Former President Donald Trump touted his 22 endorsed candidates in Ohio and Indiana that swept to victory in their primary races on Tuesday while predicting it was just the beginning of a “tremendous season” for Republicans he supports.

Trump did an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital, proclaiming it was “a really great night for Republicans.”

“I was 22 and 0,” he boasted. “I won every race.”

Those endorsed included JD Vance in Ohio who won his primary handily. The venture capitalist and bestselling author of “Hillbilly Elegy” landed Trump’s endorsement less than three weeks ago in the Senate race, despite having previously spoken against the former president.

“Thanks to the president for everything, for endorsing me,” Vance said in his victory speech. “A lot of fake news media out there wanted to write the story that this campaign would be the death of Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda. Ladies and gentlemen, it ain’t the death of the ‘America First’ agenda.”

Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan easily won the Democratic nomination. Vance accused Ryan Tuesday night of running as a “Trump Democrat,” according to NPR.

“I think JD showed tremendous strength,” Trump remarked. “It was a great victory for everyone, but I am most happy for the Republican Party because we have great candidates. I think all of them will be winning in the fall.

“It was a great evening for the Republican Party and we love all of our candidates from Indiana, from Ohio, I went 22 and 0,” Trump reiterated to Fox News.

“I think we’re going to have a tremendous season, I think we’re going to win a lot of races with great candidates who are going to go on to big numbers in the fall.”

Next up for Trump are the Pennsylvania and Georgia races. All eyes are on Trump’s endorsed candidate in Pennsylvania, Dr. Mehmet Oz, who is running against David McCormick.

“The Oz race is going to be interesting. I think Oz is going to do very well. Oz is going to do very well,” Trump claimed, referring to Pennsylvania’s May 17 primary. “Georgia is going to be interesting. I have a lot of candidates in Georgia.”

Former GOP Sen. David Perdue has been endorsed by Trump in Georgia’s gubernatorial race. He is running against incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp who is reportedly leading in the race, according to opinion polling. He is also out-raising Perdue in the race.

Then there is Nebraska. Next Tuesday, Trump’s endorsee Charles Herbster, who is a multimillionaire agricultural executive, will attempt to succeed term-limited Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts. He will be running against multimillionaire hog farmer Jim Pillen, who is backed by Ricketts, and state Sen. Brett Lindstrom.

West Virginia will also hold its GOP primaries next week. Trump has endorsed Rep. Alex Mooney who is running against Rep. David McKinley.

Trump has endorsed over 130 candidates in dozens of states and scores of primaries. It’s clear he will be an important factor in upcoming elections and there is no doubt the 2024 Republican presidential nomination is Trump’s for the taking at this point.
