FOX NEWS: DAVID BOSSIE: What Tuesday's election results tell Biden, Democrats and Republicans

Joe Biden’s hot inflation summer has begun and the results of this week’s primary and run-off elections around the country provided some important insight into how Americans are feeling about his failing presidency and what issues they care about the most. Unsurprisingly, there’s a complete disconnect between what career politicians in Washington are prioritizing and what hardworking families need them to focus on.

The American people are hurting from the high cost of gas and groceries -- and just about everything in between -- and are concerned for the future of the country.  Recent polling indicates that an astonishing 70 percent believe that America is on the wrong track under President Biden and his approval rating is clocking in under 40 percent on a regular basis.

According to Fox News survey data from June, Biden’s approval rating on his handling of the economy is just 29 percent and when it comes to the inflation crisis, his approval comes in at an abysmal 23 percent.

It’s clear that voters are most concerned about their economic well-being more than anything else and are turning out to the polls in historic numbers because inflation is keeping them up at night.

Be that as it may, Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s out of touch Democrat-controlled Congress -- with the help of RINO Congresswoman Liz Cheney -- has chosen to continue its never-ending war against President Trump instead of waging a war against inflation to help struggling Americans.  The fact is that what happened on January 6, 2021, will have little to do with the outcome of the 2022 midterm elections.  President Trump isn’t on the ballot -- but Joe Biden’s disastrous policies are.

In Alabama’s GOP run-off election for U.S. Senate, first time candidate Katie Britt prevailed. With her impressive victory, Britt is one step closer to becoming the first woman elected to the Senate from Alabama in history.  If elected -- which is highly likely in ruby red Alabama -- Britt must join the growing ranks of "next generation" conservative U.S. Senators such as Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Tom Cotton, Josh Hawley, and Marco Rubio who are determined to not just manage the decay in Washington but finally get America’s fiscal house in order.

Republicans turned out in droves in the Yellowhammer State to cast a vote for their next U.S. Senator in a summer run-off election.

This is just more evidence that Republicans are energized in 2022 and ready to make a statement at the polls in November against the failed leadership of Joe "The Great Inflator" Biden and his country-wrecking socialist agenda. Britt was spot on when she recently stated that voters "miss the America First agenda and they are ready for our country to get back on track."

Similar messages were sent in two swing districts within the renewed presidential battleground state of Virginia.

In Virginia’s 2nd congressional district, State Senator and Navy veteran Jen Kiggans won the Republican primary election to take on Pelosi puppet Rep. Elaine Luria in November. And in the 7th congressional district, rising America first superstar Yesli Vega won her competitive primary contest to take on far-left Democrat Rep. Abigail Spanberger.

So, what’s causing the Republican energy in support of conservative women all across the country? Like longtime Clinton strategist James Carville used to say, "It’s the economy, stupid."

It seems that the more things change, the more they stay the same.  On June 18, 1978 -- about four months before President Jimmy Carter’s midterm election -- The New York Times ran a column entitled "How Carter Can Stop Inflation."  The piece is eerily similar to the situation that Joe Biden finds himself in 44 years later.

For example, the piece states "In his early days in the White House, Jimmy Carter didn’t greatly pretend to treat it in any serious way at all."

Sound familiar? The column goes on to say that "With the help of Congress, Jimmy Carter has, in fact, needlessly exacerbated inflation."

Remember Biden’s irresponsible multi-trillion dollar pandemic spending spree? The column also asks, "So now the Carter Administration boldly proclaims that something must be done…The question is whether what is being tried, or is likely to be tried, will work…" One thing is for certain: Biden and the Democrats’ modern day Marie Antoinette "let them eat cake" routine is horribly tone-deaf.

When people can’t afford to fill up their gas tanks, advising them to buy an expensive electric car is insulting; and the president traveling to Saudi Arabia to beg for more oil isn’t going to solve the problem either.

Let’s face it, President Trump understood that energy security is national security and that’s why he made America energy independent.

These primary results should make Democrats extraordinarily nervous about the rapidly approaching midterm elections.

The Biden presidency has brought a crime crisis, border crisis, inflation crisis, gas price crisis and baby formula crisis to our country.

These are real problems that have Americans of all political stripes hurting. Not since the days of Jimmy Carter has America seen a malaise set in around the country like we’re seeing today.

Complete Democrat control of both houses of Congress and the White House got us into this mess and a return to the America first agenda will lead us out of it.

