Guys, it seems that there is some evidence to support our claims that having Hair Füror’s complete and total endorsement might not be the Midas touch, but could be a politician’s career killer:
The former president is studying races and plans to bestow his superlative-laden endorsements around the country in many 2022 primary or general election contests for the U.S. House, Senate, and governorships, according to a person familiar with his thinking. While those nods can still be the golden ticket in a Republican primary and solidly GOP districts, they also can energize independents and Democrats who don’t like Trump in competitive districts—risking defeat for Republican candidates in the general election and with it possible control of the House, according to studies of the 2018 and 2020 campaigns….
Earlier this month, Trump announced his support for Susan Wright, who was running in a special election to replace her late husband, Representative Ron Wright, in a safe Republican district in Texas. He claimed that “Susan surged after I gave her an endorsement last week.” Wright was the top vote-getter but failed to avoid a runoff. In fact, almost 70% of the votes cast for Republicans in the crowded field were for someone besides Wright.
And because we know that everything Lord Damp Nut touches dies, this is our own confirmation bias news.
(Bloomberg) — Former President Donald Trump expects to resume rallies with two events next month and one around the July 4 holiday, a person familiar with his plans confirmed.
Trump’s team is still determining the venues for the rallies, the person said. The planned resumption was first reported by the New York Post.
