On Tuesday, primaries were held across the country for some key races. The Senate was the main focus yesterday and Trump lent a hand. He endorsed two candidates who ultimately secured victory and will now head into November with momentum.

According to the New York Post:

President Donald Trump backed two successful US Senate nominees in Pennsylvania and Nebraska, which were among four states holding primaries Tuesday.

The primaries began to settle swing state Pennsylvania’s chaotic congressional landscape after a court fight ended with redrawn districts just three months ago. Amid the redistricting, Republican Rick Saccone recorded his second loss in two months in two US House districts.

Among the more unusual results of Tuesday’s primaries was the loss by Pennsylvania’s Democratic lieutenant governor, Mike Stack, who was ousted by Mayor John Fetterman.

Oregon and Idaho also held primary elections.

The mid-terms this year are more important than ever, and Trump is making sure we have the strongest candidates to keep the majority in Congress.