FOX NEWS: DAVID BOSSIE: 10 years after Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling, big corporations haven't hijacked our elections

The dangers of foreign influence over our government and foreign money infiltrating our elections have been a concern in the United States since the very beginning of our constitutional republic. In Federalist 68, Alexander Hamilton described corruption as one of the "deadly adversaries of republican government…chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils." 

This is one of the reasons why the U.S. Constitution allows only natural-born U.S. citizens to hold the office of the presidency. It’s also a reason why it’s illegal for candidates for federal office to accept campaign contributions from foreign nationals.

That being said, ever since President Barack Obama falsely attacked the U.S. Supreme Court for their decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission during his 2010 State of the Union address, left-wingers have been knowingly spouting tall tales about the coming flood of corporate money that will surely take over our election system.

The left never lets the facts get in the way of a good story. Even phonier still is their laughable assertion that the Citizens United decision -- a decision about free speech and government censorship -- somehow made foreign money legal in American politics. Citizens United literally had nothing to do with foreign money -- it was illegal then and it’s illegal now.

Obama’s big lie about Citizens United created a chain reaction of lies still echoing among liberal activists and their political allies in the mainstream media today. When President Obama stated that "the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that I believe will open the floodgates for special interests -- including foreign corporations -- to spend without limit in our elections," he started an irresponsible politicization of the high court that did damage to the separation of powers and our system of government that we’re now feeling tenfold.

When Associate Justice Samuel Alito mouthed "that’s untrue" from the well of the U.S. House of Representatives in response to Obama’s whopper, he was right.

According to a report from the watchdog Open Secrets, the scare tactics from President Obama and the left are unfounded. The report, which analyzed the impact of the Citizens United decision on the eve of its 10 year anniversary, found that "despite fears that elections would be dominated by corporations, the biggest political players are actually wealthy individual donors…Major corporations didn’t take full advantage of their new political powers. Corporations accounted for no more than one-tenth of independent groups’ fundraising in each election cycle since the ruling."

Despite these non-partisan findings, the left continues to perpetrate their core falsehood about Citizens United. Just last month former Clinton Labor Secretary and University of California, Berkeley Professor Robert Reich penned an op-ed stating, "The Supreme Court’s 2010 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission opened the gates. It allows foreigners to influence U.S. elections through their investments in politically active American corporations."

As previously outlined, this was false then and it’s false now. The left is ruthlessly calculating and nothing is done by mistake. So, what’s the rationale for their latest phony anti-Citizens United push?

Perhaps we’re witnessing the Democrats’ latest edition of "accuse the other side of what we’re doing" because they’re in need of a distraction from reality.

Recent headlines concerning major liberal donor Hansjorg Wyss such as "Pelosi-aligned dark money nonprofit received $3 million from group fueled by Swiss billionaire," "Liberal Dark Money Group Bankrolled by Foreign Billionaire Gave Millions to Stacey Abrams’s Voting Nonprofit," and "Swiss billionaire behind Dem ‘dark money’ donations despite not being US citizen" are raising eyebrows because they shine a bright light on the left’s stunning hypocrisy and dishonesty.

Examples of Democrat foreign campaign cash abuse are hardly something new. As the former Chief Investigator for the U.S. House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight during the Clinton administration, I had a front row seat tracking the wire transfers coming from foreign interests all over Asia -- including Communist China -- that ended up in the bank accounts of straw donors to the Democrat National Committee and 1996 Clinton re-election campaign.

The Department of Justice charged more than two dozen individuals with crimes in conjunction with this probe, including longtime Clinton friend James Riady.

In a press release at the time DOJ stated that "Riady will pay a record $8.6 million in criminal fines and plead guilty to a felony charge of conspiring to defraud the United States by unlawfully reimbursing campaign donors with foreign corporate funds."

These are far from the only examples of the Democrats’ foreign influence problems. Who can forget Fang Fang, the Chinese spy who infiltrated California Congressman Eric Swalwell’s operation?

Curious minds are still wondering why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi chose to allow her good friend Swalwell to keep receiving state secrets as a member of the House Intelligence Committee.

An even more egregious example of a politician compromised by his family’s foreign business dealings is no other than President Joe Biden himself. Hunter Biden’s extensive and lucrative business dealings in China, Russia, Ukraine, and elsewhere should be of great concern to every American. You can rest assured that every foreign intelligence agency in the world has a copy of the contents of his infamous laptop by now.

