KINGMAKER: Trump's 55-0 Winning Streak Has GOP Falling In Line Behind Him

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.05.22

There’s no denying it —former President Trump still holds major sway over the GOP; his 55-0 winning streak can’t be ignored. According to Politico, members of the GOP are starting to fall in line.

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) says “he’s the leader of the party, that’s clear … If he decides to run, he will be the nominee.” On the other side of the party, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) agrees: “I don’t delude myself into thinking I have a big swath of the Republican Party,” Romney said in a Wednesday interview. “It’s hard to imagine anything that would derail his support. So if he wants to become the nominee in ‘24, I think he’s very likely to achieve that.”

According to Politico…

Though Tuesday was just one night in a crowded spring primary calendar, Trump’s romp in Ohio signals that — for all the talk of his waning influence after losing in 2020 and getting impeached for inciting an insurrection — the GOP is still in his thrall. He’s unlikely to topple several sitting governors he’s gone after. But when it comes to federal primaries, Trump far overshadows every other GOP figure, from the establishment to party gadflies, according to interviews with nearly a dozen GOP lawmakers.

Trump-endorsed House candidates Max Miller and Madison Gesiotto Gilbert cruised through their respective Ohio primaries on Tuesday night. In the northwest corner of the state, J.R. Majewski, a Trump fanatic known for using paint to transform his lawn into shrines to the former president, notched an upset of two better-funded rivals.

That was just one week after Trump praised Majewski and his landscaping at an Ohio rally for Vance.

“There’s never been an endorsement in American history that has the political punch that President Trump’s endorsement has,” said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).

“When Trump endorsed, Vance was in fourth place. And he rocketed to the front on the shoulders of Trump’s endorsement,” said Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). “It has been obvious for a long time that he has enormous influence in the party, that Republicans strongly support President Trump, and they care about his leadership.”
