Trump’s “Sowing Division” In GOP Senate Primaries Across The Map

Former President Trump’s enduring influence over the Republican party was on full display this weekend as Republican Senate primaries continued to intensify and escalate, GOP conventions in key battleground states were subsumed by party infighting, and new reports detailed how Trump “looms large over fractured” state parties:

  • In North Carolina: A report from Bloomberg detailed how Trump is “sowing division among GOP primary candidates” at the state GOP convention this weekend through his unexpected endorsement of Ted Budd and attacks on other Senate candidates — promoting a new round of GOP intra-party fighting.

The Associated Press also reported that NRSC Chair Rick Scott could only manage “a lukewarm response” when asked about Trump’s role in the upcoming midterms, that “he balked when asked whether Trump should serve as the face of the Republican Party,” and that “Republican candidates in key Senate contests…are struggling to offer voters a clear vision for what they would do if elected as they fight for Trump’s endorsement.”
