Conway Takes Over Devin Nunes House Seat Until Election

When Devin Nunes accepted an offer to work for Donald Trump to run Truth Social, he had to vacate his House seat.

That seat has finally been filled.

Connie Conway, a former state Representative, has won the special election.

She will now fill that seat for six months until the next general election.

Staying Red

Conway was heavily favored to win the election.

Her opponent was Democrat Lourin Hubbard, who currently works for the water department.

Her time in office will be short, however, as the Democrats are shrinking conservative influence in the Central Valley.

This area will look significantly different for the 2022 election, meaning Conway is likely the last GOP representative in the Central Valley.

Conway had all the big names behind her in the special election, including Donald Trump and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

Conway knows her time in office will be short-lived, but she wanted to get Nunes’ seat filled.

She stated, “I didn’t always have a desire to run, to serve in Congress.

“It was hard for people to grasp: ‘Why are you only running for six months?’ If there was a place to be, Congressman Nunes would have stayed, and he would be there.”

This also gives a bit more insight into why Nunes was so quick to leave Congress and go to work for Trump.

He saw the writing on the wall and knew, either way, he would be out of Congress come 2023.
