Rep. Renee Ellmers Loses Primary Fight, Despite Donald Trump Endorsement
by DR. SUSAN BERRY7 Jun 20161,030
Incumbent North Carolina Rep. Renee Ellmers – the first Republican member of Congress endorsed by presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump – decisively lost her primary battle Tuesday to her colleague, Rep. George Holding.
Ellmers came to Congress in the 2010 Tea Party wave, but abandoned her conservative principles after her election. She voted in favor of President Barack Obama’s 2014 executive amnesty and his funding for Syrian refugees, and she led a charge to shelve the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in 2015 on the eve of the March for Life. She justified her opposition by saying the measure would negatively affect the GOP with women and millennial voters.http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/06/07/donald-trumps-first-congressional-endorsement-renee-ellmers-loses-primary-fight/
Did she lose because Trump endorsed her, or because she turned against Conservatives?
