Candidates endorsed by President Donald Trump reigned supreme in Tuesday’s Republican primary elections, reminding the nation that he is the leader of the GOP.
The 45th president celebrated the ongoing victories in a series of posts on Truth Social. “John Gibbs is looking good in Michigan against the Impeacher Peter Meijer,” said Trump.
Eventually, Gibbs would go on to win Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District in the early morning hours of Wednesday. Although incumbent Peter Meijer, R-Mich., had the name recognition and a larger budget, it was not enough to win back the favor of Michiganders after he voted to impeach President Trump.
Continuing, President Trump praised Tudor Dixon for her gubernatorial primary victory in the Great Lakes State. “Fantastic night in Michigan,” exclaimed Trump. “Tudor Dixon will be a great Governor,” he added. The former conservative news commentator boasted a massive triumph after winning her election by more than 100,000 votes. Dixon will face off against the pro-lockdown incumbent, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, D-Mich., in November.
Trump-backed Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt also emerged victorious Tuesday night after being declared the projected winner for the state’s Senate race.
Out west, Trump-supported candidates took home the gold in Arizona as well. Venture capitalist, Blake Masters, captured the GOP Senate primary nomination after receiving the Trump seal of approval in June. “Congratulations to Blake Masters on a great Arizona win,” proclaimed Trump. Masters will challenge Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz., in November in an effort to flip the Senate back to a Republican majority.
Moreover, one of the most watched elections in Arizona is the battle for the Republican gubernatorial primary. Although the contest was too close to call overnight, Trump-endorsed Kari Lake maintained a slight lead by Wednesday afternoon, according to the New York Times.
Interestingly, Lake’s most significant rival is Karrin Taylor Robson. Robson is a real estate developer that garnered the support of former Vice President Mike Pence.
Additionally, “David Farsnworth trounced RINO Rusty Bowers,” declared Trump. Bowers, the former Republican Arizona House Speaker, made a run for the state Senate after he was term-limited in the state House. However, it was Farnsworth’s strong demand for election integrity that the people of Arizona embraced.
Rep. Paul Gosar, the Republican incumbent in Arizona’s CD-9, won the Republican nomination with the support of President Trump.
“Endorsements don’t get anymore powerful or conclusive than the endorsements of last night,” said Trump. Proud of his record, Trump added that his candidates “ran the entire board.”
