President Donald Trump celebrated the results of the California electoral primary where Republican gubernatorial candidate John Cox advanced to the final two runoff in the general election.

Trump has repeatedly endorsed Cox, who beat out several competing Democratic challengers to ensure a dual party race in California. Cox will face off against current California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Republican lawmakers reportedly feared that if Cox failed to secure his place on the runoff ballot, it would depress party turnout overall across the state.
