President Trump has now decided to endorse political outsider Blake Masters in the competitive Arizona Republican Primary for Senate.

As The Washington Examiner reports:


Former President Donald Trump endorsed Senate candidate Blake Masters, an “America First” populist, in the upcoming Arizona Republican primary election.

“Despite having such an amazing business career and wonderful family, Blake has decided that he wants to make a difference for the people of our Country, and is therefore running for the United States Senate from the Great State of Arizona,” Trump wrote in a news release.

Masters, a venture capitalist, narrowly led the field of GOP primary candidates in Arizona earlier this year, according to a survey for Saving Arizona PAC in March, though recent polls have shown him behind or even with GOP primary rivals, including Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, and businessman Jim Lamon.

Masters is an acolyte of venture capitalist Peter Thiel, a Trump supporter who has had political success in the 2022 cycle by supporting author J.D. Vance for the Ohio Senate Republican nomination.

If Masters triumphs in the primary he will then face Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly in the fall.

He’s in. Trump is what 85 to 3 or so, so far? I fully expect the AZ RINOs to be voted out in November

I like when Trump endorses because he has better knowledge about them than I do.
