Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said former President Donald Trump would help all incumbents of the GOP Senate, while Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told reporters that the former commander-in-chief did not agree to refrain from going after the incumbents of the Republican House.
“The President would be of support to all the Republican Senate incumbents. We have a large slate of incumbents,’ Graham said to Fox News on Friday.

According to Graham, Trump is “working with our incumbents” and is working to support Republicans in their efforts to unseat Democrats in Arizona, Georgia, and New Hampshire.
In his reelection campaign in 2022, Trump endorsed Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) few days ago. Graham said that Trump’s team had discussed a potential endorsement with Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.)
“For the wonderful people of Kansas, Senator Jerry Moran is doing a fine job. Jerry has my full and utter support for his re-election in 2022, good on the military, Vets, the Border, and our Second Amendment! In a statement released by his Save America PAC, Trump said.
It’s not clear with respect to Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and John Thune (R-S.D.). Trump called for primaries for the two senators as they are up for reelection in 2022. A frequent critic of the former president, Murkowski voted to convict him earlier this month during his impeachment trial and faced rebuke from the Republican Party in his home state.
And McCarthy said that during the House races, it’s unclear how Trump will react.
“I am not committed to that. I’m working closely with the president to focus on endorsements to secure House seats,’ he told reporters on Friday. “We did pretty good [last cycle]-you know, everybody said we were going to lose 20 seats.”
Ten Republicans in the House voted last year to impeach Trump, including Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, No. 3. (R-Wyo.).
A Wyoming rally against Cheney was called by the former president’s son, Donald Trump Jr.
Taylor Budowich, a conservative strategist and former advisor to Trump’s 2020 campaign, told The Epoch Times this week, “She’s going to be a fantastic contributor to MSNBC.”
Chairman Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) of the National Republican Senate Committee sent a memo urging Republicans to abandon internal fights promptly and concentrate on beating the Democrats in the mid-term elections.
“But now is not the time for division, and here’s why: Socialism has become the Democratic Party’s unabashed and ruling agenda for the first time in all of our lives,” Scott wrote in a memo. “The Democrats are easily dropping any pretense of loyalty to our Constitution’s first and second amendments, and will give up on the rest of it in due time.”
