After a disappointing result in last Tuesday’s Republican North Carolina primary, in which Greg Brannon lost to Thom Tillis, Glenn began this morning’s radio program with the exciting news that Ben Sasse won yesterday’s Nebraska primary in convincing fashion. Sasse will now face off against Democratic challenger David Domina in the November midterm election to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by retiring Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE).
“First, let’s start with the Ben Sasse news. It is really good news,” Glenn said. “It appears Ben Sasse has won by a landslide.”
According to POLITICO, Sasse had received approximately half of the vote with 92% of precincts reporting. It looked like Shane Osborn finished third in the race with about 21 percent of the vote. Omaha banker Sid Dinsdale placed second with 22%.
Polls leading up to the election showed Sasse enjoyed a 14-point, so his margin of victory beat expectations.
“This gives me a lot of hope for Matt Bevin next week because Matt Bevin, last we saw, was supposedly down by 17,” Pat said. “Maybe he wins by 8. I don’t know. Maybe there are [voters] just waiting in the wings, and they’re going to go out and vote.”
Regardless of how next Tuesday’s Kentucky primary shakes out, Glenn encouraged his listeners to get out and vote and show their support in any way possible.
“Maybe, maybe not,” Glenn concluded. “Whatever will be will be, and it will all be for our good. But we have to get out and do our part. We have to go out and actually vote. And wow, did the Tea Party stomp last night.”