So, when it comes to big corporations taking over our elections, it still hasn’t happened. And when it comes to foreign influence, foreign money, and being compromised by foreign actors, today’s Democrats take a backseat to no one.

Hamilton knew what he was talking about.

WASHINGTON TIMES: DAVID BOSSIE: Jan. 6 hearings? Americans have much more serious concerns

If the Jan. 6 House select committee’s infamous track record is any indication, it would have already leaked new smoking-gun evidence in their possession heading into Thursday’s prime time hearings. But there was no leak because there is no smoking gun.

Instead, last Friday, the illegitimate Jan. 6 committee — choking from a lack of relevancy — was handed a lifeline as the politicized Biden Justice Department indicted former Trump adviser Peter Navarro for allegedly being in contempt of Congress. It was unbelievably fortunate and coincidental timing for a committee desperate to come up with something new.

That narrative continued this week with the committee’s controversial hiring of former ABC News President James Goldston to choreograph their hearings. In Washington, this is code for a committee that’s come up empty and needs to bring someone in to put lipstick on a pig. The last time Mr. Goldston was involved with Congress was in November 2019 when House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wrote him a letter demanding information about ABC News’ apparent cover-up of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal. People still want answers.

The Jan. 6 committee has a huge image problem and this decision makes it worse. The panel already lacks legitimacy because it doesn’t reflect the will of the people. Of its nine members — all handpicked by Speaker Nancy Pelosi — seven are Trump-hating Democrats and the other two are Trump-hating RINOs. This committee disregards House rules and precedent for political purposes, has no minority members or staff and is running an anti-Trump taxpayer-funded campaign operation in plain sight and everyone knows it. Now, bringing in an executive from the biased mainstream media is only making this perception problem worse. I guess if you need to run some fake hearings, who better than someone from the fake news to help orchestrate it?

The Pelosi-created select committee has wasted an untold amount of taxpayer dollars, conducted 1,000 depositions, reviewed hundreds of thousands of records and has come up with absolutely nothing useful for the American people. As evidence, the “big” reveal to start the week was more of the same. The committee let it be known that it has White House photographs from Jan. 6 that haven’t been seen publicly, more surveillance video from inside the Capitol Building of the riot and that it would be showing clips of their videotaped inquisitions — er, depositions — at the hearings. Well, at least now the world can see with their own eyes that there were no minority members or counsel present at these illegal proceedings, which is required.

When far-left Democrat committee member Rep. Jamie Raskin boasted recently that “the hearings will tell a story that will really blow the roof off the House,” he committed a deadly political sin. Mr. Raskin raised expectations to an unrealistic level and set his committee up for failure. Not even their allies in the liberal press corps can rescue a partisan sideshow that will be dominated by repackaged old news.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democrat Committee Chair Bennie Thompson, and RINO Committee Co-Chair Liz Cheney are guilty of obsessing over the events of Jan. 6, 2021, for political gain instead of focusing on fixing the actual disasters that President Joe Biden’s policies are creating on a daily basis.

Even the anti-Trump Associated Press couldn’t help but include this lapse in judgment in a recent report on the upcoming hearings.

“‘In quieter times, the hearings would have a stronger hold on public attention,’ said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania. … ‘But, as is, they will be competing for attention with topics with greater immediate relevance in our lives.’”

These topics of course are the inflation crisis, the gas price crisis, the baby formula crisis, the food price crisis, the violent crime crisis and the border crisis, to name just a few. The American people might tune into a prime-time hearing if the topic was “What Congress Can Do To Lower Gas Prices,” but another Trump witch hunt 18 months after his presidency is a complete waste of time and money that amounts to a dereliction of duty.

The mainstream media will surely fall in line in their hearing coverage this week because Ms. Cheney’s high-profile role in helping Democrats keep control of Congress by trying to destroy former President Donald Trump is an intriguing storyline for their shrinking audiences.

However, overcoming the committee’s credibility problem may be a bridge too far. Former Democrat House Committee Chair Henry Waxman, an expert on congressional oversight, may have said it best when he wrote, “successful congressional investigations have always been conducted on a fair and bipartisan basis. The best investigations have gone to great lengths to involve the minority and protect the rights of minority members.”

By contrast, the Jan. 6 committee doesn’t even have a minority side and because of this has continuously abused their subpoena power, deposition power and contempt power — with no end in sight.

When Republicans take over Congress next year, the House Committee on Administration should conduct a thorough internal investigation into the operations of the Jan. 6 committee to ensure something like this never happens again. Document preservation notices should be issued without delay.

