President Donald Trump won’t have a primary in April, but Republican Chairman Nick Langworthy said that GOP voters would still turnout for important special elections.
“There’s nothing I’d be more excited about getting the vote out for President Trump,” Langworthy said. “But Bill Weld’s efforts were so pathetic he couldn’t field delegates.”
The 27th District is one of those places where a contested race is likely, and Republicans could have trouble keeping the seat held.
Langworthy believes that Trump will still motivate voters, though. He thinks Governor Andrew Cuomo’s unpopularity could also fuel it.
Sen. Chris Jacobs, the Republican, will face-off against Democrat Nate McMurray in the special election in April.
