It wasn’t even close….
The Trump endorsement for the loser wasn’t worth anything….
Republican voters disregard him….
Ellzey declared victory two hours after the polls closed, shortly before the Associated Press projected him as the winner. He told supporters that voters had wanted “a positive outlook, a Reagan Republican outlook for the future of our country” despite a blizzard of negative ads….
Both Ellzey and Wright said there were legitimate questions about the 2020 election, and both suggested they would vote consistently with Republican leadership. But Trump’s endorsement had an effect. Jana Lynne Sanchez, the Democrat who placed third in the primary, said that “most” of her friends, if they were voting at all, were casting anti-Wright protest votes….
Republican lawmakers across the country ARE falling over themselves to get Donald Trump’s blessing…
In this case?
That blessing helped the winner….
