He maybe preceived as the ‘leader’ of the Grand ole Party….
But votes seem to be saying?
His crying about his LOSS IS getting ‘tired’….
Republican are moving back to make their own choices….
Not just following the ex-President’s lead….
Georgia Republicans gave Trump Walker….
Pennsylvania is a almost a tie….
Mo Brooks gets a tight win….
It seeps away….
By flexing so often in GOP primaries, Donald Trump has exposed the limits of his political muscle.
Next door, in Alabama, GOP Senate candidate Mo Brooks survived Trump yanking his endorsement to qualify for a primary run-off.
And those high-profile setbacks came just a week after Trump favorite Rep. Madison Cawthorn lost a re-nomination battle for a western North Carolina House district, while Mehmet Oz, the TV doctor who bore Trump’s blessing, is still awaiting his fate in a photo-finish Pennsylvania Senate primary…
Rank-and-file Republican voters also see some diminishment in Trump’s powers.
“Now that he’s kind of out of it, he’s not in a position that he was in,” Chris Russell, 40, a GOP voter from Marietta, Georgia, said Tuesday afternoon. “I think he’s cooled off a lot.”
Russell, who backed Trump in 2020 and Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson in 2016, cast his ballot for Kemp in a primary against Trump’s recruit, former Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga.
“I don’t like how he tried to bully his way back at the end of the  election,” Russell said of the former president. “The reason I voted for Kemp is, overall, I’m satisfied with how he’s been running the state, and I like the fact that he stood up against Trump.”
Despite Tuesday’s rebuke, Trump will surely finish the primary season with a high “batting average” — the political shorthand for winning percentage in endorsements.

In most cases, he tapped an incumbent, meaning he took strong odds.
Indeed, whether Trump endorsed them or endorsed their opponents, incumbents tended to win their races. And in many cases, including those of a half-dozen House members in Texas who were unopposed in the primary, his picks faced little or no competition.
Trump, posting Wednesday on his Truth Social media site, pointed to his overall record in endorsing candidates — which now features seven defeats, including four statewide races in Georgia on Tuesday….
