President Donald Trump celebrated a flawless endorsement record in Tuesday night’s primary elections, setting the stage for key races in the November midterm elections.
All Trump-endorsed candidates won their primary races Tuesday, emphasizing the weight and importance of the 45th president’s endorsement.
In a post on Truth Social, Trump wrote, “Looks like a fantastic evening of ALL WINS – Great Candidates!!!”
Trump touted his successful night of endorsements and pointed to his seal of approval as a determining factor in Tuesday’s elections. “26 and 0 tonight, turning numerous tight races into big and easy wins,” he said.
This year, the 45th president’s midterm endorsement record has been almost spotless in the GOP primary elections. As previously reported, Trump has a perfect endorsement record in 26 states.
In addition to celebrating Tuesday’s string of victories, Trump stated, “Overall for last 4 years, 98.4% on Endorsements!”
Trump-endorsed Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., defeated Mark Lombardo, a former FedEx executive, in Tuesday’s primary. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio also won his primary election in the Sunshine State, along with several other Trump-endorsed candidates.
New York Reps. Elise Stefanik, Nicole Malliotakis, and Claudia Tenney received Trump’s endorsement and enjoyed victories in the Empire State.
Trump-endorsed Rep. Markwayne Mullin also won the Oklahoma GOP Senate primary race Tuesday. Mullin will face the Democrat Party’s nominee in the November midterm election to determine who will fulfill the remaining term of Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., who announced he would be retiring later this year.
The 45th president’s massive night of successful endorsements continues to position him as the leader of the MAGA movement and the Republican Party. As Trump continues to dominate GOP primary elections, he remains the overwhelming favorite Republican candidate if he chooses to announce a 2024 run for the White House.
