Trump Endorses ERIC in Missouri Primary Race But Both Candidates Are Named Eric and They’re Both Claiming It’s Them

2022 was meant to be the time that Donald Trump proved his endorsement power to the GOP. While he has endured some embarrassing losses, many of his candidates have also won their primary races. The problem is that some of his most prominent endorsees, JD Vance, Herschel Walker, and Mehmet Oz, are running terrible campaigns, and all are polling poorly.

Trump has been reticent to get involved in the Missouri primary, which sees Eric Schmitt taking on Eric Greitens. The former President changed that on Monday, though he only gave the name Eric in his statement. Now both candidates are touting Trump’s backing.

In his statement, Trump wrote, “I trust the Great People of Missouri, on this one, to make up their own minds, much as they did when they gave me landslide victories in 2016 and 2020, and I am therefore proud to announce that ERIC has my complete and total endorsement.”

Both men were quick to announce that the endorsement concerned them individually. Schmitt tweeted, “I’m grateful for President Trump’s endorsement. As the only America First candidate who has actually fought for election integrity, border security & against the Left’s indoctrination of our kids—I’ll take that fight to the Senate to SAVE AMERICA!”

Greitens also took credit writing, “I’m honored to receive President Trump’s endorsement. From the beginning, I’ve been the true MAGA Champion fighting against the RINO establishment backing Schmitt. President Trump said it best when he characterized Schmitt’s campaign as ‘great dishonesty in politics.’”
