Donald Trump’s supporters had reason to rejoice Wednesday, as his chosen candidate in the Kentucky GOP gubernatorial primary, state AG Daniel Cameron, beat another candidate backed by most of the rest of the national Republican leadership.
Fox, “Cameron, a rising star in the party, came out on top in a crowded field of 12 Republican candidates that included former U.N. Ambassador Kelly Craft and Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles…a number of other Republican heavyweights, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, backed Craft…Craft also had the high-profile endorsements of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and House Oversight Committee Chair Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., while Quarles had the commanding support of Kentucky farmers.”
Said the Trump campaign, “President Trump is the leader of the Republican Party. The results in Kentucky’s Republican gubernatorial primary tonight reaffirm that. Republican voters stand with President Trump, not Ron DeSantis,” Make America Great Again Inc. spokesperson Alex Pfeiffer said. “It’s time to unite around Donald Trump. Voters know that President Trump has their interests in mind when he endorses a candidate, not the interests of the consultant class,” he added. The “consultant class”? Odd choice for a target. Not exactly a hot button topic.

Kentucky could prove a taste of things to come in the 2024 Republican presidential primaries. If Trump runs against several candidates then his loyal 40-50 percent of the base will give him victory almost every time, regardless of scandal, as the rest of the field has to divide up the remaining votes amongst themselves.
Only by uniting around one strong challenger to Trump, likely a Tim Scott or a Ron DeSantis, can there be any hope of any other nominee than Trump. As national polls consistently tell of solid majorities of American voters who do not want a replay of 2020, Trump challengers better start thinking strategically if they want any chance whatsoever to beat him.
In other positive Trump news the finally released Durham Report confirms what Trump has been saying all along, that he and his 2016 campaign were the victims of a coordinated plot by the Clinton campaign, the FBI, and the White House. They executed a Russian hoax story to deny him the presidency and the lie was dutifully parroted by the media and the entire Democrat Party. The whole J6 Committee op was likely a scam to distract from this eventual disclosure.
You want to talk about an actual insurrection? Here’s an internal one right before your eyes. Like him or not, Trump is owed an apology and then some by a lot of people. The gory details of the plan to steal the White House, the above-mentioned losers couldn’t even get that right in 2016, will be heard soon by Jim Jordan’s House Judiciary Committee. Stay tuned.
