Trump endorsed Senate candidates win in MO and AZ | Eastern North Carolina Now | Trump endorsed governor candidates win in MI, lead in AZ

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

President Trump's endorsed candidates for US Senate won their primaries against establishment candidates in Missouri and Arizona.  Missouri is a GOP held seat with an incumbent retiring, while Arizona is a key GOP pickup opportunity.

In Arizona, businessman Blake Masters received President Trump's endorsement, and he defeated establishment candidate Jim Lamon, who owns a solar energy business by over ten points, with conservative state Attorney General Mike Brnovich running third.

In Missouri, President Trump endorsed "Eric" meaning he could go with either conservative state Attorney General Eric Schmidt or conservative former Governor Eric Greitens.  He made it crystal clear that he did not want establishment Congresswoman Vickie Hartzler.  Schmidt was also the endorsed candidate of the Senate Conservatives Fund, and he led Hartzler by over 20 points, with Greitens close behind Hartzler in third place.

There were no other significant Senate primaries yesterday.

In key governor's races, Trump endorsed Tudor Dixon won the GOP nomination by a wide margin in Michigan while Trump endorsed Kari Lake leads in Arizona over establishment liberal lobbyist Karrin Robson, who was endorsed by Mike Pence and by outgoing governor Doug Ducey.  That race has not yet been called.

Other gubenatorial primaries were not seriously contested.  In Kansas, conservative and Trump endorsed State Attorney General Derek Schmidt won the primary in a landslide and  is likely to defeat the Democrat incumbent in November.  To fill his position, conservative Kris Korbach, also endorsed by Trump, defeated an establishment rival.

Trump now stands 170 - 10 in the success of his endorsements, with a perfect record of wins in Michigan, Missouri, and Kansas. Trumps picks are all ahead in Arizona as well, but some of those have not yet been called.

This morning they say 85% of the vote is in, and Kari Lake's margin of victory has inched up a little. But this slow ball count is a big concern. So is the fact that the Democrat nominee for governor is the one responsible for the count.

The establishment Republican candidate, Karrin Robson is also a gold digger who married a billionaire old enough to be her grandfather.

Need to keep an eye on AZ, still lots of dirty tricks going on from sharpies that bleed through the paper, not enough ballots, republican ballots being given to democrats upon request, poll workers instructing people who to vote for, absentee ballots not being delivered, ballots missing candidates names, etc. Since nothing was done about these same things in 2020 we can expect it to continue until people are charged, found guilty and put in jail for extended periods to send a strong message to others.

Kari Lake will be an outstanding patriot in defending our border. She has pledged to issue a declaration of invasion under the US Constitution to facilitate more state action to stop the illegal aliens and have the state finish President Trump's border wall.

What has become a huge concern is that the reporting of election results has stopped for many hours with perhaps as much as 20% of the vote outstanding. The last updates were in the early hours of the morning, with nothing more all day. This is extremely suspicious. The state official in charge of the election process just happens to be the Democrat nominee for governor. They just about have to have been counting votes all day, so why are results not being released? Kari Lake leads by over 11,000 votes, but this could be overcome by cheating.

The liberal Republican opponent is awful on illegal immigration. She has supported in-state tuition for illegal aliens, giving citizenship to illegal aliens, and says illegal immigration is NOT a top issue for Arizona. She also supports letting men into womens restrooms and showers.
