Trump Backed Candidate Loses in Nebraska GOP Primary

White House [Public Domain]

You can’t win ’em all…but Trump sure came close.

Trump’s name may not be on any ballots this year but that doesn’t mean that he isn’t fighting his hardest to win. The former president-turned Republican Party kingmaker notched a disappointing defeat in Nebraska’s Tuesday gubernatorial primary. New reports indicate that Trump-endorsed candidate Charles Herbster came up short, making him the first 2022 Trump-backed candidate to lose his primary showdown.

Fox News reports:

The Associated Press has projected that multimillionaire hog farmer and University of Nebraska Regent Jim Pillen, has won GOP nomination. Pillen enjoyed the backing of term-limited Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts, whom he hopes to succeed in November’s general election.

According to the latest vote count, Herbster, a multimillionaire agricultural executive and state Sen. Brett Lindstrom, who enjoyed the support of moderate Republicans and cross-over Democrats, were battling for second place.

Earlier Tuesday evening, Trump scored a victory when the AP projected Rep. Alex Mooney the winner over Rep. David McKinley in the GOP primary in West Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District.

West Virginia lost a congressional seat during the once-in-a-decade congressional reapportionment, and Mooney and McKinley were drawn into the state’s newly refigured 2nd District. Trump had backed Mooney, while McKinley enjoyed the support of two-term GOP Gov. Jim Justice and of longtime Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, who crossed party lines to star in a McKinley ad.

The winner of the GOP primary will be considered the clear favorite in red Nebraska in November’s general election against state Sen. Carol Blood who is highly likely to win the Democrat’s nomination.

Isn’t it funny when so far Trump has endorsed and won 99.9% so far and this site bring up the one loss like he lost them all. That’s funny!

Glad I read your post. Was gonna say the exact same thing. Media has been completely silent on all the wins so far. The only one they slightly mentioned was the win in Ohio.

I did NOT vote for Pillen

After getting 10 political fliers in two days, 6 one day and 4 the next day, from Pillen made me decide that anyone that desperate to spend that much money just on a primary election is NOT someone I want running my state. 🤨

Ya, and the lose is tied to a university. We all know that thanks to dems bending over and grabbing their ankles for the china bank accts we can’t tax. That dems turned a blinds eye to china military dumping their spy kids in our colleges and universities. jerry nadlers getting bill clinton to release the capital bombers to allow those terrorist to hide out in our colleges and universities to grow the antifa marxist, fasist movement. It’s not surprising. It kills me we have so many dumbed down think they are so smart dimwitted kids running around. And worse. Parents instead of setting them straight. Throw their hands up stating they don’t know what happened to their kids. I have a clue. My now 13, soon to be 14yr old great niece was my mission for her first 4yrs of life. I was her care giver and happy to say she’s been a straight A kid. When she was getting excited about starting school. I saw a show in the HBO listing that I thought she would like. Show her what I was talking about when it came to going to school. WE put the show on and were shocked. She a 3 1/2 yr old said OH, NO. NOT FOR HER. It was disgusting. The show was a black kindergarten teacher teaching her white kids that their parents and grandparents enslaved their fellow black and brown students. And they needed to show the black and brown students respect, make up for their parents harm. The black an brown kids knew it was all bull crap and milked it royal. I will never forget this meek sweet as ever little white girl trying to wrap her head around the lie her teacher was indoctrinating into her. She cried and told us she can’t figure out what is happening cause she didn’t see her parents doing that. Try to figure out how her parents can be slavers. The poor white kids literally spend the school yr giving it up to the black and brown kids who spent that year milking everything they could from the white kids. So now that you know who totally disgusted this black kindergarten teacher was. You have to ask yourself. How many other teachers are destroying white kids minds with this manipulative behavior. and who many of those black marxist burning and looting, killing their communities and citizens actually feel the bull they march for. And how many are like with the kindergarten teacher. milking the bogus privilege stuff cause they know they can. Cause we all know the blacks have always been the privileged. Proof being the so called black community that came from slavery can actually trace their line back. But you can’t trace the white slaves back cause they were literally murdered, worked, beaten and starved to death forcing the bill in 1789 that stated black slaves needed to be cared for. They got free housing, clothing and food. All white the white slaves still had to support themselves while working for free. A indentured servant was a white slave. Need proof look it up, Read white cargo.
