The state of Arizona held its primary elections Tuesday night.
President Trump made several endorsements in the “Grand Canyon State.”
For U.S. Senate, Trump endorsed author and venture capitalist Blake Masters.
The 35-year-old won the primary race with 39% of the vote.
Fox News reported:
The Associated Press has called Arizona’s Republican Senate primary for venture capitalist Blake Masters, who will face off in November against Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly in a key battleground state race that may determine if the GOP wins back the Senate majority.
Masters was the front-runner in the most recent public opinion surveys heading into Tuesday’s primary election. The field of contenders also included solar power businessman Jim Lamon, who pumped millions of his own money behind his bid.
“Masters was leading in every poll and won his primary by 10 points,” The Gateway Pundit noted.
“Blake Masters has not held back throughout the campaign.”
Read part of Masters’ bio from his campaign website:
Blake grew up in Tucson, Arizona. In 2012, he married his high school sweetheart, Catherine. Happily married for 10 years now, Blake and Catherine are raising and homeschooling their three beautiful boys, Miles, Graham, and Rex.
After graduating from Stanford and Stanford Law School, Blake co-founded a successful software startup called Judicata. In 2014, he co-authored the #1 New York Times bestseller Zero to One. Having sold more than 4 million copies, it’s the world’s most popular book on startups and venture capital.
In 2015 Blake became President of the Thiel Foundation, a nonprofit that promotes science and innovation. The Foundation’s Thiel Fellowship Program has paid 225 young people to drop out of college so that they can create new companies. Businesses started by Thiel Fellows are together now worth more than $45 billion! From 2018 to 2022, Blake was Chief Operating Officer at Thiel Capital, an investment firm that specializes in the technology sector, where he helped grow assets under management by billions of dollars.
Blake also joined President Trump’s transition team in 2016. Blake saw firsthand how deep The Swamp really is and how establishment forces immediately tried to undermine President Trump’s MAGA agenda. Now Blake is putting his successful business career on hold to represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate because the same old establishment politicians and the same old establishment candidates have failed us. He brings a wealth of experience to the table on how to defeat not just the progressive Democrats, but also the weak and compromised RINO Republicans.
America is in decline and the world is a dangerous place. Blake uniquely understands the modern threats that we face.
