Midterm Primary Election Updates: News from North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Idaho, Kentucky and Oregon

Trump, who is backing famed politician Mehmet Oz in the Republican primary, slammed insurgent candidate Kathy Barnette on Monday, alleging she hasn’t been fully vetted.

“People don’t know her,” Trump said of Barnette in an interview with The Washington Post. “She was not properly checked. She ran for Congress fairly recently and dropped about 20 points. Barnette, who has aligned herself with many of Trump’s ideas despite not having his support, attended the “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington on January 6, 2021, the day the US Capitol was attacked by a pro-Trump crowd.

The former president reiterated that he was behind Oz “all the way”. He said he had a personal relationship with Oz and argued he would give Republicans the best shot at taking the seat in November. “I also think Oz will do better in the general election,” Trump said.
