Trump announces next round of endorsements for upcoming primaries

Love him or hate him, there’s just no denying that former President Donald Trump’s endorsement is nothing less than the equivalent of a golden ticket for a Republican candidate, whether it be the town dog-catcher or a U.S. senator.

According to The Hill, after going 22-0 as far as victories for his last round of endorsements in Indiana and Ohio, Trump has revealed who he’s endorsing for the next round of elections in West Virginia and Nebraska.

Overall, since making endorsements after leaving office, Trump stands at an insanely impressive 55-0 record, cementing his unofficial title within the Republican Party as the party’s “Kingmaker.”

Charles Herbster, a gubernatorial candidate, is who Trump is backing for the Nebraska governor’s mansion. He’s the former chairman of Trump’s Agriculture and Rural Advisory Committee, and given his past loyalty, he’s beaten out eight other Republicans for Trump’s nod.

Unfortunately, Herbster faces an obstacle in the form of sexual misconduct allegations from eight women, The Hill noted in a separate report. A bipartisan group of state senators have called for Herbster to drop out of the race, but so far, that hasn’t happened.

Rep. Adrian Smith (R-NE) is another Trump-backed candidate running to keep his seat against a strong Republican challenger. But given Smith’s record of opposing the Electoral College certification after the 2020 election, he’s clearly secured Trump’s backing as payment for his loyalty.

In West Virginia, Trump has announced endorsements of Reps. Carol Mooney of the state’s 3rd Congressional District, and Alex Mooney of the 2nd Congressional District.

“The former president said he was supporting Mooney because he opposed the bipartisan infrastructure law and voted against the creation of the Jan. 6 committee,” The Hill noted.

While there are plenty of primary elections ahead, if Trump continues his winning record, it will only further prove that, without a shred of doubt, he’s still the influential leader of today’s Republican Party, and probably will be for some time.
