Infamous right-wing Virginia Congresswoman Barbara Comstock easily wins primary challenge

Published

on

Republican Shak Hill was unsuccessful in an attempt to dethrone Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-VA) in a district that has turned increasingly more moderate in past elections.

The 10th district runs from West Virginia through Loudoun County and Prince William County, which is just outside of Washington, D.C. While Mitt Romney won the district in 2012 by just two points, the district voted for Hillary Clinton 10 percent over President Donald Trump.

Hill ran to the right of Comstock in the campaign and there are six Democrats in the race eager to fight for the Trump-hating district.

Both the president and Mike Pence were last in Virginia to campaign for the 2017 gubernatorial election in which Republican candidate Ed Gillespie ran using talking Trump talking points. He lost overwhelmingly.

Comstock will face off against state Sen. Jennifer Wexton in one of the most competitive races of the 2018 midterms.

Here’s how a new study implies the Supreme Court has killed 16,000 people since 2012

A new paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research looked into the effects of the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion to people below 138 percent of the poverty line, which has seen nearly 15 million people enrolled in participating states. The results were encouraging: the mortality rate for near-elderly adults has dropped over 9 percent in the four years for which data is available.

But while this is cause for celebration, The Atlantic staff writer Annie Lowrey offered a darker take on the implications of these numbers:
