Leora Levy, a first time candidate endorsed by former President Trump, has now officially won the Connecticut GOP Senate primary in what many political observers are calling a major upset.

As Newsmax reports:


In what was a three-candidate race, the late endorsement of former President Donald Trump has propelled Leora Levy to a victory Tuesday night in the Connecticut Senate GOP primary, Decision Desk HQ projects.

Levy held off Themis Klarides, who broke with Trump, leading to the late endorsement of Levy, the CT Mirror reported.

Levy will face incumbent Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., in the November general election, a candidate Trump says is vulnerable in the GOP’s desire to flip the Senate from Democrat control.

“Congratulations to @LeoraLevyCT on a big win tonight against an opponent backed by 3 of the worst RINOs in the country!” Trump wrote early Wednesday morning on Truth Social.

Levy’s victory likely signals a major shift in the party, as it comes after years of the Connecticut GOP backing only moderate candidates.
