Trump received 12-0 endorsements from the Senate primary candidates
After his endorsement record improved to 12-0 in Senate primary victories on Tuesday, President Trump’s influence as the “kingmaker” was once again on the show. Since he left the White House, Trump has been working to rebuild Congress with Republicans who support his America First agenda. For instance, Katie Britt won the Republican Senate nomination in Alabama by defeating Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., in a primary runoff. After the 45th president withdrew his support for the six-term congressman, Britt won Trump’s backing. Trump claims that he removed his endorsement of Brooks because Brooks became “woke.” Brooks forced voters to look past the 2020 election in March, which angered his supporters.
J.D. Vance’s victory in Ohio’s Senate primary in May was a big testament to Trump’s popularity
Additionally, J.D. Vance’s victory in Ohio’s Senate primary in May was a big testament to Trump’s popularity. In a difficult race to proceed to the November elections, the venture capitalist overcame six rivals, including former Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel. Despite becoming famous on his thanks to his book Hillbilly Elegy, Vance lagged in the polls before receiving Trump’s support. Vance thanked Trump for the support and promised to follow in his footsteps as a “great advocate for hard-working Americans.”
Herschel Walker, a well-known football star, was elected to represent Georgia in the Senate and will now face a Democratic opponent in November. The native Georgian rushed to the finish line as the race was declared within an hour of the voting period ending. Trump gave Walker, a devoted buddy, a ringing endorsement in September. Trump promised, “Herschel will never let you down.” Walker easily defeated establishment Republican and Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black, R-Ga., with nearly 70% of the vote, proving the statement to be accurate. Although President Trump hasn’t appeared on a ballot in nearly two years, his appeal to the Republican base is clearly strong.
What did Trump tweet about Katie’s success Just before midnight, Trump tweeted, “With the fantastic Alabama victory by Katie Britt tonight, I am proud to say that we (MAGA!) are 12 victories & 0 defeats in U.S. Senate Primary races this cycle.” We’ll perform admirably in the future general election as well. “Restore America to Greatness!” After the initial May primary, when Britt fell short of the required 50 percent vote total to defeat Brooks and win the nomination, Trump famously gave her his endorsement. Brooks had earlier this spring been stripped of Trump’s support.
Late Tuesday night, Trump added in a post, “Congratulations to Katie Britt on her tremendous & decisive Republican primary win for the U.S. Senate from the Great State of Alabama.” “As well as her amazing husband and family, who supported her through “thick and thin,” congratulations. She will become a remarkable senator and bring great honor to Alabama and our nation!”
Trump’s unblemished record so far has been highlighted by several sizable victories
Trump’s unblemished record so far has been highlighted by several sizable victories in crucial swing states, including Dr. Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania, J.D. Vance in Ohio, Adam Laxalt in Nevada, and Herschel Walker in Georgia. Trump continued to collect victories by supporting pro-America senators in a few more solidly Republican states: Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., Sen. Ted Budd, R-N.C., Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Ind., and Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D. are among the Republican senators.
The following incumbents, who have received Trump’s support, will still be up for election later this summer during the Senate GOP primary season: Sens. Mike Lee of Utah (June 28), Jerry Moran of Kansas (August 2), Ron Johnson of Wisconsin (August 9), Marco Rubio of Florida (August 23), and John Kennedy of Louisiana (August 23). (November 8). The two main competitors Trump has left on his list of endorsements are Alaska’s Kelly Tshibaka (August 16), who he wants to flip the seat of Sen. Lisa Murkowski, and R-Alaska, who votes in favor of impeachment, and Arizona’s Blake Masters (August 2 primary).
Only five vulnerable Republicans who supported impeachment in the House are still on Trump’s list of targets for these midterm elections
Only five vulnerable Republicans who supported impeachment in the House are still on Trump’s list of targets for these midterm elections. Trump is likely to remain a key component of their opposition: Reps. David Valadao, R-Calif., Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Wash., Rep. Dan Newhouse, R-Wash., Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo. Trump said that some candidates who failed to win the GOP gubernatorial nominations were “difficult sellers,” including Charles Herbster of Nebraska, former Georgia senator David Perdue, and Janice McGeachin of Idaho.
Trump lost the Republican House Primary because some fringe candidates failed to capitalize on his backing or a previous Save America rally stump speech: Jake Evans of Georgia and Vernon Jones of Georgia both lost in the Tuesday night runoff. Representative Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., South Carolina: Katie Arrington. With over 130 wins to only seven defeats in contests for governor, the House, or the Senate, Trump’s overall primary endorsement record is well over 90%.
About Katie Britt
Born on February 2, 1982, Katie Britt, the Republican Party’s candidate for Alabama’s United States Senate seat in 2022, is an American politician, lawyer, and entrepreneur. She previously held the positions of chief of staff for U.S. Senator Richard Shelby from 2016 to 2018, as well as president and CEO of the Business Council of Alabama from 2018 to 2021. In Enterprise, Alabama, Britt was born to Julian and Debra Boyd. She spent her early years working at her family’s modest company while rearing in Dale County, Alabama, outside of Fort Rucker.
Britt enrolled in the University of Alabama, where she declared a major in political science and won the presidency of the SGA. She earned a Bachelor of Science in 2004. Britt joined the team of U.S. Senator Richard Shelby in May 2004 as the deputy press secretary after graduating from the University of Alabama.

Former President Donald Trump’s top endorsements for the 2022 Republican primaries
The extent of his influence within the GOP in the run-up to the midterm elections will be tested by his selections for Republican candidates for the U.S. House, Senate, governorships, candidates for secretary of state and attorney general, and Republican Party leadership. Trump’s top picks for the 2022 presidential primary are listed below:
Florida senator Marco Rubio, U.S. Senate: On April 9, Trump supported Rubio, referring to him as a “tireless advocate” for Floridians. The senator and Trump were the main rivals in the 2016 election season when Trump called him “Little Marco.” Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter of the former president, put a stop to rumors that she could run for office in February by announcing that she would not be Rubio’s primary opponent.
Trump is urging Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson to run for a third term despite having stated in 2016 that he would retire after serving his second term and not officially declaring his intention to do so.
Rand Paul, Kentucky: On April 8, Trump endorsed Paul and praised him for his position “against the Swamp in Washington, the Radical Left Liberals, and especially the destructive RINOS.” He added that “The Commonwealth of Kentucky has a true champion in Rand Paul.” Paul previously said that he would be running for reelection in November 2022.
Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana received Trump’s support on March 4 and was referred to as a “great senator and person.” Kennedy was a select few who voted against President Joe Biden’s electors before his January inauguration. Kennedy also voted to exonerate Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial for “inciting insurrection” in connection with the January 6 Capitol siege, stating that the “merits of the Democrats’ case were not even close.”
South Carolina’s Tim Scott On March 2, Trump gave Scott his “full and complete endorsement,” stating that Scott “is both an exceptional Senator and a person who works relentlessly for the people of his wonderful state, and the USA.” If he is elected again in 2022, Scott has stated he does not intend to run for a third term. Scott’s reelection campaign hasn’t faced any significant primary opposition to date.
Alabama’s Mo Brooks: Brooks’ bid for the Senate has Trump’s support. Sen. Richard Shelby, who is not seeking reelection, is being replaced by the congressman. One of the former president’s staunchest allies on Capitol Hill, Brooks was among the first members of Congress to declare he would contest the Electoral College results, arguing that there had been election fraud in 2020.
