Cori Bush Drops 22 Points Behind Challenger Wesley Bell

Looks like we have a race y’all….

New polls show Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) is down 22 points behind primary challenger Wesley Bell.

Results gathered by Remington Research Group, a firm linked to the GOP, on behalf of the Missouri Scout were released on Feb. 12. Voters were asked, in a hypothetical primary, who they would vote for between three candidates: Wesley Bell, state Sen. Maria Chapelle-Nadal, and Bush. Without labeling who the incumbent was, half of the respondents selected Bell, and 4% selected Nadal.

Bush came in with 28% of the vote. Eighteen percent were unsure.

“Understand this unique place that we are with the world literally on fire,” Bell said. 

“I think that we need to make certain that we are providing that effective leadership, not only in our district but in D.C. and on the world stage.”

The Bush campaign released a statement following Bell’s announcement. She says it is “disheartening that Prosecuting Attorney Bell has decided to abandon his U.S. Senate campaign to become Missouri’s first Black Senator after less than five months and has instead decided to target Missouri’s first Black Congresswoman.”
