Either Trump has a way of picking who he endorses, or voters vote for who he endorses. Either way, his record is amazing. Let’s see just how well his picks did.
Candidates backed by former President Donald J. Trump are now 172-10 in statewide and federal races in 2022 after a perfect night in Kansas, Michigan, and Missouri. His candidates are undefeated so far in Arizona – but results are still pending in the gubernatorial race – while he also has two candidates in Washington whose races are still awaiting results.
All five of the 45th president’s picks in Kansas officially secured their nominations Tuesday night, according to the Associated Press election results compiled by the New York Times. Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) handily beat out his primary challenger Joan Farr, while Attorney General Derek Schmidt blew out his opponent Arlyn Briggs in the contest for the gubernatorial nomination. Reps. Tracey Mann (R-KS), Jake LaTurner (R-KS), and Ron Estes (R-KS) officially clinched their nominations as well.
It was a similar story in Michigan, where all eight candidates with Trump’s backing advanced to the general election.
Trump-backed gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has taken an over 11,000 vote lead with 80 percent of the vote reported in her contest against Karrin Taylor Robson, who is backed by former Vice President Mike Pence.
Democrats want to believe that Donald Trump is a goner and will be in prison for what happened on January 6, before he can attain the presidency again. They thought that with the Russia witch hunt too, and we see how that worked out for them. Do you think Trump’s record on endorsements equals a win for him if he runs in 2024?
