Former President Donald Trump posted on his social media platform, Truth Social, to celebrate his endorsement victories in primaries in Kansas and Missouri Tuesday night.
Trump wrote, “Won all of our Endorsed Races in Kansas and Missouri. Great going ‘Eric.’ Big Night. Thank you!”
Trump’s mention of “Eric” was a reference to the former President endorsing both Eric Schmitt and former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens in the race for Senate in Missouri.
Schmitt won the GOP nomination Tuesday night.
Trump endorsed GOP Kansas gubernatorial candidate Derek Schmidt also won the Republican nomination. Schmidt will face incumbent Democrat Gov. Laura Kelly in November.
Tudor Dixon, who won the Republican nomination for governor in Michigan Tuesday night was also endorsed by Trump and will challenge incumbent Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in November.
Trump-backed nominees have won Republican primaries for US Senate in Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Heading into Tuesday’s primaries, Trump-backed candidates had a 95 percent success rate, according to Fox News.
However, in Washington state, Republican Reps. Jaime Herrera Beutler and Dan Newhouse were leading their Trump-endorsed challengers despite blowback due to their votes to impeach the former president.
