Tuesday headlines: The dramatic debate gets even more dramatic on Monday

It was a given Monday evening that a debate in Congress between three Republicans fighting to win the party nomination would be dramatic. And yes, there were jeers, hoots and howls. But few expected that one of the contestants, Lynz Piper-Loomis, support throw immediately to challenger Katie Arrington and leave the stage with flying colors.

Now the race finds incumbent rookie U.S. Representative Nancy Mace with just one primary opponent, Arrington, who lost the race in 2018 but has since been endorsed by former President Donald Trump. The primary will take place on June 14. The winner will face Dr. Annie Andrews in November.
