Republican who hails abortion decision as victory for ‘White Life’ wins Primary House

An Illinois congressman who said she mistakenly called the Supreme Court’s recent abortion decision “a victory for white life” said Tuesday, Rodney Davis, a fellow member of the GOP House for five terms, in a rare pre-election in which two incumbents acted against each other.

Rep. Mary Miller was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, who held a rally with her on Saturday. Miller praised Trump for appointing judges who overthrew Roe v Wade and called it a “historic victory for white life.”

Davis, a five-term incumbent, rose rapidly in the ranks of the House Republican Conference. The top Republican on the Home Administration Committeehad he been the favorite to take the presidency hammer in 2023, Republicans would have won the House of Representatives.

Miller’s victory, despite the blaps, is likely to be seen as a sign of Trump’s power with party believers. Miller voted against the certification of the 2020 election results in Arizona and Pennsylvania, where Trump lost, while Davis voted in favor of certification.

Trump has left little doubt that he intends to see Republicans who voted to certify the 2020 election or accuse him lose in their by-elections. Already one of those in favor of prosecution, Rep. Tom Rice (SC) lost his primary handy after Trump endorsed his opponent.

Tuesday’s member-to-member primary was forced by Illinois to lose a home seat due to the redistribution of congressional seats that follows a new U.S. census population estimate every 10 years.

Miller and Davis competed to be the Republican nominee for the new 15th District of Illinois, which is considered a likely safe Republican seat in the fall general election.
