Here’s How Trump-Endorsed Candidates Did On Election Night
President Donald Trump has given his endorsement to 79 gubernatorial, House and Senate Republican candidates on the ballot Tuesday and stumped for many of them in their home states.
Trump’s 43-31 as of Wednesday.
That leaves several candidates whose fate is still up in the air such as Republican Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, who declared victory over Oprah Winfrey-endorsed Democrat Stacey Abrams Wednesday although the race hasn’t been officially called.
Here are the Republican candidates who received Trump’s endorsement, according to Ballotpedia:
Trump endorsed 18 candidates for governor who were on the ballot Tuesday, five of whom are incumbents. So far he’s 8-8 with two races uncalled. Those losses include one incumbent, Republican Gov. Scott Walker, who went down to Democratic challenger Tony Evers in Wisconsin.
It’s worth noting that Trump also endorsed Wyoming gubernatorial candidate Foster Friess in August, but Friess lost in the primaries to Wyoming State Treasurer Mark Gordon. (RELATED: These Democrats’ Campaign Ads Definitely Backfired)
Kansas gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach also received attention after Trump endorsed the challenger over GOP incumbent Gov. Jeff Colyer in August. Kobach lost to Democrat Laura Kelly.
