リー, A “分隊”-backed democratic socialist, is facing down Steve Irwin, an attorney and activist in western Pennsylvania who supports a single-payer healthcare system but has differentiated himself from Lee on account of his strong pro-Israel stance.

The AIPAC-affiliated United Democracy Project, a pro-Israel super PAC, has dumped money into the race on behalf of Irwin. Other Jewish organizations, including the Democratic Majority for Israel and Pro-Israel America, have thrown their weight behind Irwin as well.

Lee has faced scrutiny from Jewish groups for her statements about the Israel-Palestine conflict, including comparing it to the murder of George Floyd.

With the district’s heavy lean toward the Democrats, it is likely that whoever wins the blue primary will win the new seat. The district includes the Tree of Life synagogue, which was the site of a 2018 mass shooting that killed 11 congregants.

Lee isn’t without her own heavyweight backers, including Sens. バーニーサンダース, I-Vt., and Elizabeth Warren, D-マス. She’s also endorsed several socialist ideals — including the redistribution of wealth — as well as controversial progressive policies like abolishing thecarceral system.

Instead of ‘thankingBlack women, Black voters, and especially, Black organizersgive us the investments we need and deserve, redistribute wealth, ends police violence, abolish the carceral state, commit to building Black directed political powerand reparations,” Lee tweeted in November 2020.

Oregon is seeing a similar battle play out between Rep. Kurt Schrader, D時間。, and his challenger Jamie McLeod-Skinner.

ザ・ cowboy congressman received a potential primary boon through his 承認 by President Biden, who threw his hat behind the Oregon Democrat in light of his vote against the president’s $ 1.9 trillion spending bill.

We don’t always agree, but when it has mattered most, Kurt has been there for me,” Biden said in a statement released by the Schrader campaign. “And in doing so, he has helped to pass much of my agenda into law—making a huge difference in the lives of the Oregonians he represents and all of America.

Now we have a lot more to do, and to get it done we need to keep a Democratic Congress,” バイデンが追加されました.

McLeod-Skinner has staked out strong progressive positions and made the issue of abortion a central tenet of her campaign, even hitting Schrader for praising the Hyde Amendment after voting against it — an amendment McLeod-Skinner callsodious.

The Hyde Amendment is a federal law that prevents federal funds from going toward abortions except in the cases of incest, レイプ, or when the mother’s life is in danger.

McLeod-Skinner has received backing from county Democrat officials, in contrast to Schrader’s support from national Democrats.

Republicans aren’t free from a potential primary shake-up, いずれか.

Tillis endorsed Cawthorn’s primary opponent, Republican state Senator Chuck Edwards, 3月, saying he believes Edwards to be thebest choicefor the seat. Tillis has also called for an 調査 into alleged insider trading by the young congressman via cryptocurrency.

The 11th Congressional District deserves a congressman who is fully dedicated to serving their constituents. 残念ながら, Madison Cawthorn has fallen well short of the most basic standards Western North Carolina expects from their representatives, and voters now have several well-qualified candidates to choose from who would be a significant improvement,” ティリスは言った. “I believe Chuck Edwards is the best choice.

The freshman Republican is also reportedly not seeing much public support for his re-election efforts from other members of the North Carolina delegation.

Cawthorn’s primary has gotten a lot of media attention after several leaks of controversial photos and videos have made their rounds online and on-air. The freshman Republican called the several photo and video drops as adrip drip campaign” あれは “blackmail.”

The footage surfaced amid several of the congressman’s controversies, including where he claimed his GOP colleagues had ripped lines of cocaine in front of him and invited him to orgies.

しかしながら, Cawthorn secured the 承認 of former President Trump, who called on voters to give the freshman asecond chanceafter hisfoolish mistakes.

“で 18 年齢, マディソン・コーソーン, the now 26 year old Congressman from the Great State of North Carolina, went through a life changing event the likes of which, 幸運, few people will ever have to endure,” Trump wrote on Truth Social over the weekend.

In just seconds, he lost the use of the lower half of his body, a traumatic experience to say the least. When Madison was first elected to Congress, he did a great job,” 彼は続けた. “最近, he made some foolish mistakes, which I don’t believe he’ll make againlet’s give Madison a second chance!”

Trump’s endorsement is a boon for Cawthorn in the ruby-red district he’s running for re-election in, but whether that will trump local North Carolina endorsements is yet to be seen.
