A lot happened…
As much as Democrats and Trump-hating Republicans want to put Donald Trump on the back-burner Trump refuses to lose.
Some states recently had their primaries and Trump once again proved to the American people that his endorsements still mean something to conservative voters.
According to The Hill, In Missouri former Governor Eric Greitens lost the GOP Senate primary something a lot of Republicans were secretly hoping for.
Eric Greitens was considered a heavy weight and led as a front-runner for much of the year. Republicans found him to be too controversial due to a number of scandals that plagued him. Greitens ended up finishing third with state Attorney General Eric Schmitt winning overall.
Greitens was hoping for a Trump endorsement however Trump played a funny joke and simply said that he endorsed “ERIC”. Funny enough, both candidates first names are “Eric” and both men claimed that Trump was endorsing them. Eric Schmitt ended up taking the victory and many top Republicans were pleased with the outcome.
Furthermore in Arizona, Trump-endorsed and wildly popular conservative Kari Lake still holds a slight lead ahead of Republican Karrin Taylor Robson who are both fighting for the state’s GOP gubernatorial primary. While Trump has endorsed Lake, other top Republicans such as Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and former Vice President Mike Pence have given their endorsements to Robson.
Additionally, Trump-endorsed Blake Masters is still the clear front-runner for Arizona’s GOP Senate primary and will likely win. Tudor Dixon, who Trump just endorsed, has also secured the position as governor of Michigan as well.
Trump is still the elephant in the room when it comes to influence in GOP elections. Democrats and Trump-hating RINOs have a lot to be worried about heading into the future.
