All 33 Trump Backed Candidates Win Texas Primaries
Former President Donald Trump responded to the Texas Gubernatorial races on Tuesday night.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has won the Republican gubernatorial primary, according to the AP.
Seeking his third term as Texas’ top executive, Abbott fended off a primary challenge from seven Republican candidates including Don Huffines, a former state senator, and Allen West, a former Florida congressman and former chairman of the Texas Republican Party.
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Comptroller Glenn Hegar will win their respective primaries, according to CNN on Tuesday. The Republicans were both backed by former President Donald Trump.
“Big night in Texas! All 33 candidates that were Trump endorsed have either won their primary election or are substantially leading in the case of a runoff,” said Trump.
“Governor Abbott and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick have won in a landslide. Thank you, and congratulations to all,” said Trump on Tuesday.
In the Democratic gubernatorial primary, Beto O’Rourke won the race over challengers Joy Diaz and Michael Cooper.
“THANK YOU, TEXAS! We are going to win this race with one another, for one another,” O’Rourke wrote on Twitter.
