For MAGA presenting candidates in this year’s primaries, Donald Trump’s endorsement is essential. Three Ohio Republicans gunning for the US Senate, Jane Timken, JD Vance, and Josh Mandel fought hard for the former President’s nod. In the end, it was Vance who Trump chose to back.
Last night, the 45th President was in Nebraska to support Charles Herbster, a gubernatorial candidate accused of groping multiple women. During a Sunday night rally, Trump butchered his endorsement of Vance.
The former President began by bragging about the power of his backing. “And you know if I lost one race, they’d say ‘Trump was humiliated!’ That’s what they’re waiting for, they’re waiting for one race.”
Trump continued, “You know we’ve endorsed Dr. [Mehmet] Oz, we’ve endorsed J.P., right? J.D. Mandel.” Not realizing the gaffe, he continued, “And he’s doing great, they’re all doing good. I think Vance is doing well, I think Oz is doing well. Does everybody like Oz? I love Oz. Who cares? I think he’s also going to better in the general election, so you know, there are a lot of reasons to endorse people.”
