The political power of President Trump was on full display in Texas, and you know Dems were watching what happened, and shaking in their commie boots.
Every one of Trump’s endorsed candidates won or is sitting in “1st place” in the run-off.
It’s unbelievable how powerful Trump’s endorsements are.
Now, that’s not to say all of his endorsements are perfect – he’s only human, after all.
His Tennessee endorsement was off.
He picked the establishment toadie, not the America First candidate, and that really riled up MAGA.
The Hill reported on the story last month saying, President Trump is under fire — including from some of his most ardent supporters — for his preliminary endorsement of a former State Department spokesperson over a steadfast ally in a Tennessee congressional primary.
In an unexpected move last week, Trump threw his support behind Morgan Ortagus, who served as a spokesperson for former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and hasn’t yet announced a bid to represent Tennessee’s 5th Congressional District. In doing so, Trump snubbed Robby Starbuck, a conservative filmmaker who has been running for the seat since June.
The former president’s announcement sparked intense backlash across Republican circles, with even the most aggressive Trump boosters questioning — and in some cases outright condemning — his decision.
“Nope. Trump has this completely wrong,” Candace Owens, a conservative commentator and staunch Trump rally, tweeted. “@robbystarbuck is the correct pick for Tennessee’s 5th district and Tennesseans have his back.”
“I endorsed @robbystarbuck months ago and I stand by my endorsement,” Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) tweeted. “He is the best candidate in the country right now. The MAGA movement needs him in Congress!”
In another blow to Trump’s endorsement, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), one of Trump’s most high-profile supporters in Congress, announced that she would back Starbuck’s House bid, telling the Washington Examiner that he “has been a champion for ‘America First’ for a long time.”
I think he just got some bad advice on that one, and let’s hope that particular pick does not win.
But all eyes were on Texas last night, and that’s where President Trump was shinning, and his political clout just got 100x bigger and stronger.
Breitbart reported that
Former President Trump’s sway over the electorate was demonstrated in the Texas primaries on Tuesday night when all of his endorsed candidates either won or are in first place for a run-off.
In a statement to the former president on Wednesday, Texas Lieutenant Gov. Dan Patrick (R) announced that Trump went 12-0 in his Texas primary endorsements.
“I am proud to tell you that every candidate I asked you to endorse won or is solidly in first place going into a runoff. You were 12-0 with your Texas endorsements last night from my list of recommendations,” said Patrick.
“Your key endorsement of strong conservative candidates, who believe in the MAGA policies, who worked hard every day for months was a winning combination over their opponents,” he added.
Patrick noted that he received “more votes than any person on the ballot,” ending with 1.4 million votes and 300,000 more votes than what he received in the 2018 primaries.
“It appears to be an all-time record for any candidate ever in a Texas contested primary. I used your endorsement in all of our ads, mailers and was pinned to the top of my Facebook page for months,” said Dan Patrick.
Other examples included Ryan Guillen, a former border region Democrat who became Republican, who won with 54 percent of the vote in a three-way race.
“He is the bold Democrat that changes parties in the border region,” an enthusiastic Dan Patrick said. “That is something you should be very proud of. That was a historic win that will open the door for more conservative Hispanic Democrats to switch parties.”
In the four-way attorney general’s race, the Trump-endorsed Ken Paxton came out in first place and will face Texas land commissioner George P. Bush in a run-off come May.
“Paxton led the four-candidate field by a comfortable margin, despite feisty and well-funded challenges from Bush, former state Supreme Court Justice Eva Guzman and Rep. Louie Gohmert,” noted CNN.
More victories of Trump-endorsed candidates, per Dan Patrick:
Kevin Sparks, the oilman in West Texas, won in a four-way race with nearly 54% of the vote.
Mayes Middleton won in a four-way race with 56% of the vote.
Governor Abbot won with 66% in an eight-way race.
I won with 76% of the vote in a six-way race and, as noted, had highest vote total of any candidate.
Glen Hegar won easily in a two-way race.
Angela Paxton won 65% in a two-way race.
Congrats to President Trump and all of his candidates… and good luck to Dems, who have had literally no luck in canceling Trump.
They’ve actually made him and our movement stronger… just look at this:
Texas primary votes (GOP/Dem):
2010: 1.484 million/ 679k
2014: 1.337 million/ 554k
2018: 1.540 million/ 1.017 million
2022: 1.862 million/ 1.006 milion (95% reporting)