WASHINGTON TIMES: DAVID BOSSIE: What the mainstream media sweep under the rug

The biased corporate liberal media’s handling of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s controversial $400 million spending spree during the 2020 election is eerily similar to their coverage of Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop.

The “Laptop” story, which is all about Hunter Biden’s shady foreign business dealings and connections to his father, was once dismissed by President Biden himself as a Russian disinformation plot during a nationally televised debate with then-President Donald Trump. Now almost two years after the fact, it’s been deemed legitimate and an appropriate topic for mainstream media reporting. We can only speculate whether this act of censorship — I call it election interference — would have changed the results.

In the same vein, we must never forget the 6-year-old Russia collusion hoax that the mainstream media used to try to destroy Mr. Trump throughout his entire term in office. In a federal courthouse recently, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager testified that Mrs. Clinton herself was personally involved in the phony smear campaign. So, left-wing journalists still have their Pulitzer Prizes for reporting on a Russian collusion story that never actually happened.

Now, the anti-Trump media’s coverage of the “Zuck bucks” story is limited to dismissing any criticism of the unprecedented injection of private Big Tech money to “help” run our election in 2020 as a conspiracy theory. Time and time again, if a subject doesn’t fit perfectly into the left’s false political narrative that the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic election was the most honest and secure election in history, it’s labeled “The Big Lie.”

Asking straightforward questions about an eye-popping $400 million expenditure by a billionaire in the context of a razor-thin election used to be great fodder for investigative journalism, but not anymore; not in the era of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Citizens United Productions’ recent documentary entitled “Rigged: The Zuckerberg Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump,” seeks to shine a light on Mr. Zuckerberg’s money and drills down on three core questions. Why was it spent, how was it spent and where it was spent. The film is documented with facts, evidence and government records. Following the flow of money through official IRS reports makes it clear that what transpired is far from some conspiracy theory.

It’s simply a matter of common sense to at least entertain the notion that when $400 million dollars is funneled to thousands of election offices around the country during crunch time in an election that may come down to tens of thousands of votes, it’s going to have some impact. Those in the mainstream media who are so quick to dismiss this idea are showing their partisan hands.

If the 2020 election was so perfect, why then have 24 states passed legislation that would ban or restrict Zuckerberg-style funding of elections in the future? And voters should be equally concerned that five Democrat governors have vetoed the legislation, including in the battleground states of Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

This should never be allowed to happen again, period. Governments should run our elections without the influence of private largesse from wealthy special interests.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and Wisconsin Special Counsel Michael Gableman deserve credit for their courage and determination in continuing to investigate when others want to move on in the name of political expediency. Other states should be conducting similar audits. While much has been learned relating to the issues surrounding Zuck bucks, some big questions remain. For example, once Mr. Zuckerberg’s money reached a county or city elections office, did any of it fund the ballot harvesting depicted in Dinesh D’Souza’s new documentary “2000 Mules”? Millions of concerned Americans are asking the same question and wondering if there’s any connection.

It’s no coincidence that Georgia got more Zuck bucks than any other state in the country and a prime example of why it was most certainly a partisan effort, despite the denials. Facts are stubborn things and the facts are that Georgia got $50 million of Mr. Zuckerberg’s money because Georgia was going to be a most important battleground state in the union in 2020.

The recently filed IRS 990 forms speak for themselves; the bulk of the money went exactly where President Biden needed it most. For example, 92% of the grants of $400,000 or more — totaling $272 million — went to jurisdictions that Mr. Biden won. This reality is probably why Mr. Zuckerberg recently announced there will be no encore performances by him in future elections. This is a win for election integrity.

The left-wing establishment across the board has worked overtime to run out the clock on the 2020 election, but that’s hardly a reason to forget it ever happened. And as in the case of Hunter Biden’s laptop, it must not be swept under the rug.

If Republicans take over Congress next year, which I fully expect, a thorough investigation of Mr. Zuckerberg’s $400 million investment in 2020 should be at the top of the oversight priority list, along with the Hillary Clinton Russia frame job and Biden corruption allegations. Furthermore, Rep. Claudia Tenney’s proposed legislation that would ban the private funding of elections should be called up for a vote in first 100 days of the new Congress.

FOX NEWS: DAVID BOSSIE: Elections in Georgia, elsewhere show Republican voters love 'America First' candidates

The closely watched primary election season continued Tuesday with contests in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, and Texas. And per usual, the biased and out of touch mainstream media is failing to focus on some very important news due to their unhealthy fixation on former President Donald Trump. 

