(FreedomBeacon.com)- After a tumultuous primary season that demonstrated former President Trump remains the de facto head of the Republican Party. An army of more than 200 MAGA candidates is marching into November’s midterm elections, ready to fight for Donald Trump’s agenda.
Trump has had a significant role in the 2022 election season thus far, backing candidates for Congress and state executive positions in contests that would not ordinarily receive the national attention he has given them.
Reports show Donald Trump also traveled the country to campaign with their voters in his famous ‘Make America Great Again’ rallies, including a Saturday appearance in Ohio for Senate candidate JD Vance.
It appears to have worked for him, as he has a success record of more than 90%.
Out of the primaries that have already taken place, Trump’s preferred candidates have won in Senate elections 100% of the time. He has assisted 18 candidates in advancing to the November election, with two pending contests.
However, some of the candidates he has endorsed, such as Herschel Walker in Georgia and Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania, appear to have establishment Republicans concerned about their electability in a general election in which independent voters play a significant role.
Election reports show that out of 158 total endorsements, the former president’s candidates have won all but five contests in ordinary primaries. That includes three races that are still in the works.
Trump recently suffered a high-profile defeat when former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, a vociferous admirer of his, lost a special election to finish the term of late Rep. Don Young. However, because of Alaska’s ranked-choice voting system, Palin received enough votes to run for a full term in the seat again in November.
Despite their reluctance to support all of Trump’s nominees, RINO Republicans such as McConnell have reluctantly backed them in critical elections such as Georgia’s Senate campaign between Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican ex-NFL star Herschel Walker.
According to reports, late last month, in reaction to McConnell’s remark regarding candidate “quality,” Trump slammed him as a broken down hack and accused him of not doing enough to aid Republicans in the midterm elections.
Trump asked why Republican Senators allowed a broken-down hack politician, Mitch McConnell, to openly criticize hard-working Republican candidates for the United States Senate.
McConnell’s actions highlight the problems of the Republican Party.
