President Trump endorsed republican candidate Mike Carey in Ohio’s 15th Congressional District. With that endorsement, Cary went on to win against a crowded field of candidates, and will now face-off against Democrat Allison Russo in the November general election.
As noted in The Daily Mail, “Carey was a little known contender until he earned Trump’s endorsement – a sign of the former president’s influence on the Republican voters who decide the party’s nominee. Carey is a close friend of Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager.”
This primary win further solidifies the importance of President Trump’s endorsement in the 2022 primary races. “Tonight, Republicans across Ohio’s 15th Congressional District sent a clear message to the nation that President Donald J. Trump is, without a doubt, the leader of our party,” Carey said in a statement after his victory.
Carey is now favored to win OH CD-15 in the November special election, as it is a GOP-leaning district. President Trump reminded everyone last night:
“One of the biggest stories in the Lamestream Media yesterday was the very important Congressional race in Ohio and whether or not Trump-backed candidate, Mike Carey, would lose against a large and outstanding field of other candidates. The mainstream was chomping at the bit to report a loss for a Trump endorsed candidate—they couldn’t wait. In fact the Washington Post still hasn’t corrected their very old story. But lo and behold, instead of a loss, there was a landslide victory for Mike—a win far larger than even the most optimistic of polls.”
“It was a great day for Ohio, but the story of this victory has been barely reported by the Fake News. If my endorsed candidate would have lost, it would have been nothing but front page. Such a double standard, but congratulations to Mike, he will never let Ohio down.” ~ President Trump
