    Huelskamp loses in primary

    Huelskamp loses in primary

    By Lisa Hagen



    Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) is projected to lose his GOP primary, making him the fourth House incumbent this cycle to be defeated in a primary.

    Huelskamp, a House Freedom Caucus member who helped push out former Speaker John Boehner, was defeated by physician Roger Marshall in a primary for a safe Republican seat.

    He now joins Reps. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.), Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.) and Randy Forbes (R-Va.), who all lost primaries this year.

    The race was close after polls closed, and Huelskamp's campaign asked the media to leave its watch party in Hutchinson, Kan., as it waited for results, according to The Associated Press. The AP called the race close to 11:30 p.m. Eastern.

    Conservative groups that are typically allies found themselves on opposite sides of the Kansas primary fight.

    The Kansas Farm Bureau and Ending Spending Action Fund opposed Huelskamp for his vote against the farm bill. He was kicked off of the Agriculture and Budget committees in recent years for frequently bucking Boehner and establishment Republicans.

    But the Kansas Republican received support from the Club for Growth and the Koch network.

    New York Times Chief Washington Correspondent Carl Hulse tweeted a picture of Boehner enjoy a glass of red wine as he awaited a final result.

    Roger Marshall was backed by the Chamber of Commerce and is an open borders/amnesty Republican it seems.

    It's pretty hard to win an election in Kansas voting against a Farm Bill. I don't know which is worse to be backed by that awful Club for Growth like he was or the Chamber of Commerce like Marshall. I guess we'll find out.

    Huelskamp did not support illegal immigrant amnesty. He was also a part of getting rid of John Boehner as Speaker of the House and voted against Ryan's budget that gave Obama everything he wanted.

    Huelskamp challenger is Pro-Trump. Running Pro-Trump campaign ads in his district. CNN doing a story on it now.

    Roger Marshall beat Huelskamp.

    Mr. Huelskamp did not support Donald Trump but he was a reliable vote against amnesty. That is what we need. Having the Chamber of Commerce support you makes one wonder.

    Too many amnesty traders still in Washington and now there is possibly one more.

    He wasn't very nice about his opposition to Trump. I keep thinking many of those who have railed against Trump will come around.
