Two more Trump-backed candidates win primary House races

Two more candidates endorsed by former President Donald Trump won their Republican primary races for the House of Representatives on Tuesday, according to a report by The Daily Caller.

Max Miller and Madison Gesiotto Gilbert won the GOP primaries in the state of Ohio, which created a stellar night for the former president and his candidates.

“Max Miller won the Republican primary in Ohio’s Seventh District, and Madison Gesiotto Gilbert will be the GOP nominee in the state’s Thirteenth District,” the Daily Caller reported.

“Miller will likely have an easy path to Congress, as his district leans right by 14 points, according to FiveThirtyEight. Gesiotto Gilbert’s district is a toss-up, leaning Republican by only two points.”

Miller was a former White House aid and declared his intent to run for the 16th district’s nomination, winning over incumbent Republican Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, who formerly voted to impeach Trump.

Redistricting changed the district lines, allowing for a better chance for Miller in the 13th district, which overlapped Republican Rep. Bob Gibbs, who announced his retirement in April of this year.

Miller was previously a special adviser to Trump, and in the Office of Presidential Personnel, he also sat on the Holocaust Memorial Council Board of Trustees and ended up with 70% support in a four-candidate primary race.

Gesiotto Gilbert formerly wrote for The Washington Times as a columnist and as the co-chair of the Women for Trump advisory board during the 2020 presidential election.

“Trump has endorsed nine out of the ten Republican members of Ohio’s House delegation who are running for re-election,” the Daily Caller reported. “All Ohio Republican incumbents won on Tuesday. Trump’s endorsed Senate candidate, JD Vance, also won his primary.”

On the Democrat side of the spectrum, Rep. Shontel Brown won over state Sen. and left-wing challenger Nina Turner with about 70% support from Democratic voters, and this was after Brown defeated Turner in August of last year during a special election to replace Marcia Fudge, who joined the Biden administration as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
