Watch: Trump’s Candidate for Governor in Maryland Squashes RINO Gov. Hogan’s Choice
Former President Donald Trump’s man wins again! Maryland Delegate Dan Cox (R-04) got a coveted endorsement from Trump and handily defeated one of Trump’s critic’s choices for his successor.
Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD) chose Kelly Schulz to be his successor in Maryland’s Republican gubernatorial primary.
Trump endorsed Cox back in November and the race became a litmus test for what is happening across America among GOP candidates.
With 68 percent reporting close to midnight last night, Cox had 56 percent of the vote and soundly defeated Schultz who just had 40 percent, according to the Associated Press.
So the conservative in Maryland are more loyal to Trump than they are their own governor.
“Wow! Trump Endorsed Dan Cox is doing really well tonight in seeking the Republican Gubernatorial Nomination in the Great State of Maryland,” Trump wrote in a Truth Social Post
Trump also wrote, “Not over yet, but RINO Larry Hogan’s Endorsement doesn’t seem to be working out so well for his heavily favored candidate. Next, I’d love to see Larry run for President!”
And finally, the former president posted, “Congratulations to Dan Cox. NBC Fake News just called the race, but in this case the reporting wasn’t Fake (for a change!).”
When Trump endorsed Cox, he also lashed out at Hogan.
“Dan Cox is an America First Patriot who is running for Governor in the Great State of Maryland. A tough lawyer, and smart businessman, Dan has done outstanding work in the Maryland General Assembly,” the former president said.
“Dan is MAGA all the way—unlike his opponent, Kelly Schultz, who was handpicked by her ‘boss,’ RINO Larry Hogan, who has been terrible for our Country and is against the America First Movement,” Trump continued.
The recent victory puts Trump’s endorsement record at 147-10 in 2022.
Biden’s numbers keep going lower and lower, while Trump’s numbers keep rising.
