Well, if you want to know how Donald Trump impacts a primary race, look no further than a stunning event that just took place in North Carolina.

After Trump endorsed Brad Knott, Kelly Daughtry suspended her campaign.

The oddity of this is that Daughtry was an overwhelming favorite in the race to win the GOP nomination to this point.

Shocking Events

Going back to March, Daughtry held a four-point lead against Knott.

In April, that lead extended to 19 percent, easily making her the favorite for the nod in the primary race.

Trump and several former members of his White House staff then endorsed Knott, and Daughtry ran for the hills.

As the favorite, she stepped down, giving the nod to Knott to take on the Democrats for the 13th District of North Carolina.

Daughtry stated, “In light of President Trump’s endorsement of Brad Knott for the Congressional seat in District 13, it has become clear that a pathway to victory is no longer feasible.

“I believe in the democratic process and respect the endorsement of our President.

“The time has now come to suspend my campaign.

“Although I will no longer be a candidate, I will not stop using my voice for the things I believe in.

“I will focus on conservative voter registration operations and supporting the nominated conservative judicial candidates running in November.”

She then went on to endorse Knott, thanking her supporters, and asking everyone in the party to unite behind Knott and Trump in November.

For Trump, this means that this particular seat will now receive additional scrutiny because of how all this played out.

If Knott wins the general election, it will give Trump kingmaker status.

If, however, the GOP loses the seat, it will be used as yet another example of how Trump interfered in a primary race and cost the GOP the possible majority in the House.

This has gone from an afterthought election to a seat that everyone will now be paying attention to.
