Blake Masters, a venture capitalist backed by former President Donald Trump, has won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Arizona.
The Associated Press projected Masters as the winner Wednesday morning, setting up a key showdown in November against incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly in a race that could determine control of the Senate.
Masters also had the backing of tech billionaire Peter Thiel, but early on he trailed in a crowded field that included Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, businessman Jim Lamon and Gen. Mick McGuire, the former head of the state National Guard.
Trump’s endorsement catapulted Masters into the lead this spring and he never looked back.
Lamon is poised to finish second.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
