It is fair game. Remember when two people stole OJ's memorabilia from him? What he did do? He went and get it himself and I would have done the same. I agree with Eric Trump.

In western Colorado, firebrand Republican Representative Lauren Boebert was projected by Edison to defeat challenger Don Coram, who had argued that she is too extreme. In Illinois, Republican Representative Mary Miller was projected to defeat Representative Rodney Davis in an unusual primary contest that pit two incumbents against one another as the state lost a congressional seat due to its shrinking population. Miller caused controversy at a rally with Trump on Saturday when she said that the Supreme Court's decision to revoke the nationwide right to abortion was a "victory for white life." Miller's aides say she meant to say "right to life," but Davis says it is further evidence that she is unfit for office, citing previous controversial comments.

Miller was endorsed by Trump and has backed his false claims of a stolen election. Davis, by contrast, broke with his party last year to back the congressional inquiry into the Jan. 6 attack. With Biden's approval ratings underwater, Republicans are favored to win control of the House of Representatives, where they need to flip only five Democratic seats for a majority, and could also take over the Senate. A Republican-controlled House could stymie Biden's legislative agenda and launch politically damaging investigations into his administration.

In the Chicago suburbs, Democratic Representative Sean Casten led rival Marie Newman in a similar battle between incumbents for a newly drawn seat. Another one of Trump's picks, Illinois state senator Darren Bailey, was projected by Edison Research to win the Republican nomination for governor over Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin, a more moderate Republican who was seen as a greater threat to incumbent Democratic Governor J.B. Pritzker. In New York, incumbent Governor Kathy Hochul was projected by Edison Research to win the Democratic nomination over two rivals.

Hochul took the job last year when former Governor Andrew Cuomo resigned while facing sexual harassment allegations. Register now for FREE unlimited access to Reuters.com Register Reporting by Andy Sullivan and Jason Lange, Editing by Ross Colvin and Alistair Bell Our Standards: .
