Candidates in Colorado, Illinois, Oklahoma, and Utah, secured sweeping victories on Tuesday, adding to Trump’s record of success for this primary season leading up to November’s midterms.
At 144 wins and only 10 losses, it’s clear that Trump and his America First movement are dominating the Republican Party.
RINO candidates have been largely shut out by MAGA Republicans who receive an endorsement from Former President Donald Trump, once again discrediting anyone who claims his influence is waning.
In Oklahoma, for example, Gov. Kevin Stitt defeated his primary opponents by securing 70% of the vote, according to AP. He’s now set to go up against Democrat nominee Joe Hofmeister in November.
Rep. Kevin Hern also emerged victorious in the race for Oklahoma’s First Congressional District, as did Frank Lucas in the Third Congressional District. Tom Cole also defeated primary opponents in the race for Oklahoma’s Fourth Congressional District and will face off against the Democrat nominee in November.
Rep. Lauren Boebert, arguably one of the most ‘controversial’ lawmakers amongst the MAGA crowd, secured her nomination in Colorado’s Third Congressional District. She defeated challenger Don Coram, securing over 64% of the vote, according to the Associated Press.
Similarly, in Illinois, four candidates who received Trump’s stamp of approval went on to defeat their primary challengers on Tuesday.
State Sen. Darren Bailey securing the GOP nomination for Governor in the Prarie State. Rep. Mike Bost took home his renomination in the Twelfth Congressional District, while Rep. Mary Miller beat out fellow Congressman Rodney Davis in the race for the 15th Congressional District. In the contest for the 16th Congressional District, Rep. Darin LaHood, who currently represents the 18th Congressional District, enjoyed an emphatic victory over his opponents.
Republican voters in Utah made no qualms about their support of Donald Trump.
The incumbent Sen. Mike Lee will face off against anti-Trump independent Evan McMullin in November’s general election after winning his reelection bid. In the Second Congressional District, Rep. Chris Stewart defeated RINO opponents while Rep. Burgess Owens achieved similar results in Utah’s Fourth Congressional District.
Other states where Trump candidates received massive success are South Carolina, Nevada, and North Dakota. Voters in California, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, and South Dakota came out in droves for Trump-backed candidates as well — all of Trump’s 17 GOP picks went on to win their primary elections.
