Pat Cipollone, a White House counsel to former President Donald Trump, has been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol Building, ABC News reported on Tuesday.

Cipollone late last month testified by videotape before a congressional committee investigating the events of that day. read more

ABC News, citing unnamed sources, reported that attorneys for Cipollone were expected to negotiate terms of his testimony before the grand jury.

Thousands of Trump supporters breached the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, in an attempt to stop Congress from certifying Democrat Joe Biden’s November 2020 victory.

Factbox: Key races in Arizona, Michigan, Kansas, Missouri and Washington primary elections

2022-08-03T02:56:56Z

Voters in Arizona, Michigan, Kansas, Missouri and Washington were choosing candidates for U.S. Congress, governor and other offices as former President Donald Trump’s effort to maintain dominance over the Republican Party was tested anew.

Here are the key primary races to watch:

Voters in Kansas went on record supporting the state constitution’s protection of abortion rights, according to projections by Edison Research.

The defeat of a proposed constitutional amendment declaring that there is no such right marked the first statewide electoral test of abortion rights since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

Had anti-abortion forces prevailed, the ballot question would have reversed a 2019 state Supreme Court ruling that established the right to abortion in Kansas.

Republican Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt won the state party’s nomination to run for U.S. Senate, defeating Eric Greitens, the former governor who resigned in disgrace after sexual assault and campaign finance fraud scandals.

Schmitt’s victory was a relief to many establishment Republicans who feared they might lose the seat if Greitens were nominated to replace retiring Republican Senator Roy Blunt.

U.S. Representative Vicky Hartzler also had been vying for her party’s nomination.

One day before the vote, Trump said in a statement that he supported “Eric,” refusing to say whether he was endorsing Greitens or Schmitt.

Tudor Dixon, a former steel industry businesswoman and conservative commentator who was endorsed by Trump and has echoed the ex-president’s false election fraud allegations, prevailed over a field of Republican primary candidates for governor in Michigan, Edison Research projected.

Dixon will now take on Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer, whose aggressive approach to closing down businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic has made her a top target for conservatives.

The chaotic Republican primary saw several candidates disqualified after a scandal involving falsified signatures on petitions to get on the ballot. In June, the FBI arrested candidate Ryan Kelley, a real estate broker, on misdemeanor charges stemming from the U.S. Capitol attack, though he continued to campaign.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, who had Trump’s endorsement, defeated an under-funded opponent in the Republican contest. He will challenge incumbent Democratic Governor Laura Kelly, who is among the most vulnerable Democratic governors, in November.

The Republican contenders include former news anchor Kari Lake, who is endorsed by Trump and has echoed his false claims that the 2020 election was fraudulent. Her main rival is developer Karrin Taylor Robson, who is backed by several establishment Republicans including Trump’s former vice president, Mike Pence, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey.

On the Democratic side, the leading candidate is Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs who has built a national profile by vociferously denying Trump’s allegations. She is facing Marco Lopez, a former Obama administration official and former mayor of Nogales, a border city.

A bitter fight to decide who will challenge incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Kelly in November has come down to three Republican candidates. Blake Masters, chief operating officer of Thiel Capital and president of the Thiel Foundation, has the financial backing of tech billionaire Peter Thiel and Trump’s endorsement. Recent polling shows him leading state attorney general Mark Brnovich and Jim Lamon, a former power company executive.

On the Republican side, the front-runner is Trump-endorsed state Representative Mark Finchem, who was present at the Jan. 6, 2021, rally that preceded the attack on the U.S. Capitol and has embraced Trump’s stolen election claims. He faces several opponents. The Democratic contest pits former Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes against state House of Representatives Minority Leader Reginald Bolding.

Incumbent Representative Peter Meijer, one of the 10 Republicans to vote for Trump’s second impeachment, is facing a primary challenge from John Gibbs, a former Trump administration official who has the former president’s endorsement. Meijer is a moderate Republican in a district that Democrats see as a potential pickup. The campaign arm for House Democrats angered some supporters by running ads to promote Gibbs, who is seen as an easier target in November.

Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler, one of 10 Republicans to vote for Trump’s impeachment in 2021, is facing a primary challenge from Joe Kent, a former Green Beret officer who has been endorsed by Trump. Herrera Beutler has held the seat since 2010.

Kansas voters back abortion rights as Trump-backed candidates prevail

2022-08-03T03:05:27Z

Voters in Kansas on Tuesday rejected a ballot measure that would have allowed lawmakers to restrict or ban abortion, Edison Research projected, while candidates backed by Donald Trump won Republican nominations for governor in Kansas and Michigan.

