Washington, Aug 2 (EFE).- The candidates who have the support of former United States President Donald Trump (2017-2021) prevailed this Tuesday in the Republican Party primary elections to be governors of the states of Michigan and Kansas, according to the projections of the main media.
This is a new show of strength from the ex-president, who has been very present throughout the primary campaign, supporting some candidates and criticizing others, at a time when the possibility of him deciding to run for the presidential elections in 2024 charges more and more integers.
In Michigan, one of the so-called hinge states that gave Trump an unexpected victory in 2016 but returned to the Democratic side in 2020 to support the current president, Joe Biden, the conservative Tudor Dixon won on Tuesday.
Dixon prevailed in a Republican primary marked by chaos and scandals involving several of his candidates, but he finally received the support of Trump and in November he will face the Democratic governor, Gretchen Whitmer.
In Kansas, a traditionally conservative state but currently governed by a Democrat, Attorney General Derek Schmidt won the Republican primary, seeking to unseat Governor Laura Kelly in November. EFE
