Primary elections were held in five states last night, with pro-Trump candidates winning in many races, and GOP Congressmen who voted to impeach Trump losing. The Daily Mail reports:
Donald Trump has been having a field day celebrating his litany of successful endorsements in Tuesday night’s primary races, boasting to followers on his Truth Social app from the early hours of Wednesday and throughout the morning.
Voters in Michigan, Missouri, Kansas, Washington and Arizona went to the polls for several key primary races that will define the next three months ahead of the November midterm elections. On the GOP side, it was a referendum on whether voters want a Trump-led future or a return to more establishment principles.
Trump bragged he ‘ran the entire board’ with his endorsements.
In Michigan, one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach the ex-president over the US Capitol riot lost to a former Trump administration official named John Gibbs.
A Trump-backed gubernatorial candidate also bested a crowded primary field to face incumbent Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in the fall.
‘Fantastic night in Michigan! Tudor Dixon will be a great Governor. John Gibbs WON with a big surge in the end,’ Trump wrote just after Rep. Peter Meijer’s loss was called.
‘Not a good time for impeachers – 7 down, 3 to go!’
Trump-backed Arizona GOP Senate candidate Blake Masters, a venture capitalist who has promoted the white nationalist ‘Great Replacement’ theory in the past, was declared the winner of his race overnight.
Masters had a healthy lead in pre-election polls despite being outspent by his closest competitor, businessman Jim Lamon.
But some match-ups are still close to call as of Wednesday morning. Kari Lake, a former news anchor who secured Trump’s endorsement by pushing his election fraud claims, is still locked in a tight race with businesswoman Karrin Taylor Robson.
Lake is leading, though the two are less than three points apart with 80 percent of ballots counted, according to the New York Times.
Action Line: Whether or not Donald Trump runs again in 2024, the influence of his presidency will be long lasting within the Republican Party and America. People instinctively recognize that something in this country is broken, and they want to Make America Great Again, at all levels; town, county, state, and federal.
