Donald Trump has been having a field day celebrating his litany of successful endorsements in Tuesday night's primary races, boasting to followers on his Truth Social app from the early hours of Wednesday and throughout the morning.
Voters in Michigan, Missouri, Kansas, Washington and Arizona went to the polls for several key primary races that will define the next three months ahead of the November midterm elections. On the GOP side, it was a referendum on whether voters want a Trump-led future or a return to more establishment principles.
Trump bragged he 'ran the entire board' with his endorsements.
In Michigan, one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach the ex-president over the US Capitol riot lost to a former Trump administration official named John Gibbs.
A Trump-backed gubernatorial candidate also bested a crowded primary field to face incumbent Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in the fall.
