The election was held to fill the House seat vacated by CIA Director Mike Pompeo, a former three-term representative of Kansas' 4th district. After all, if a Democrat could win a district that Trump won big, why couldn't a Democrat win a district Republicans only carried by single digits?

Trump tweeted about the race Tuesday morning, urging voters to get out and support Estes over his Democratic challenger.

In the final days of the special election campaign, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) funneled $92,000 into the race on behalf of Estes-$67,000 went to TV advertising in the Wichita market, the largest city in the state and home of GOP mega-donors Charles and David Koch.

When a candidate wins, as Republican Ron Estes did in the special election Tuesday for the 4th Congressional District seat, he has the opportunity to sound gracious, to unify disparate constituencies.

Estes was first elected state treasurer in 2010.

Sanders said Thompson's finish bodes well for progressives in areas where they're not starting as far behind in party registration as in south-central Kansas.

Trump says 'very unusual moves' made with regard to N. Korea
The statement , which was tabled by the USA , would also tell North Korea not to conduct further nuclear tests. Since 2008, photographer Eric Lafforgue ventured to North Korea six times .

A win is a win - and Republicans avoided the catastrophic outcome of losing in a congressional district where President Donald Trump won by 27 points last November.

The special election was closely watched for any anti-Trump backlash against Republicans. Very few voters turn out for these special contests compared to regular November elections, making it hard to read too much into the results without risking inaccurate interpretations.

The 60-year-old state treasurer defeated Democrat James Thompson, a civil rights attorney.

National leaders from both parties have taken note, indicating the closeness and urgency of the race.

Democratic National Committee member and Daily Kos member Chris Reeves said Tuesday that the blog set up its donation site last week.

Only Sedgwick County showed Thompson ahead of Estes. Candidates in special elections also don't have the advantages held by incumbents.

Republicans have represented the district since Todd Tiahrt unseated veteran Democratic Rep. Dan Glickman in 1994. The state's jungle primary happened April 4 and two Democrats, Robert Lee Ahn and Jimmy Gomez, were the top vote getters.

Included among them was Belle Plaine homemaker Charlene Health, 52, who cast her vote for Estes. He said he and his wife, Crystal, voted for Republican Ron Estes "just to support Trump".

"Some people are saying you know, 'I'm a little nervous I don't know what to do, '" Lewis said on MSNBC while discussing why Democrats should stay engaged and organized to challenge the Trump administration and Republican lawmakers.

It was a victory for Trump as much as it was a victory for The Republican candidate.

The Democratic candidate is the fresh face with the uplifting message, which is why Republicans could be looking at an outright defeat in Georgia's 6th district House special election. "A wonderful guy, I need his help on Healthcare & Tax Cuts (Reform)".
