Donald Trump is hoping to play kingmaker in a number of GOP primary races. His man JD Vance won in Ohio. Trump also chose to back Charles Herbster despite a number of groping allegations made against the Nebraska hopeful. Herbster lost his race.
One of Trump’s most high-profile endorsements has been for Dr. Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania. His supporters don’t seem to think much of the decision and booed Oz at a recent rally. Now the TV doctor is in a real 3-way race against David McCormick and Kathy Barnette. A threatened Trump went on the attack against Barnette on Thursday.
Trump wrote in a statement, “Kathy Barnette will never be able to win the General Election against the Radical Left Democrats. She has many things in her past which have not been properly explained or vetted, but if she is able to do so, she will have a wonderful future in the Republican Party—and I will be behind her all the way.”
President Donald J. Trump:
“…Dr. Oz is the only one who will be able to easily defeat the Crazed, Lunatic Democrat in Pennsylvania. A vote for anyone else in the Primary is a vote against Victory in the Fall!” pic.twitter.com/l2nR93wAP1

The former President closed, “Dr. Oz is the only one who will be able to easily defeat the Crazed, Lunatic Democrat in Pennsylvania. A vote for anyone else in the Primary is a vote against Victory in the Fall!”