In the critically important state of Georgia for example, Republican voter intensity is at a fever pitch. In the GOP primary election for governor, more than 1.2 million Georgians went to the polls, nearly doubling 2018’s primary turnout of 607,000. Peach State Republicans sent an unmistakable message this week: what’s happening in Joe Biden’s America — namely the inflation crisis, the crime crisis and the border crisis — is totally unacceptable and Georgia is poised to turn red again.

The sky-high turnout in Georgia can’t be ignored and deserves further examination. Remember the new election integrity bill that was passed in Georgia last year that President Joe Biden, the Democrat Party and the liberal media all labeled a racist law that would cause mass voter suppression and disenfranchisement? Well, that was all a disgusting lie foisted on the American people that can’t now be swept under the rug as if it never happened.

The spectacles of Major League Baseball moving the All-Star out of Atlanta and woke corporations bowing to cancel culture radicals rather than learning the facts won’t be soon forgotten.

Furthermore, Georgia’s voting rules helped pave the way for something that’s truly worth celebrating. Come this November, voters in Georgia — a state once part of the segregated south — will choose between two African-American candidates for a seat in the United States Senate.

Trump endorsed political outsider and former football star Herschel Walker, who received a commanding 68 percent of the primary vote will face off against incumbent U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock. This is the just latest example proving the left’s position — that the United States of America has made no progress on racial issues since the 1960s — is 100 percent wrong.

The truth is that America is great because we as a people are always striving to improve and the coming Warnock versus Walker general election in Georgia is proof positive of that.

So, as the anti-Trump media tries to create a feeding frenzy over incumbent Governor Brian Kemp’s victory over former U.S. Senator David Perdue in the gubernatorial primary election, it’s not the only take away from Georgia’s vote by a long shot.

In Arkansas, former Trump White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders rolled to victory with the help of former President Trump’s endorsement by garnering a whopping 83 percent of the vote. With her nomination, Sanders became the first female GOP gubernatorial nominee in state history and if elected in November — which is likely in the deep red Natural State — will become the first female governor of Arkansas ever.

Trump candidates won up and down the ticket in Arkansas, including Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin, who glided to a primary victory in his campaign for attorney general. If elected in November, Griffin will be a great addition to the existing team of GOP attorneys general across the country that are focused on beating back the Biden’s Administration’s unconstitutional overreach.

Perhaps the biggest surprise in Alabama’s Republican primary election for U.S. Senate was first time candidate Katie Britt’s strong performance in a crowded field. Britt, who came away with nearly 45 percent of the vote despite only polling in the mid-30s in the lead up to the primary, will become the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate from Alabama if she wins in November.

She now faces conservative U.S. Congressman Mo Brooks in a run-off election that takes place less than a month from now on June 21. Regardless of which candidate wins the run-off, the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama will be campaigning in the general election on stopping the crisis-creating radical agenda of President Joe Biden. Due to the ongoing inflation crisis, crime crisis, and border crisis that Biden’s policies have caused, the president’s approval rating clocked in at just 36 percent this week, according to a Reuters poll.

And because of all the news coming out of Georgia, Arkansas, and Alabama, what happened in the Texas run-off election might not be getting the attention it deserves. In the race for Texas Attorney General, Trump-fueled incumbent Ken Paxton defeated his GOP rival George P. Bush by a convincing 68 percent to 32 percent. Bush, the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and nephew of former President and Texas Governor George W. Bush, was seen as a potential threat to Paxton for obvious reasons, but it simply didn’t materialize.

The mainstream media’s habit of missing the big story due to Trump Derangement Syndrome is spilling into its primary election coverage. At the end of the day, this week’s election results will do little to affect President Trump’s strong stature with the GOP faithful. In fact, the reality is that the GOP under the leadership of Donald Trump is becoming more and more diverse as each primary passes because the America first agenda provides hope, growth, and opportunity for all.

David N. Bossie and Citizens United Political Victory Fund Endorse Conservative Yesli Vega for U.S. House

Along with Citizens United Political Victory Fund, I’m pleased to endorse Yesli Vega for the U.S. House from Virginia's 7th congressional district. After witnessing the damage that Biden & Pelosi’s radical socialist agenda has done to our country over the past year and a half, we need strong conservative outsiders like Yesli Vega in Congress, not more career politicians.

