Former President Trump’s influence still weighs heavy, even after more than a year out of the White House.
“Trump’s sway over the electorate was demonstrated in the Texas primaries on Tuesday night when all of his endorsed candidates either won or are in first place for a run-off,” reports Breitbart News.
Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick issued a statement to the former president, announcing that Trump went 12-0 in his Texas primary endorsements.
“I am proud to tell you that every candidate I asked you to endorse won or is solidly in first place going into a runoff. You were 12-0 with your Texas endorsements last night from my list of recommendations,” said Patrick.
“Your key endorsement of strong conservative candidates, who believe in the MAGA policies, who worked hard every day for months was a winning combination over their opponents,” he added.
“It appears to be an all-time record for any candidate ever in a Texas contested primary. I used your endorsement in all of our ads, mailers and was pinned to the top of my Facebook page for months,” said Dan Patrick.
“Other examples included Ryan Guillen, a former border region Democrat who became Republican, who won with 54 percent of the vote in a three-way race,” reports Breitbart News.
“He is the bold Democrat that changes parties in the border region,” said Dan Patrick. “That is something you should be very proud of. That was a historic win that will open the door for more conservative Hispanic Democrats to switch parties.”
