Trump's Support for Big Jim Justice in West Virginia Senate Primary

Former President Donald Trump endorses West Virginia Governor Jim Justice for the Republican Senate Primary, highlighting Republican alignment for the 2022 midterm elections.

Jim Justice, Governor of West Virginia, commended for his dedication to various critical issues: border security, military, veterans, clean coal, energy, the economy, inflation control, and protection of the 2nd Amendment.

Trump's endorsement message on Truth Social: 'Big Jim will be an exceptional UNITED STATES SENATOR, and I offer my complete and unwavering support. He will not disappoint you

Justice is competing against Rep. Alex Mooney, backed by the conservative Club for Growth. The primary has attracted significant attention due to its implications.

National Republicans strongly support Justice, considering him the more formidable option to challenge Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, who is seen as vulnerable in West Virginia's reelection.

Trump's endorsement carries substantial weight in a state where he won by nearly 40 points in 2020, potentially impacting the primary outcome.

A look at campaign finances: Manchin has $11.3 million in reserves, Justice raised $613,000, and Mooney collected $314,000, creating a dynamic financial landscape.
