Republicans have been nervously watching as Donald Trump endorses extremists and election deniers around the country. The mid-term elections will determine the future of Congressional power, as well as key governorships and state legislature positions. For his latest endorsement, The Donald seems to have punted.
The Missouri U.S. Senate primary election features two radically different choices on the Republican side. First is former governor Eric Greitens. Many within the party believe he is a dangerous radical who could cost them their seemingly-safe seat.
While Donald Trump has endorsed several such candidates, that is not the case in Missouri. Greitens’ major opponent is State Attorney General Eric Schmitt. When Trump made his endorsement, he simply said ‘Eric.’ According to NBC News, that is causing confusion.
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 the 2016 and 2020 Elections, and I am therefore proud to announce that ERIC has my Complete and Total Endorsement!
A third candidate, the less-known Eric McElroy, further clouds Donald Trump’s trollish pick. As Trump ramps up for his 2024 Presidential campaign, perhaps he didn’t want to overtly endorse a controversial selection like Greitens. He may also just be doing it for the publicity.
Time will tell if Donald Trump offers clarification on his endorsement. One thing is for sure, nothing has changed. As Trump faces increasing legal scrutiny for his attempts to illegally overturn the 2020 election, he continues to gleefully feed his ego with political stunts.
