Trump-Backed Candidates Win GOP Primaries in New Hampshire

Corky Messner wins Senate GOP Primary and Matt Powers wins Republican Congressional Primary


Donald Trump is the leader of the Republican Party.

And boy is he leading it!

His endorsed candidates are winning left and right, putting Republicans on the path to victory in 2020.

Two New Hampshire Republican candidates, one for the Senate and one for Congress, won their primaries yesterday after receiving endorsements from Trump.

Here’s the latest details from Fox News:

An endorsement from President Trump – it’s the most coveted prize nowadays in Republican primary politics.

And on Tuesday, the potency of a Trump endorsement in a contested GOP race was on display once again as two candidates backed by the president won their primary battles in New Hampshire, which was holding federal and state primary contests.

Republican Senate candidate Bryant ‘Corky’ Messner edged out retired Army Brig. Gen. Don Bolduc in the GOP Senate primary, thanks in part to support from the president. And Matt Mowers, another Trump-backed candidate, crushed his rivals in the Republican House primary in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District.

Both candidates received shoutouts from the president when Trump held a re-election campaign event in New Hampshire a week and a half ago. Messner quickly used the clip of the president praising him in his closing TV commercial in the race. The spot also showcased a clip of Messer speaking earlier at the rally pledging to “help President Trump bring this economy back.”

Mowers, a veteran political operative and strategist who worked on Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign before serving in the State Department during the first two years of the Trump presidency, told supporters in his victory speech that “I want to thank a good friend of all of ours, the President of the United States for his early support in this campaign.”
