New Hampshire’s Republican U.S. Senate nominee Don Bolduc Found himself in some very surprising crosshairs as Former President Trump went off on him this past Wednesday due to his loss in the Tuesday midterm elections, in which Bolduc sported an endorsement from Trump.
A retired U.S. Army brigadier general, Bolduc found himself being directly attacked by Trump over his choice to not lean heavily into the promotion of the election conspiracy theories being pushed by Trump for the past two years despite having absolutely zero evidence to back up these claims.
Trump and his campaign put forth a total of 62 lawsuits in various courts all over the U.S. in efforts to challenge the final results of the elections from 2020 and a total of 61 of those were toss out of court for having a total lack of evidence or lack of standing. The single suit in which the campaign found some modicum of success was out in Pennsylvania where one judge claimed that voters “voters could not go back and ‘cure’ their ballots if they failed to provide proper identification three days after the election,” explained a report from USA Today.
“Don Bolduc was a very nice guy, but he lost tonight when he disavowed, after his big primary win, his long-standing stance on Election Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Primary,” explained Trump. “Had he stayed strong and true, he would have won, easily. Lesson Learned!!”
The results seem to shine a light on the truth, however, showing that Bolduc was a fairly weak candidate as he lost his race by a total of 8.8 points.
Looking in the opposite direction, however, we see Republican New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, who chose to never take part in the election conspiracy theories from Trump, as he managed to entirely dominate his re-election campaign, securing a win by a margin of 15.8 points.
This attack on Bolduc by Trump takes place in the wake of Trump being seen cheering various loses experienced by the Republican party in key Senate races on election day.
“Joe O’Dea lost BIG!” exclaimed Trump. “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!”
O’Dea ended up losing to the race incumbent U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) in a battle that ended up being very close in a recent poll from RealClearPolitics claiming that the race had shifted from “lean Demcorat” to “toss up.”
It was spotlighted by reporter Alex Roarty just how Trump had addressed the race compared to how Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) approached the race. “Going to be a topic of conversation moving forward that Trump told his supporters not to vote for O’Dea — while DeSantis recorded a robo-call for him,” stated Roarty in a social media post.
