Trump SWEEPS – 22 to 0!
(RepublicanDaily.org) – Former President Donald Trump retains a huge amount of sway within conservative ranks, despite not having held elected office for well over a year at this point. Until now, analysts weren’t entirely sure of the extent of this influence. However, following a landslide of victories for primary candidates Trump endorsed, there is much less doubt about it.
On Tuesday, May 3, 22 candidates who received the former president’s official backing claimed victory in primary races in Ohio and Indiana, according to the Gateway Pundit. No Trump-endorsed candidates lost in their primary.
One high-profile victor was JD Vance, a Republican candidate for the US Senate in Ohio. Vance, who once opposed Trump, is well-known as the author of the autobiographical novel “Hillbilly Elegy” which later became a Netflix film. According to Kari Lake, a Republican candidate in Arizona’s upcoming gubernatorial race who also received an official endorsement from former President Trump, victories like Vance’s signal the rise of the “New Right.”
What you’re witnessing right now in Ohio is the rise of the New Right in America.
J.D. Vance’s victory represents the end of the Old Guard, McCain-Romney wing of the Republican Party.
The Trump Endorsement is stronger than ever. In 91 days, it’s our turn, Arizona. https://t.co/dbB8s9XWlN

With the next presidential election a little over two years away, it’s difficult to overstate the importance of these results. Do you think Trump’s popularity will translate into a win for him in the next White House race, if he chooses to run?
