Trump celebrates sweeping Republican victories in the Texas primary elections

by Timothy Frudd

President Donald Trump congratulated the 33 candidates he endorsed in Tuesday’s Republican primary in the state of Texas in a set of tweets released Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

The 45th president described the Republican primary as a “big night in Texas” after the candidates he endorsed performed exceedingly well in the Texas primary elections.

Trump stated, “All 33 candidates that were Trump endorsed have either won their primary election or are substantially leading in the case of a runoff.”

Despite facing seven Republican challengers in his bid for another term, Gov. Greg Abbott, who the 45th president endorsed, easily won his primary race with about 70 percent of the vote. Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick also easily won his primary race.

The 45th president celebrated Abbott’s and Patrick’s victories in his statement, saying, “Governor Abbott and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick have won in a landslide. Thank you, and congratulations to all!”

The candidates that Trump endorsed significantly outperformed their challengers, showing the rest of the Republican Party that Trump’s endorsements will be critical for success in the 2022 midterms. Business Insider described Tuesday’s results, saying, “Texas candidates who had earned the 45th president’s golden ticket fared extremely well.”

In a separate statement released Wednesday, Trump said, “All 33 Trump-Endorsed candidates won last night in Texas, or are substantially leading. Big night!” He then asked, “How will the Fake News make it look bad?”

The endorsements of the 45th president have proven to be the key to Republican victories. However, the mainstream media continues to question Trump’s role in the Republican Party. In the upcoming months before the midterm elections, the media will almost certainly attempt to delegitimize his incredible record of endorsements.

While Trump-endorsed candidates achieved significant victories Tuesday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton failed to meet the 50 percent requirement to avoid a runoff election. According to Newsweek, Paxton will face Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush in a runoff election in May.

As Republicans work to take back the House and the Senate in the midterm elections, GOP candidates will continue to lobby for the 45th president’s powerful endorsements. Republican candidates will need to take advantage of Trump’s support and his MAGA base to stop the liberal agenda currently ravaging the nation.
