Trump endorses Ted Budd in North Carolina Senate GOP primary
Jun 06 2021
"The survival of America depends on our ability to elect Republicans at every level starting with the midterms next year", Trump charged early in a rambling speech that spanned more than an hour and 20 minutes. "And we can never, ever let that happen again and we're going to go forward and we're going to continue to look and things are being found that is not even believable". Republicans have won North Carolina in 11 of the last 13 presidential elections.
When asked by CNBC about the "broader efforts" the "From the Desk of Donald J Trump" blog was a part of, adviser Jason Miller simply said: "Hoping to have more information on the broader efforts soon, but I do not have a precise awareness of timing".
After Trump finished her remarks, the former president called up to the stage Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC), who announced he would be running for that Senate seat. Pat McCrory in his speech, who he said he would not support.
Lara Trump over the months failed to dissuade other prominent North Carolina Republicans from jumping into the race to succeed GOP Sen. When he was ousted from Twitter in early January, CNBC reported that the former president had tens of millions of followers, and he had millions more on Facebook.
Since leaving the White House, Trump has regularly made baseless claims that the last presidential election was stolen.
Trump's claims about election fraud have triggered a wave of Republican-backed voter integrity bills in state legislatures across the country.
"More than 400,000 dead Americans, millions of jobs lost, and recklessly risky rhetoric is apparently not enough for Republicans to break with a loser president who cost them the White House, Senate, and House", Moussa said.
