Former NFL Superbowl star Burgess Owens claimed his victory Wednesday for the Republican ticket in Utah’s fourth district congressional race. Owens claimed over 43 percent of the Party’s votes, with 67 percent of the precincts reporting.

“I am so grateful for the tireless support of so many volunteers,” Owens told SaraACarter.com.

“Im so grateful for the tireless support of so many volunteers,” he told SaraACarter.com Wednesday. “I am excited to continue sharing our message of unity with the district. We’ve seen our message of small government resonating with people across the political spectrum and I’m excited to keep knocking doors, making phone calls and meeting every voter I can!”

In June, Owens told “The Sara Carter Show” podcast that the Democratic party is “frantic” over the increasing number of black Americans that are leaving the party to back President Donald Trump and Republicans. Owens, a former Oakland Raiders Super Bowl star, said that leftists are attempting to erase America’s history and fundamentally change the ideological direction of the country.

He said during the podcast interview that the majority of rioting and protesting after George Floyd’s death is “is not organic.”

“Black people right now are not going in and burning down their own black businesses it’s Antifa,” he said. “And that’s why I love the fact that we now have got a president who’s going to call out for it. We have domestic terrorists. People are trying to take down our country we have because of this Marxist ideology. These governors and mayors could care less and represent could care less about the pain it brings as long as they get their power back. So yeah this is a power play and the great thing about this is this we can now talk across the board among about Americans about we the people do we want to work to vote for those who are against us doing these bad times or those who give us hope.”

Owens now faces a battle against Democrat incumbent Rep. Ben McAdams, who won uncontested.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
