In what appeared to many to be a politically motivated move, the FBI raided former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort residence in Florida on Monday, ostensibly as part of an investigation into classified documents that he took with him when he left the White House last year.
If Democrats hoped the FBI raid and threat of legal trouble would dampen the spirits of Trump’s legion of Republican supporters, they were sorely mistaken, as it appears that all of the candidates Trump endorsed ahead of Tuesday’s primary elections won their respective races, Breitbart reported.
The outlet noted that Trump’s endorsement record now stands at 192 wins and only 11 losses.
Great night for Trump-endorsed candidates
In Connecticut, in the Republican primary race to face off against incumbent Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) in November, former President Trump issued his endorsement last week for the candidacy of Leora Levy, who proceeded to defeat her nearest GOP competitor by around 10 percentage points and 10,000 votes.
Of Levy, Trump said that “she will work hard to Grow the Economy, Secure the Border, Fight for Energy Independence, Support our Military and our Vets, champion Election Integrity, Protect the Second Amendment, and Fight Violent and Vicious Crime, which is at the highest level in Connecticut history.”
Over in Minnesota, Breitbart noted that Trump issued three endorsements for three congressional incumbents who have been loyal and supportive of him, and all three of those candidates are now the GOP nominees for their respective districts in November’s general election.
That includes Reps. Tom Emmer in the Sixth District, Michelle Fischbach in the Seventh District, and Pete Stauber in the Eighth District.
Then there is Wisconsin, where Trump issued seven endorsements, including one for governor, one for the Senate, four for the House, and one for the state Assembly, and all seven of those candidates cruised to victory on Tuesday.
That includes gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels, Sen. Ron Johnson, Reps. Bryan Steil (First District), Scott Fitgerald (Fifth District), and Tom Tiffany (Seventh District), as well as Derrick Van Orden for the Third District and Assemblywoman Janel Brandtjen for the state legislature.
Undefeated in 31 states and among all Senate endorsements
Breitbart also noted that in terms of Trump’s endorsements for Senate candidates, he currently stands undefeated at 17-0.
Furthermore, the outlet noted that Trump’s endorsement record remains unblemished with any losses in 31 of the nation’s 50 states.
There is little doubt that Democrats and their allies within the federal government are hoping beyond hope to try and disqualify Trump from holding office again with any sort of criminal conviction, and at the very least to tarnish his reputation and drive a wedge between him and his supporters, but they may eventually realize that the more trouble they try to brew up against him, the stronger his support grows, as evidenced by his incredible endorsement success thus far.