Yesli Vega’s life story is the embodiment of the American Dream & she will prioritize defending the U.S. Constitution and our God-given liberty. As a Deputy Sheriff, Yesli will stand tall for law and order and side by side with the heroic men & women of law enforcement. Yesli will also fight to secure our southern border and get tough on the fentanyl crisis once and for all.

Biden and Pelosi’s disastrous policies have created a border crisis, an inflation crisis & a crime crisis. Thankfully, Yesli Vega will serve as a key player in a new conservative majority in Congress that will serve as a much needed check and balance on the Biden Administration.

FOX NEWS: DAVID BOSSIE: Pennsylvania proves Republicans still want 'America First'

Despite being victorious in an amazing 58 of the 59 primary elections in which he endorsed a candidate going into Tuesday night’s contests in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Idaho, and Oregon, the biased mainstream media and political establishment were poised to launch another assault on President Donald Trump’s strength in the Republican Party if his latest slate of candidates had a subpar showing.

And once again, it didn’t happen by a long shot.

As each week of primaries come and go, Trump haters desperately want their preferred narrative to take hold, but it never does. The former president’s support among GOP primary voters is proving to be as resilient and loyal as ever, much to the chagrin of those yearning to write his political obituary. But facts are stubborn things and today the polls show that President Trump can’t be seriously challenged in the Republican presidential primary in 2024 if he chooses to run again.

The trends that continued last night across the country are crystal clear. Voters know that President Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda is the right one for our country, and they want MAGA, anti-establishment political outsiders to represent them in elected office.

In North Carolina’s primary election for U.S. Senate, conservative Congressman Ted Budd fit the bill perfectly. President Trump endorsed Budd early on, and it paid off in spectacular fashion. In fact, Trump’s stamp of approval paved the way for Congressman Budd to win a once unthinkable 59% of the vote in a crowded and competitive field of candidates that included a popular former governor. The liberal media will work hard to sweep the implications of Budd’s massive haul under the rug, but what it means is unmistakable. President Trump remains very strong in the critically important battleground state of North Carolina.

The results in Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate primary are still too close to call at this hour; however Trump-endorsed candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz has the lead. The race appears headed to a recount, but anyone who follows tight elections knows that Oz’s current vote lead will be very difficult – if not impossible – to overcome.

The top three finishers, Oz, Dave McCormick and Kathy Barnette, are all conservative political outsiders in the Trumpian tradition, all campaigned for President Trump’s endorsement and strongly support his America First agenda. Furthermore, the field of Republican candidates received more than 140,000 more votes than their Democrat counterparts. This enthusiasm gap could make all the difference in the general election in the all-important Keystone State. In the gubernatorial election, President Trump’s endorsement propelled conservative State Sen. Doug Mastriano to victory. Before Trump threw his support behind Mastriano, he was polling in the 20s. But on election night with Trump in his corner, he received a whopping 44% of the vote in a very crowded field. Those numbers are an exclamation point that can’t be ignored.

Other than the Oz-McCormick race which is still up in the air, President Trump had a very strong night winning 23 out of 25 races he endorsed in for the May 17 primaries. Even in North Carolina’s 11th congressional district primary where freshman Rep. Madison Cawthorn was defeated due to an avalanche of negative news reports, he still only lost by 1,300 votes. And in the Tar Heel State’s 13th district, Trump endorsed candidate Bo Hines won handily even though the “experts” were predicting a nail biter.

In Idaho’s Republican primary for state attorney general, anti-establishment conservative Raul Labrador defeated the state’s longest serving Attorney General Lawrence Wasden by the wide margin of 51% to 39%. Labrador is a former four-term congressman and leading member of the House Freedom Caucus. These convincing results make it clear that voters fully understand that their constitutional rights and God-given liberties are under assault by the Biden administration, and they want tough state attorneys general to band together and take a stand.

Now it’s onto next Tuesday’s primary contests in Alabama, Arkansas and Georgia. President Trump will win most of the races he endorsed a candidate in, maybe lose a race here or there, and some will likely go to a run-off. Regardless, the anti-Trump media and anti-Trump political establishment will be ready to pounce.

But here’s one thing we know for certain: every Republican candidate who prevails in the next round of primaries will do so because he or she supports Trump America First policies. As each primary comes and goes, one undeniable fact will emerge. Voters are longing for the Trump years of promises made and promises kept. They want a booming economy, low gas prices, a secure border, safe streets, and a peace through strength foreign policy. So, while tracking endorsements, wins and losses is good for ratings and clicks, it’s important not to lose sight of where the hearts and minds of the American people are.
