The media and RINOs are rejoicing because some of Trump’s endorsed candidates lost, but his record during the primaries and the general election sits at 174-9. That could become 175-8. Rep Boebert was declared the loser in her race, but she is now only 62 votes behind her Democratic opponent. While it’s true that some of Trump’s endorsed candidates such as Dr Oz lost, his endorsement of JD Vance came at a time when he was polling in fifth place. He easily won his primary and the general election.

An additional Senator who voted to impeach – who was not up for re-election this year – resigned.
President Trump’s early endorsements of U.S. House candidates strategically enabled key Republican recruits to win their nominations without runoffs or, in some cases, any opposition.
President Trump endorsed Derrick Van Orden (Wisconsin-03) in August 2021. One year later, on August 9, 2022, Van Orden won the Republican nomination without opposition.
President Trump endorsed Monica De La Cruz (Texas-15) and Wesley Hunt (Texas-
38) in February 2022. Three weeks later, De La Cruz and Hunt won the Republican nomination without a runoff, despite running in crowded primary fields of 9 and 10 candidates, respectively.
8 of the 10 Republican U.S. Representatives who voted to impeach President Trump either retired or were defeated for re-election.
One Republican who remains survived through the diffusion of votes against him, spread across 6 other candidates. 34% of Republican votes were cast for the Representative who voted to impeach – 66% of Republican votes were cast against him.
President Trump endorsed Kari Lake on September 28, 2021. Throughout the Republican primary, Kari was outspent by her Republican opponents by a 5:1 margin. Despite the spending disadvantage, Lake won the Republican nomination by over 4%.
President Trump’s endorsements of Governor Kevin Stitt (Oklahoma) and Derek Schmidt (Kansas) resulted in overwhelming primary victories.
I don’t care who you are, that is a great record. The Arizona votes have been updated with Kari Lake just .2% behind Hobbs with 33% of the vote yet to count, mostly from Republican districts. Hamadeh has taken the lead for Attorney General.
