The primary elections in Ohio and Indiana on Tuesday night sent a resounding message to the GOP establishment that the America First movement is not only here to stay – but it is the only option.

After experiencing a “promises made, promises kept” Trump presidency that few Americans thought was possible before 2016, Americans are settling for nothing less from their local candidates running for public office in 2022.

On Tuesday night, all 22 of President Trump’s endorsements for the May 3 election across Indiana, a solidly red state, and Ohio, a critical battleground state, handily won their races and will face off against their Democrat challengers in November.

The most well-known of those endorsements, investor and author J.D. Vance was projected the winner of Ohio’s U.S. Senate primary election with a roughly nine-point lead with 97 percent of precincts reporting in what was initially expected to be a tight race, according to Fox News.

Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to praise the turnout for Vance. “The America First movement is alive and well people. Congrats JD, well done,” said the 45th president’s son.

Among the dozens of America First candidates who were victorious this week include Max Miller, candidate for Ohio-7, Madison Gesiotto Gilbert, candidate for Ohio-13, and Rep. Greg Pence, running for reelection in Indiana-6.

Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., expressed her enthusiasm for Madison Gesiotto Gilbert’s primary victory which is one step closer to flipping the Ohio seat which is currently held by Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio.

“Madison is one of the strong #GOPWomen leading the charge to Take Back the House, & I look forward to working with her to FLIP this seat & #FIREPelosi once and for all,” wrote Stefanik.

Celebrating his endorsees’ success at the polls, the 45th president Truthed, “22 & 0 in Ohio and Indiana! Congratulations to all of our great Republican WINNERS!”
