Stewart Wins Primary To Take On Kaine

A conservative provocateur and supporter of President Donald Trump won Virginia’s Republican primary Tuesday in the U.S. Senate race, and he has promised to run a “vicious” campaign against incumbent Tim Kaine. No Democrats challenged Kaine, a former governor and 2016 vice-presidential candidate. Republican Corey Stewart had long been on the fringe of the state’s GOP; the win makes him the standard-bearer of a divided party that hasn’t won a statewide race in nearly a decade.
