Former President Donald Trump pointed to the political currency of his endorsement in a statement early Wednesday noting that all of the candidates he endorsed in Tuesday's Texas primary either won or had a substantial lead as vote-counting continued.
"All 33 Trump-Endorsed candidates won last night in Texas, or are substantially leading. Big night!" Trump said in a statement issued by his Save America PAC. "How will the Fake News make it look bad?"
Incumbent Gov. Greg Abbott, who easily turned back several right-wing challengers, topped the list of Trump-endorsed candidates.
At least one Trump-endorsed candidate still faces a run-off battle. Incumbent Attorney General Ken Paxton outpolled state Land Commissioner George P. Bush, the nephew of one president and grandson of another, but failed to capture a majority of the votes cast.
