Senator Elizabeth Warren, one of the most anti-Trump Senators in Washington will face a former Trump campaign co-chairman from Massachusetts, Geoff Diehl.
According to The Hill:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is set to square off against Republican Geoff Diehl, who was President Trump’s campaign co-chairman in Massachusetts, in the state’s Senate race.
Diehl, a state representative, emerged the winner in the deep-blue state’s Republican primary, The Associated Press projected. He won with 55 percent of the vote, defeating wealthy business executive John Kingston and Beth Lindstrom, a former aide to Gov. Mitt Romney (R).
Warren, who faced no primary challenger, is the favorite to win a second term in November.
Trump lost Massachusetts by 27 points in 2016. The Massachusetts congressional delegation consists entirely of Democrats, though the state has a popular Republican governor, Charlie Baker, who’s also expected to win reelection this fall.
The Republicans will look to use this as an opportunity to attack the Senator as she mulls the possibility of running for president in 2020.
