Former President Donald Trump holds that golden ticket, and he just gave out TWO in the gubernatorial race in Missouri.
"Trump announced his endorsement 'ERIC' in the Missouri Republican primary for the U.S. Senate after his decision came down to two candidates: former Gov. Eric Greitens (R-MO) and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt," reports Breitbart.
"Earlier this month, Trump stated he would not be endorsing Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) in the race, setting up a dynamic where Greitens and Schmitt were in contention for his backing, as all remaining candidates were polling in single digits," reports Breitbart.
The candidates have spent weeks anticipating who would receive Trump's endorsement, and in an epic, Trump-like move, both candidates received the endorsement in a comical Truth Social post:
This is a BIG Election in the Great State of Missouri, and we must send a MAGA Champion and True Warrior to the U.S. Senate, someone who will fight for Border Security, Election Integrity, our Military and Great Veterans, together with having a powerful toughness on Crime and the Border. We need a person who will not back down to the Radical Left Lunatics who are destroying our Country. I trust the Great People of Missouri, on this one, to make up their own minds, much as they did when they gave me landslide victories in the 2016 and 2020 Elections, and I am therefore proud to announce that ERIC has my Complete and Total Endorsement.
Trump left the fate of the gubernatorial race to the state of Missouri, endorsing both Erics.
