Donald Trump would love to be seen as a winner. And his endorsements are extremely important to him. If you want to have the support of the former President, it is very helpful to be a celebrity. Trump supports Herschel Walker in Georgia and Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania even though they are clearly not the best candidates.
Maggie Haberman thinks that in Pennsylvania, Trump has created a problem that he cannot handle. She told CNN:
“I don’t remember a race like this in a long time. All gathered together, the top three. It is not clear who will win. Trump tried to push Mehmet Oz to the top and he still managed to do it in the end. But there are strategists looking at this race that say they could see Oz finish third. The big question is, Oz goes into this with ideological issues against his own Republican platform, but it would absolutely be seen as a measure of the limits of Trump’s appeal. ”
When asked about the possibility that Kathy Barnette could win and the Republican response, the New York Times report replied, “I think he’s trying to get her to downplay certain aspects. and this is not uncommon when you see a contest like this. But again, her whole message is essentially reminding us that Trump has unleashed something he can’t really control anymore with the movement. I think whether he can overtake his candidate and make this a referendum on him is the big open question of the day. It’s hard to exaggerate that.”
