An August 2 primary is being held in 2022 in these states, which include several swing states:

Trump has endorsed 20 candidates in primary elections on August 2:[1]

  • Arizona (6 endorsements)
  • Kansas (3 endorsements)
  • Michigan (8 endorsements)
  • Missouri (2 endorsements)
  • Washington (2 endorsements)


Trump won big:

  • MO: Eric Schmitt

  • MI: John Gibbs, Tudor Dixon, and Matt Maddock
  • WA: Joe Kent
  • AZ: Blake Masters, Kari Lake, Mark Finchem, Abraham Hamadeh, Wendy Rogers, Janae Shamp, Paul Gosar, Eli Crane, and David Schweikert

In Michigan, nominees for the crucial positions of Attorney General and Secretary of State were not on the August 2 ballot. They will be determined at the Republican state convention to be held in Lansing on August 27. Trump-endorsed candidates Matthew DePerno and Kristina Karamo are considered to be shoo-ins at the convention.

As The Hill explains:

Trump-backed candidates have picked up wins in the Senate primary in Arizona, the gubernatorial primary in Michigan and in House and secretary of state primaries.[2]
