Donald Trump was the big winner on Tuesday night
This series of winners continued on Tuesday night as voters in Arizona and Florida went to the polls.
The most obvious example of Trump's power within the party is the Florida governor's race where he was tweeted last year by Putnam in the first round of the candidacy of Republican Ron DeSantis, who was considered a strong outsider to Agriculture Commissioner Adam.
"Congressman Ron DeSantis is a brilliant young leader, Yale and then Harvard Law, who would be a GREAT Governor of Florida" Trump tweeted just days before Christmas
. "He loves our country and is a real FIGHTER!"
DeSantis drove for victory. "Such a fantastic victory for Ron DeSantis and the people of the great state of Florida" Trump tweeted
. "Ron will be a fantastic governor, by November!"
Republican Senate leaders have long been calling for Rep. Martha McSally, a moderate poll, to lose the Party's best chance of holding the seat if Trump Former State Legislator Kelli Ward, or the Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was pardoned.
The same strategists were upset when Trump signed the law on defense clearance at a New York ceremony saying McSally said, "I got to know her very well, and she's terrible."
This quasi-confirmation might have sealed McSally's victory. She won convincingly on Tuesday night – and Trump went quickly to take credit – and shot at the man McSally is running to replace. "Martha McSally, who runs for the US Senate in Arizona Primary, was rejected by Senator Jeff Flake … and declined – a premiere!" Trump tweeted
. "Now Martha, a great US military fighter jet pilot and highly respected member of the congress, WINS GREAT. Congratulations, and see you through November!" The Point: Trump says many things that make truth vague. But one thing he's right about is his popularity with Republican voters. The victories of DeSantis and McSally prove this reality simply (again)
