We got two losers and one winner fromthe Georgia, Alabama, and Arkansasprimaries

The Georgia primary day was one of the dates that former president Donald Trump circled on
his calendar during the campaign season in order to retaliate against Republicans who failed to
back his election liars.


The primary, along with those across Alabama, Arkansas, and Minnesota as well as a runoff
held in Texas occurred on Tuesday. There were two winners and two losers in the contests. One
crucial race — that pits the current incumbent Rep. Henry Cuellar and attorney Jessica Cisneros
in Texas’s 28th District Democratic primary has yet to be named.

Loser: Donald Trump

The overall record Trump is healthy. The majority of candidates he endorsed again won on
Tuesday. There was no doubt prior to Tuesday night’s results that Trump’s preferred presidential
candidate for his primary for Georgia GOP Governors Primary could lose – and lose extremely.
There are many reasons why the win of 50 points by an incumbent Republican governor.
Kemp, whom Trump attacked after he officially declared that the outcome of the election in 2020 provided enough red-eye to place Trump in the Vox loser column in the very first instance in this election.

Trump has reportedly enlisted ex-senator David Perdue to run in the race, reportedly calling
Perdue numerous times throughout the fall of 2021 in order to convince him to challenge Kemp.
Trump frequently defies the norms of politics, and perhaps that’s the reason the president
decided to support Perdue who was an ex-Kemp friend who was just coming off losing
statewide and attempting to take down a popular incumbent. Trump has spent a significant
amount of time and energy at public speeches and rallies but the polls didn’t show Perdue
getting traction or being any real danger to Kemp. In the final days of this campaign, Trump was
seen to appear to have abandoned the race.


Trump’s blunder in the race for Perdue proved so evident that it encouraged Republicans who
usually agree with him to openly protest. Ex-Vice President Mike Pence, for the first time in
public, attempting to get away from Trump in preparation for a presidential bid, endorsed Kemp
— even though Pence (and others nationwide Republicans) did so following the fact that Kemp
appeared to be on track to be a winner.


Trump’s loss didn’t end there. Rep. Jody Hice, the Trump-backed candidate in Alabama’s
Republican race for the post of secretary of state was expected to secure less than a third of the
votes cast in his campaign to unseat the incumbent Brad Raffensperger, whom Trump declared
an enemy of his following Raffensperger was unable to interfere in the certifying of the state’s
election results in 2020. The former president’s choice as attorney general John Gordon was
likely to lose by more than fifty points during his effort to take down the attorney general in
charge, Chris Carr, who acknowledged Biden’s victory. In Alabama, the race for the Republican
Senate nomination seemed to be heading towards an election second round between two
contestants who are not Trump preferred candidates. Katie Britt, an establishment selection and
former aide to retired Sen. Richard Shelby, as well as the far-right Rep. Mo Brooks, who saw his
Trump endorsement, snubbed due to a disagreement this spring and will now move on towards
the final run-off.


Trump’s coattails have been successful in a few spots in the Georgia Republican Senate
primary the football player Herschel Walker, who Trump was also able to convince to run, sailed
into the victory that had no major opposition. Similar results were seen in Arkansas where Sarah
Huckabee Sanders, the former Trump White House press secretary was able to clear the
Republican race for governor early. But their limitations are becoming clearer every week.


We’ve seen Trump’s endorsement make an impact in contests in which there’s a large list of
candidates with little or no recognition like the one for Ohio where he was endorsed by J.D.
Vance. In a race where one of the candidates already has a large name and is well-known and
well-known, it’s made no difference.

Loser: The Big Lie

In a further strike against Trump, We got evidence on Tuesday that his inability to believe
Trump’s “big lie” about election fraud in 2020 isn’t an issue for a large portion of GOP voters.


Similar to Kemp as well as Raffensperger similarly to Kemp and Raffensperger in Georgia,
Arkansas Sen. John Boozman was not adamant about the results of the 2020 presidential
election and, as a consequence, was challenged by primary candidates who believed Boozman
wasn’t too conservative. In contrast to Kemp and Raffensperger however, Boozman had already
received Trump’s support and that of the other conservative leaders within his own party.
Boozman won handily.


While it’s true that the Big Lie has been normalized by a lot of Republicans and even Texas
Attorney General Ken Paxton, who won his primary on Tuesday, both Arkansas and Georgia’s
elections suggest there’s a division in the Republican Party but it’s not the sole issue for a lot of
GOP voters. However, it seems to have caused many Republicans, even those who aren’t a fan
of it to ask questions about election fraud, even though there’s no proof to support the
assertions.

Winner One of the most reliable gun control supporters

Rep. Lucy McBath is incumbent Rep. Lucy McBath’s win Tuesday came only moments after the
shooting massacre of an elementary school in Texas brought the issue she’s most well-known
for gun control returned to the forefront of national headlines.


“I came to give one speech, but I am now forced to make another because, just hours ago, we
paid for the weapons of war on our streets again with the blood of little children sitting in our
schools,” she declared after winning. “It was a phone call that every parent fears.”


McBath has a connection to the parents of those parents. Her son was killed and shot in 2012
and her advocacy for gun control in the wake of his death has helped propel her career in
politics.


McBath was among lawmakers in this session who were caught in an intense
Democrat-Democrat battle caused by redistricting. Because Republicans have drawn a
battleground district within the Atlanta suburbs a lot redder when they changed their state’s map
in the spring, McBath and Rep. Carolyn Bordeaux wound up against each other in a district that
was drawn from scratch.