The Kansas vote on whether to remove abortion protections from the state constitution – and potentially allow Republican lawmakers to restrict or ban the procedure – was the first such ballot measure since the U.S. Supreme Court eliminated a nationwide right to abortion in June.

Elsewhere in the five states holding primary elections ahead of the Nov. 8 midterm elections, candidates endorsed by the former president locked up Republican nominations.

In Michigan, Tudor Dixon, a conservative commentator who has echoed Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election was stolen, won the Republican nomination for governor and will face Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer in one of the fall’s most high-profile races.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, another Trump-backed candidate, secured the Republican nomination for governor. He will face Democratic Governor Laura Kelly in November in what is expected to be a highly competitive race.

With 78% of the expected vote tallied, the Kansas abortion restrictions was opposed by 62% of voters, with 38% supporting it.

Unlike the Republican gubernatorial primaries, in which only registered Republicans were able to vote, Kansas’ abortion initiative reflected the choices of voters of both major political parties, as well as independents.

In Missouri, Attorney General Eric Schmitt won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, boosting his party’s chances of holding the seat after scandal-hit former Governor Eric Greitens finished well behind.

Tuesday’s elections represent the latest test of Trump’s sway over the Republican electorate, also including key contests in Arizona and Washington state. Several Trump-backed candidates have embraced the former president’s falsehoods about voter fraud, raising concerns among some Republicans that they could be too extreme to defeat Democrats on Nov. 8. read more

The party appeared to have dodged that bullet in Missouri, where Greitens – who resigned the governorship in the midst of sexual assault and campaign finance fraud scandals – had attempted a political comeback. U.S. Representative Vicky Hartzler, whom Trump had criticized, had also run.

Late on Monday, Trump recommended voters choose either Schmitt or Greitens, with a statement that simply endorsed “Eric.” Both candidates immediately claimed to have his endorsement. read more

Two Republican U.S. representatives who voted to impeach Trump after the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the Capitol by Trump supporters, Peter Meijer of Michigan and Jamie Herrera Beutler of Washington, also faced Trump-endorsed primary challengers.

With an economy teetering on the brink of recession and inflation surging, just 38% of Americans approve of President Joe Biden’s job performance, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll completed on Tuesday – still near Biden’s record low of 36%, hit in May. One in three voters said the biggest problem facing the United States today is the economy.

Biden’s unpopularity is weighing on Democrats heading into the November general election, when Republicans are favored to win control of the House of Representatives and perhaps the Senate.

Control of either chamber would give Republicans the power to stymie Biden’s legislative agenda while launching politically damaging hearings.

As he flirts publicly with the possibility of running for president again in 2024, Trump has endorsed more than 200 candidates. Most are safe bets – incumbent Republicans in conservative districts – but even in competitive races he has had a winning record.

Trump-backed nominees have won Republican primaries for U.S. Senate in Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania, though his picks lost nominating contests for Georgia governor and for the U.S. House in South Carolina.

“Trump remains really popular with Republican primary voters. I don’t think you can underestimate how he has remade the party in his image,” said Alex Conant, a Republican strategist. “Republicans who run against Trump tend to get trampled.”

On Tuesday, Arizona voters were picking between Trump-backed gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake and Karrin Taylor Robson, who has the backing of Trump’s former vice president, Mike Pence.

Lake, a former news anchor, echoes Trump’s false claims that his 2020 election defeat was the result of fraud and has said she would not have certified Biden’s statewide victory in 2020. At a recent campaign stop, Lake claimed without evidence that fraud has already occurred during early voting, suggesting she may not accept a defeat on Tuesday.

The race for secretary of state – the state’s top election official – also includes a Trump-endorsed candidate, state Representative Mark Finchem, who was present at Trump’s Jan. 6, 2021, speech in Washington that preceded the U.S. Capitol attack. He wrote on Twitter on Thursday, “Trump won,” prompting a Democratic candidate, Adrian Fontes, to call him a “traitor.”

Arizona Republicans were picking a challenger to take on Democratic U.S. Senator Mark Kelly, seen as one of the most vulnerable Democratic incumbents.

Blake Masters, a former tech executive who has backed Trump’s false fraud claims, has Trump’s endorsement and the backing of tech billionaire Peter Thiel. He is leading in polls against Jim Lamon, a former power company executive, and Attorney General Mark Brnovich, whom Trump blames for not reversing Biden’s 2020 statewide victory.
