Political Establishment Trumps MAGA

From axios.com:

The power of Donald Trump’s endorsement took a beating in Georgia’s primaries:

  • He failed to dislodge any of the Republican elected officials he targeted, including some he’s publicly treated as sworn enemies, Axios’ Emma Hurt and Andrew Solender report.

Top target Gov. Brian Kemp handily blocked a challenge from Trump-backed David Perdue.

  • Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger defeated his Trump-backed opponent Rep. Jody Hice (R-Ga.).

Why it matters: Georgia was Ground Zero for Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election. His failure to elevate election deniers casts doubt on the 2020 election’s continued salience for GOP voters.
