Curtis Sliwa talks victory
The founder of the Guardian Angels won the Republican primary for mayor of New York City. He told Good Day New York that he’s “the real deal.”
NEW YORK – Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa has won the Republican mayoral primary in New York City.
Sliwa defeated businessman Fernando Mateo. Ranked choice voting wasnt a factor because there were only two candidates in the race.
Former allies, the two Republicans Sliwa and Mateo traded personal insults and tried to shout over each other during one debate on Zoom.
Sliwa wins GOP primary
Radio host and Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa is projected to win the Republican nomination for mayor of New York.
Sliwa, a radio host who still wears his red Guardian Angels beret when he appears in public, got an endorsement from former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who called him “my great friend” in a robocall to Republican voters.
Mateo, a restaurateur who has led organizations advocating for car service drivers and bodega owners, was endorsed by Michael Flynn, former president Donald Trumps first national security adviser.
Voters Who Think Trump Won Are The Most Enthusiastic To Vote In 2022
Analysis by Harry Enten, CNN
The Democrats only have a US Senate majority because they were able to win two Senate runoffs in Georgia in January. Those Democratic wins were made possible by lower turnout among Republican-leaning voters, who may have been deterred from voting after then-President Donald Trump falsely claimed that the November 2020 election was fraudulent and that the runoffs were “illegal and invalid.”
Early March 201: Between Super Tuesdays
After Super Tuesday voting, but before winner-take-all voting was to begin, nine states, two territories and Washington, D.C. held their primaries and caucuses. During this period, 377 delegates were at stake. On March 3, 2016, the day before Carson dropped out of the race, Romney criticized Trump in a heavily publicized speech. Later that day, there was another GOP debate, which again featured Trump, Cruz, Rubio and Kasich. Carson did not participate in the debate, as he announced the suspension of his campaign the next day, narrowing the field to four he subsequently endorsed Trump on March 10, 2016, the day after Fiorina endorsed Cruz. Meanwhile, as the prospect of a Trump nomination became more imminent, establishment Republicans pressured Romney or House Speaker Paul Ryan to enter the race Romney had already decided not to enter the race on January 30, 2015, while Ryan announced he would not enter on April 13, 2016.
In the Virgin Islands caucuses on March 10, a slate composed wholly of uncommitted delegates was initially elected. However, the entire slate was later disqualified by the territorial party and was replaced by the elected alternates two uncommitted, two for Rubio and one each for Cruz and Trump. The dispute later went to court. Also on March 10, there was a debate in Florida between the four surviving candidates, which was conducted in a more civil tone than prior debates.

Spencer Cox Wins Republican Primary Race For Utah Governor Over Jon Huntsman
Utah Republican gubernatorial candidate Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox greets supporters arriving to an election night event in Mount Pleasant on Tuesday, June 30, 2020. The AP called the GOP primary race for Cox over Jon Huntsman on Monday after days of ballot counting.
Lt. Gov Spencer Cox, a Fairview farmer with a brand as a compassionate conservative, has bested Jon Huntsman, the former Utah governor who was seeking a third term, in the closely watched Republican primary race for Utah governor.
The Associated Press called the race in Coxs favor shortly after 4 p.m. Monday.
Cox said in a statement that he and his running mate, Spanish Fork state Sen. Deidre Henderson, were humbled by the vote of confidence from the people of Utah in selecting us as the Republican nominees for governor and lieutenant governor.
As farm kids from Sanpete County, Abby and I never dreamed of having this opportunity, he continued. If elected in November, we will take our rural values of hard work, honesty, and responsibility to the governors office each day.
Cox said on Twitter that Huntsman had called to concede in the race Monday afternoon.
In a statement released later that day, the former Utah governor said that he would accept the will of the people, as is our tradition as Americans.
Huntsman didnt indicate what would come next for him but said that public service is in our blood and that he would continue to find a way to contribute to the good of our community.
Trump Set To Meet With Liz Cheneys Primary Opponents
The Republican establishment defeats Trumpism in a key New Jersey contest.
Former New Jersey Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli defeated rival Republicans, who claimed the ex-presidents mantle, to win the states Republican gubernatorial primary Tuesday.
Ciattarelli will now face Democratic incumbent Gov. Phil Murphy who won an uncontested primary race in Novembers general election.
The GOP nominee defeated three challengers two of them vocal Trump supporters on the strength of his support from the Garden States party establishment, which delivered him prime ballot positioning. Ciattarelli announced his plans to challenge Murphy three years ago.
Hirsh Singh, an engineer from Atlantic County, and Phil Rizzo, a Hudson County pastor and former real estate developer, both appealed to Trump supporters to win the partys nod in the blue state.
Ciattarelli downplayed the rivals claims that he was a never-Trumper, saying he evolved from his original criticism of the one-term president, and supported him in 2020.
A whole lot of us said a whole lot of things, he said during an interview on WPMG. He earned my faith and confidence in the sense that his policies worked for the nation.
Ciattarellis attacks were largely focused on the current head of Trentons statehouse, as he blasted Murphy on his handling of COVID-19 and property taxes.
He raised $7 million in the race, a figure surpassed by only Murphy.

Cancellation Of State Caucuses Or Primaries
The Washington Examiner reported on December 19, 2018, that the South Carolina Republican Party had not ruled out forgoing a primary contest to protect Trump from any primary challengers. Party chairman Drew McKissick stated, “Considering the fact that the entire party supports the president, we’ll end up doing what’s in the president’s best interest.” On January 24, another Washington Examiner report indicated that the Kansas Republican Party was “likely” to scrap its presidential caucus to “save resources”.
In August 2019, the Associated Press reported that the Nevada Republican Party was also contemplating canceling their caucuses, with the state party spokesman, Keith Schipper, saying it “isn’t about any kind of conspiracy theory about protecting the president … He’s going to be the nominee … This is about protecting resources to make sure that the president wins in Nevada and that Republicans up and down the ballot win in 2020.”
Kansas, Nevada and South Carolina’s state committees officially voted on September 7, 2019, to cancel their caucus and primary. The Arizona state Republican Party indicated two days later that it will not hold a primary. These four were joined by the Alaska state Republican party on September 21, when its central committee announced they would not hold a presidential primary.
Virginia Republicans decided to allocate delegates at the state convention.

The dates of many caucuses reflect the last day of a meeting period or the day of the straw poll in question. These events sometimes take days, weeks, or even months. In a few cases, the maps denote that a state used a two-step caucus and primary system, in some order, to determine delegates.

Questions Raised About Felon Who Won Gop Congress Primary
GAINESVILLE, Fla. The winning Republican in this weeks congressional primary in South Florida is a felon who did not go through the states process to restore his civil rights after his imprisonment, interviews and records show. That step is required under Florida law for a candidate to hold political office.
Jason Mariner, 36, of Palm Beach Gardens, an advertising executive and self-described America First conservative candidate, won Tuesdays GOP primary with 58 percent of votes in the heavily Democratic 20th congressional district.
It wasnt immediately clear whether the elections outcome would be challenged. The general election will be Jan. 11. Democrats have held the seat one of the most Democratic districts in Florida for more than two decades.
Under new clemency rules Gov. Ron DeSantis announced earlier this year, felons are automatically entitled to have their rights restored including the right to hold political office but must submit to a formal process administered by the Florida Commission on Offender Review and Office of Executive Clemency. Under a constitutional amendment that Florida voters approved in 2020, felons can register to vote once they serve their prison terms and pay any court fines.
Florida records did not include any evidence that Mariners rights had been restored. Mariner signed a sworn statement in August he sent to the Florida Division of Elections attesting that he was qualified to run for Congress in Florida.
