ATLANTA (AP) ó Three Democrats endorsed by Stacey Abrams won runoffs for statewide office Tuesday, while two Republicans beat other members of their party who had been endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

Bee Nguyen beat Dee Dawkins-Haigler in the Democratic race for secretary of state. Charlie Bailey beat Kwanza Hall in the partyís race for lieutenant governor, while state Rep. William Boddie Jr. beat Nicole Horn for the Democratic nod for labor commissioner. All three were endorsed by Abrams, meaning she got a racially diverse ticket for her November run against incumbent Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.

Georgia Republicans chose their nominees in two heavily GOP districts in Tuesday runoffs. In the 10th Congressional District east of Atlanta, Mike Collins beat former Democrat Vernon Jones. In suburban Atlantaís 6th District, Rich McCormick beat Jake Evans.

Both Jones and Evans lost badly after both were endorsed by Trump. That means that the majority of Trumpís choices who were opposed in Republican primaries in Georgia lost, including former Sen. David Perdue, who was blown out by Kemp in the governorís race.

So, do you suppose the broader Republican Party will clue into the fact that an endorsement by Trump guarantees NOTHING? Didn't think so!

2. Republicans who suck up to Trump think he'll give them big donations.

They havenít learned that Trumpís $250 million grift from his fans for ďlegal expensesĒ will go to no one but Trump. Even if he doesnít run in 2024, heíll announce he is so he can use the money on himself, like campaigning in primaries only in cities where he has properties and can charge himself and staff $1500 or more per night for rooms. How about a $500 steak dinner. That sounds about right for him.

4. That funny because Trump's picks LOST. Vernon Jones got his ass whipped.

Among others.
trump only had 2 winners in contested races in the State; Lt Gov & Herschel Walker. Walker would've won without trump. And the Lt Gov office doesnt hold a lot of power
