Pro-Trump NFL Superstar Burgess Owens Trounces Dem Rep in Utah to Win Congressional Seat

Pro-Trump former NFL legend Burgess Owens has now won Utah’s 4th congressional seat, unseating Democrat incumbent Ben McAdams.

The win makes Owens the 12th Republican so far this year to unseat a Democrat incumbent.

As The Daily Wire reports:

Rep. Ben McAdams, the only Democrat in Utah’s congressional delegation, conceded his race to GOP challenger and former NFL player Burgess Owens on Monday.

Owens is the twelfth GOP challenger to unseat his incumbent Democratic opponent during the 2020 election as the Republican Party continues to cut into the Democrats House majority. Owens announced that McAdams had conceded the race in a tweet on Monday evening.

“I received a call from [McAdams,] he expressed appreciation for the opportunity to serve #UT04 and his commitment to a smooth transition. My sincere thanks to him for both. Thank you my fellow Utahns, I am committed to have an open ear to serve you. Thank you for the opportunity,” Owens said.

Owens took a slim lead over McAdams as outstanding ballots continued to be counted over two weeks after election day in Utah. Owens maintained a roughly 2,000-vote lead over the incumbent McAdams when he decided to concede the election.

On these posts I have heard for 12 years how stupid this and that Democrat is. I have always stated, “They are not stupid”. Quite the contrary. They had this election pegged “Where they needed votes”. Milwaukee, Detroit, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Las Vegas were the keys. Your observation substantiates the case even more. Who knows how many of thousands of individuals were all in cahoots to get this done. What a sham.

Congratulations! But The House is still in the majority and if we don’t win the two senate runoffs in Georgia our country will be forever doomed. God help us.
