Trump-Backed Candidates 58-1 in Midterm Primaries

Trump-Backed Candidates 58-1 in Primaries


Candidates backed by former President Donald Trump are now 58-1 in Republican primaries, as three Trump-endorsed candidates secured the Republican nominations in their respective races in West Virginia and Nebraska Tuesday, while one candidate came up short.

Trump-backed Rep. Alexander Mooney brought home the Republican nomination for West Virginia’s Second Congressional District. Mooney, who currently serves the state’s First Congressional District, ran against Rep. David McKinley for the Republican nomination. McKinley, who has been in office since 2011, represents the state’s Second Congressional District at the moment, but redistricting forced the sitting congressmen to square off in the primary as the state moves from three seats to two, as Breitbart News previously pointed out.

Sixty-six percent of the new Second Congressional, which covers the northern portion of the state, includes the district that McKinley currently serves.

McKinley voted and helped to pass the Democrats’ infrastructure bill, while Mooney voted against it, as Breitbart News previously noted. McKinley proclaimed the legislation “is good for West Virginia,” adding that his vote to pass the bill “is not a vote for anyone but West Virginia.”

Tuesday’s results make Trump-endorsed candidates 58-1 in the midterm primaries thus far, as all 22 candidates who received the 45th president’s nod in Ohio and Indiana won their races on May 3, while all 33 Trump-backed candidates in Texas either won their primaries or advanced to runoffs. Of the May 3 races, the most notable victor was J.D. Vance in Ohio, who earned the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate with the help of a late Trump endorsement.
