Former President Donald Trump is touting the primary victories of candidates he endorsed in Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, and Georgia.
In a post on his social media platform Truth Social on Wednesday, Trump wrote, “A very big and successful evening of political Endorsements. All wins in Texas (33 & 0 for full primary list), Arkansas, and Alabama. A great new Senatorial Candidate, and others, in Georgia.”
“Overall for the ‘Cycle,’ 100 Wins, 6 Losses (some of which were not possible to win), and 2 runoffs. Thank you, and CONGRATULATIONS to all!” he added.
Check out some of the results below:
In Arkansas, former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders handily won her primary election for governor with 83% of the vote.
Meanwhile Reps. Rick Crawford and Bruce Westerman won their primaries and State Sen. John Boozman won his.
Reps. Jerry Carl, Barry More, Mike Rogers, Robert Aderholt, and Gary Palmer all won their primaries.
However, Rep. Mo Brooks, who Trump endorsed and then un-endorsed, made it to a run-off election in his bid for the Senate.
Trump withdrew his endorsement after Brooks suggested it was time to move on from the 2020 election.
Brooks will now face off against Katie Britt on June 21.
