Contest in a usually reliably Republican seat had been seen as a proxy battle for next year’s race for the White House Republicans have won a fiercely contested special election in North Carolina, narrowly escaping what could have been a serious setback for Donald Trump and his 2020 re-election campaign. The conservative state senator Dan Bishop beat out the Democrat Dan McCready, a former Marine who earned a master’s degree in business from Harvard, in a race that remained neck-and-neck for most of the night. Bishop had 50.8% of the vote to McCready’s 48.8% as of late Tuesday evening, with 99% of precincts reporting.

No one expected Trump to pivot to diplomatic breakthroughs with someone as bellicose as Bolton by his side John Bolton can at least boast that he lasted longer than his two predecessors, but few observers of Trumpworld expected him to cling on until 2020. Donald Trump hired Bolton to break things, like the Obama administration legacy and the orthodox foreign policy establishment in general. Now, with the 2020 election coming, a downturn looming and a second presidential term in doubt, Trump is trying to build a foreign policy legacy of his own – or at least a reasonable impression of one.
