House Freedom Caucus Chairman’s Tight Primary Goes to Post-Race Recount, Too Close to Call

Conservative hardliner Bob Good is trying to avoid a primary challenger who has the support of both former President Donald Trump and Kevin McCarthy.

Their primary race was too close to call Tuesday night and will go to a recount.

With 92% of votes cast at 11:00 PM ET, challenger John McGuire was 300 votes ahead in the 5th Congressional District.

He claimed victory over Good at the end of the evening, telling his supporters “it is an honor to be your Republican candidate.”

The controversial race exposed the divide within the MAGA movement.

The right-wing Freedom Caucus chairman lost the president’s support when he initially endorsed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over him. He also eliminated some colleagues in the House of Representatives when he voted to remove Kevin McCarthy from the presidency.
