Candidates backed by former President Donald J. Trump are now 172-10 in statewide and federal races in 2022 after a perfect night in Kansas, Michigan, and Missouri. His candidates are undefeated so far in Arizona – but results are still pending in the gubernatorial race – while he also has two candidates in Washington whose races are still awaiting results.
All five of the 45th president’s picks in Kansas officially secured their nominations Tuesday night, according to the Associated Press election results compiled by the New York Times. Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) handily beat out his primary challenger Joan Farr, while Attorney General Derek Schmidt blew out his opponent Arlyn Briggs in the contest for the gubernatorial nomination. Reps. Tracey Mann (R-KS), Jake LaTurner (R-KS), and Ron Estes (R-KS) officially clinched their nominations as well. Source: Breitbart
