Republicans Hold Montana Senate Seat With Daines Victory

Source: Bloomberg

Republican Senator Steve Daines of Montana won a second term, the Associated Press projected, beating two-term Democratic Governor Steve Bullock.

The contest between Daines, an ex-software executive and ally of President Donald Trump, was one of the most expensive and competitive races for the Senate this year.

Democrats need a net gain of three seats to take control of the Senate if Joe Biden wins the presidency, or four if Trump is re-elected.

Newly elected Republican Madison Cawthorn's election night message: "Cry more, lib."

Republican Madison Cawthorn Who Visited Hitler's Vacation Home Is Now the Youngest Member of Congress

The future youngest member of Congress had a message for his opponents after he won his race for a House seat in North Carolina Tuesday night: “Cry more, lib.”

Republican Madison Cawthorn, 25, defeated Democrat Moe Davis to win North Carolina’s 11th District, a seat once held by White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Embraced by the right as a rising star after his surprise victory in the primary, Cawthorn has already seen his fair share of controversy for his visit to a property where Adolf Hitler vacationed as well as his campaign’s description of New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker.

Cawthorn has also faced criticism for apparently referring to the far-right on Instagram and in the name of his LLC, which were first uncovered by Jezebel. The 11th district, however, is dominated by Republicans, which meant that Cawthorn’s win was expected after the primary.

Alongside a photo of himself visiting a home in Germany once patronized by Hitler—who Cawthorn called “the Führer”—the young Republican also wrote that seeing the property “has been on my bucket list for awhile.” The photo predated the campaign by several years, although Instagram’s method of dating makes it difficult to decipher exactly when it was posted.

“Strange to hear so many laughs and share such a good time with my brother where only 79 years ago a supreme evil shared laughs and good times with his compatriots,” he wrote in the caption.

John Hickenlooper projected to win Colorado Senate race, a pickup for Democrats

Source: CNBC

John Hickenlooper is projected to win Colorado's Senate race, flipping a key seat to Democratic control, according to NBC News.

The former Colorado governor will defeat first-term Republican Sen. Cory Gardner. Democrats aim to cut into the GOP's 53-47 Senate majority in the 2020 election.

Gardner faced one of the toughest paths to reelection in the Senate as Colorado drifted further into blue territory during his first term. The 46-year-old walked a political tightrope as he supported the GOP's swift and divisive confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett but touted bipartisan work on issues such as public lands preservation.

Former two-term Democratic Gov. Hickenlooper, like his party's Senate challengers around the country, ran on a health-care focused platform. He had also criticized the Senate for its inability to pass coronavirus relief as infections spiked around the country ahead of the election.
