The race in North Carolina’s 9th district was billed as a bellwether election, a test of President’s Trump pull today vs. 2016. Despite being outspent, per CBS News, Republican Dan Bishop won over Democrat Dan McCready. Hot news just a day or 2 ago, this is hardly a blip on the radar for many news outlets today. Some stressed how close it was, suggesting that was a warning for Republicans. But if so, Bishop’s vote total outperformed a prior special election in this same district which was nullified based on voter fraud concerns. That and how Senator Elizabeth Warren’s campaign responded to a CNBC report will be our twin foci tonight.

Tonight’s Business/Market/Political Impact Spotlight –
Republican Dan Bishop won the closely-watched special election for North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District. CBS News director of elections and surveys, Anthony Salvanto, examined the results, while Nick Ochsner of CBS Charlotte affiliate WBTV provides a granular look from North Carolina.
What isn’t mentioned in the report above is that the NC 9th district was redrawn in 2016, per Wikipedia and other sources, because it was considered a jerrymandered district by the courts. Not only is the win a win, but it was a victory with a more level playing field and with Democrats outspending the GOP, per CBS News. That said, the left-of-center CBS video is reasonably fair and balanced.
The right-of-center Fox and Friends video is from a program widely considered to be pro-Trump. An interview this morning with Dan Bishop has him giving much praise and thanks to the White House.
The Word on Senator Elizabeth Warren
Generally left-of-center CNBC’s Jim Cramer, who has been rather positive on several of President Trump’s policies and steps, said yesterday that his contacts on Wall Street are expressing concern about the rise of Senator Elizabeth Warren.
The Warren Campaign used that to fund raise off of, as the screen capture below reflects.
According to that fundraising email, “According to the article, Wall Street executives believe “it would be a suboptimal situation for the banks” if Elizabeth were to win the Democratic nomination.
It could be because Elizabeth has taken on the big banks and Wall Street CEOs before, and won.
Maybe they’re scared of Elizabeth’s plan to stop Wall Street from looting our economy. Or her proposal for an Ultra-Millionaire Tax, which would pay for Universal Child Care and early education, canceling student loan debt, universal free two-year and four-year public college and technical school, and then some.
Or maybe it’s because Elizabeth’s plans will put American workers ahead of corporate profits and bonuses.
Whatever has them nervous, this headline says that we’re doing everything right. They want our movement to stop. But it’s only growing stronger.
Elizabeth is running to be the best president that their money can’t buy. And her ideas for big, structural change have Wall Street executives shaking in their freshly polished leather shoes. They know we can win. But we can’t do this without you.”
That’s shared for several reasons. One, because it accurately represents what Team Warren did. That was a clever way to play off what some might have seen as a problematic report for her campaign.
But two, the tone of her message is very much as was previously reported in the article linked below.
