WASHINGTON, DC (WBEN) - President Donald Trump is reinforcing his support of Chris Jacobs for Congress. In a series of tweets Tuesday morning, the President shared his complete and total endorsement for Jacobs, who is running against Nate McMurray for the 27th District Congressional seat, once occupied by ex-Congressman Chris Collins.
It's the second time Trump has endorsed Jacobs. "This is kind of a reinforcement of a previous endorsement," said Republican strategist Carl Calabrese.
It is entirely possible that there could be two outcomes on June 23rd. One for the special election and another for the Republican primary. "That makes this a confusing election and an interesting one to watch," said Calabrese. "The person who wins the special election could lose the primary. That would mean that the person who wins the special election would be a member of Congress from June until January 1st. The winner of the November election would take the seat in January.
