GOP Establishment Prevails In Primary Races

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

On Tuesday, voters in North Carolina, Ohio and Indiana cast ballots in several key primary races.

North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis won the Republican U.S. Senate nomination in North Carolina — a victory for the GOP in a battleground state that will feature one of the nation’s most competitive Senate races this fall.

In Ohio, House Speaker John Boehner also beat out his Tea Party challengers in his Ohio congressional district, and first-term GOP incumbent David Joyce held off against Rep. Matt Lynch.

In fact, every U.S. House incumbent on the ballot Tuesday in the three states that voted won re-nomination. NPR’s Digital Politics Editor Charlie Mahtesian joins Here & Now’s Robin Young to discuss these primary results.
