(Reuters) – Democrats preached optimism on Wednesday after losing a special congressional election in North Carolina, citing suburban gains and the close margin in a district President Donald Trump won by 12 percentage points as signs of strength going into 2020.
But the results from Tuesday’s vote also showed a deepening divide between rural voters and the Democratic Party in the state’s 9th District – a schism Trump and other Republicans are certain to exploit in next year’s elections.
The article goes on to state the following:
“There are still Blue Dog Democrats in the district who feel more and more that the party has left them with the super-liberal views,” said Phillip Stephens, chairman of the Republican Party in Robeson County, which sits in the 9th District.
“I should know, I was one of them,” he said, referring to centrist and conservative Democrats.
