7 states head to the polls on Tuesday as another round of fierce primaries kicks off in California, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, and South Dakota.
As Joe Biden and the Democrats continue to plague America with skyrocketing gas prices, a raging border crisis, and rampant inflation, Americans will be voting for who they believe can put an end to the chaos once and for all, and if they’re smart, they’ll vote RED across the board.
Donald Trump has done an excellent job pushing his endorsed candidates one step closer to the finish line for November’s general election. Dr. Mehmet Oz was his most recent win as Dave McCormick conceded to Oz claiming he didn’t believe there was any way he could beat the Pennsylvanian candidate in a recount. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Sarah Huckabee, J.D. Vance, Alex Mooney, and Ken Paxton have all been high-profile wins for the former President so far this year.
Trump hopes to continue his outstanding winning record Tuesday with another round of America First all-stars that he’s backing for the win.
Here are the Trump-backed candidates for Tuesday’s June 7th Primary Elections:
Former President Donald Trump is unleashing an avalanche of support for major Iowa Republican candidates, endorsing Gov. Kim Reynolds, making official his already announced backing of U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, and voicing his approval for two congressional candidates.
Reynolds, who began a five-day campaign tour of the state Thursday, acknowledged Trump’s endorsement of her re-election campaign Sunday. “It’s an honor to have his support,” she said.
Trump endorsed Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Saturday night, but the endorsement did little to increase support for the House minority leader among the MAGA crowd.
Trump sent out a statement on Truth Social, his social media platform, late Saturday night endorsing McCarthy and calling him “an outstanding representative for the people of California.”
“In Congress, Kevin is a tireless advocate for the people of Bakersfield and the Central Valley,” Trump said. “He is working incredibly hard to Stop Inflation, Deliver Water Solutions, and Hold Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi Accountable for their catastrophic failures and dereliction of duty … Kevin McCarthy has my Complete and Total Endorsement.”
The MAGA community is beyond shocked and furious that Donald Trump continues to support McCarthy, especially after McCarthy was caught on tape lying multiple times including his denial that he said he would call Donald Trump to recommend that Trump resign.
Donald Trump has also officially endorsed Kevin Kiley for Congress.
Kiley, a Rocklin assemblyman, is vying with Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones, also a Republican, and Democrats Kermit Jones and David Peterson for the seat.
On Saturday, Trump released a statement saying, “No one has fought Gavin Newsom harder than Kevin. He doesn’t wait for the fight, like the do-nothing RINO’s who have watched California get absolutely destroyed by the radical maniacs in Sacramento.”
Very little action in New Jersey as most moderate Republicans want nothing to do with a Trump endorsement. Are we surprised though? New Jersey, much like NY is Democrat-controlled, and in order to win an election, you need to pander to the left. At this point, you may as well just have a one-party rule in New Jersey because it’s nearly impossible for a true conservative candidate to win an election.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of true America First Conservatives running in New Jersey, but those who did not receive Trump’s blessing.
There’s an “America First Veteran” and the “America First Agenda.” Two candidates are running as “America First Republicans,” not to be confused with “America First Conservative Republicans.” Other candidates are running under the slogans “America First: True Conservative Outsider” and “New Jersey First.”
But if any of the self-proclaimed Trump Republicans have a chance of riding the anticipated midterm red wave into the House of Representatives, they must first pull off upsets in Tuesday’s primary against leading candidates who represent New Jersey’s traditionally moderate brand of conservatives/RINOs. The most prominent are Chris Smith, the 42-year incumbent in the 4th Congressional District, and Tom Kean Jr., the descendant of New Jersey Republican royalty running in the 7th District.
The 4th District Republican primary pits Chris Smith against Mike Crispi and Steve Gray. Long considered conservative, Smith, 69, is now rated as among the most moderate Republicans in the House and is running on his record. His challengers are Crispi, a conservative podcaster being advised by Trump ally Roger Stone who had hoped for a Trump endorsement that hasn’t come, and Gray, a former agent with the FBI, also courting the far-right vote.
For the first time since 1993, the state will have two House seats, after one was added to account for Montana’s growing population.
Ryan Zinke, Trump’s former Interior Department secretary, technically is in an open race for the new seat. The former Navy SEAL is widely considered the de facto incumbent since he twice won elections for the state’s other House seat before stepping down in 2017 to join the Trump administration.
Having raised $2.9 million, Zinke holds a substantial monetary edge over former state legislator Al Olszewski, who’s raised just $710,000, and businesswoman and pastor Mary Todd, who’s raised $448,000 (with $323,000 in self-funding). Zinke also has Trump’s endorsement.
Voter turnout is expected to be low, but that does not mean there are no important races here. In the battle for the party’s gubernatorial nomination, Gov. Kristi Noem faces Steve Haugaard, the Sioux Falls attorney, and former state House Speaker. Trump-backed Noem, who is considered a potential White House prospect, is favored to win the GOP nomination.
