Former President Donald Trump addressed supporters at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and touted his endorsement record on the night of the midterm elections.
Trump, who is widely expected to announce a 2024 run for president next week, showcased his picks in races that were generally predicted to go for the GOP.
The former president congratulated Sen.-elects Ted Budd (R-NC), J.D. Vance (R-OH), and Eric Schmidt (R-MO), among others.
“Marco [Rubio] had a fantastic evening, at 58-41. That’s really — that’s really tremendous. That’s as of this moment. Katie Britt — I want to congratulate Katie Britt. We endorsed Katie. And she did fantastically, 68-30. That means she has a future: young and just fantastic,” Trump said Tuesday evening.
He also discussed his rally in Ohio on Monday, in which he addressed a crowd despite a rain storm, quipping to his supporters about what President Joe Biden would have done in those conditions.
Trump also called it a “great honor” to have members of the media present at the watch party.
