Looks like Trump wins again.

Republican Senator and GOP leader Mitch McConnell spent an overwhelming $4.1 million to attack Trump-endorsed Republican Army General Don Buldoc in hopes that he would lose to his favored candidate Chuck Morse.

Sadly for McConnell however Don Buldoc won in New Hampshire!

This proves again to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell that Trump has far more influence in the Republican Party than him.

According to Fox, After learning that he won the race, Buldoc told his supporters, “You sent the biggest signal to the establishment tonight. They are going to work for you.”

Buldoc now joins a trio of Trump-endorsed candidates who have won in the Republican Party including Karoline Leavitt in New Hampshire’s First Congressional District and Bob Burns in the Second Congressional District.

Trump celebrated Buldoc’s victory and said, “Nice! The “Trumpiest” people ALL won in New Hampshire last night. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!”

Establishment Republicans however referred to the victories of Trump endorsed candidates “disastrous” and a “s— show.”

Buldoc made light of Republicans who criticized him and thought he shouldn’t have won by saying “The reason they’re afraid of me is they can’t control me…. I scare them.”

Whether or not Republican RINOs like Mitch McConnell like that Trump-endorsed candidates are winning doesn’t matter. Trump’s influence in the GOP is here to stay.
