Trump Goes Five for Five, Socialists Lose BIG in Ohio and Michigan

On Tuesday, all five of the candidates President Donald Trump endorsed won their primaries and all (but one) of the socialists that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez endorsed lost.

After the Tuesday primary elections finished, Trump jumped to Twitter to celebrate the fact that all the candidates he endorsed won their primaries.

He also tweeted congrats to those candidates:

It is a pretty stunning victory for a president that every single talking head in the media claims is thoroughly hated.

Indeed, the one president that the media said was universally loved never had a record like this. Candidates supported by Barack Obama routinely lost their elections.

On the other hand, as Kyle Olson pointed out, the socialists supported by “the future of the Democrat Party” (that would be that well known box of rocks Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) all lost their bids for office.

Every single candidate (but one) that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez supported lost.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s record on Tuesday night for her chosen primary candidates was as bare as a Venezuelan supermarket shelf.

The socialist pulled off a stunning victory last month in New York, and is now attempting to parlay that win into helping other leftists win Democratic primaries.

Cortez held a whirl-wind tour of the U.S., stumping for Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, Cori Bush in Missouri’s 1st District, and is backing Congressional candidate Kaniela Ing in Hawaii.

El-Sayed lost his bid for the Democrat nomination for governor to 51.8 percent to 30.5 percent, according to numbers published by the New York Times.

Saad came in fourth in the five-way race, capturing only 18 percent of the vote.

Cori Bush lost her primary to William Lacy Clay, 56.7 percent to 36.9 percent, the Times results show.

Hawaii’s primary election will be August 11. Stay tuned to see if Ing fairs any better.

Only one candidate supported by Ocasio-Cortez won her primary. Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-born Muslim woman, ran in the contest for Michigan’s 13th District. She will likely win the upcoming general election in the heavy Democrat district and will then become the first Muslim woman to be elected to Congress.

Still, Ocasio-Cortez was clearly no help at all to the candidates she supported. This is good news, indeed.
