(RepublicanInformer.com)- Despite his defeat in Georgia on Wednesday, former President Donald Trump boasted about what he called a “huge and successful evening of political endorsements.”
Trump said that he had a night filled with political endorsements that were both massive and fruitful. All victories in the states of Texas, Arkansas, and Alabama (33 & 0 for the entire primary list). An outstanding new candidate for the Senate, along with others in Georgia. Overall for the ‘Cycle,’ there were 100 victories, six defeats (some of which were due to situations that could not have been won), and two runoffs.
On TRUTH Social, President Trump wrote “Thank you, and CONGRATULATIONS to everybody!” in response to users’ well wishes.
Former Senator David Perdue and incumbent Representative Jody Hice, both of whom had the support of President Trump, were defeated in the Republican primary held in Georgia on Tuesday. The campaigns were for the offices of the Secretary of State and Senate. In the end, Perdue was defeated by the incumbent governor, Brian Kemp, by a margin of more than 50 points. In contrast, Hice was defeated by the incumbent secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, by a margin of roughly 20 points. In what will be a rerun of their race from 2018, Kemp will go up against the Democratic contender Stacey Abrams, while Raffensperger will go up against Bee Nguyen.
In addition, in the state of Alabama, Rep. Mo Brooks, for whom Trump withdrew his backing, will face off against Katie Britt, a former staffer for the Senate, in the runoff election on June 21.
The victor will go on to face Will Boyd, the Democratic nominee.
It was widely anticipated that Trump’s other endorsees, such as former Trump White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in the Arkansas GOP gubernatorial contest and football star Herschel Walker in the Georgia GOP gubernatorial primary, would emerge victorious regardless of Trump’s support for them.
Sanders will square off against the Democratic contender Chris Jones, while Walker will take on the Democratic senatorial incumbent Raphael Warnock.
