In what Politico dubbed the only race in which an incumbent’s position in favor of immigration reform mattered, Rep. Renee Ellmers won her primary election Tuesday.  Poiltico described the first-term Republican’s position this way: “Ellmers said if there’s one thing she could accomplish in Washington, it would be resolving how to treat an estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally and around whom many businesses have designed their destinies. Ellmers advocates a formula the GOP House leadership advanced in January, allow them to stay in the country if they paid a fine without qualifying for citizenship.”  North Carolina Republican voters apparently agreed, defeating her opponent who made opposition to illegal immigration the linchpin of his campaign.
