“I’m very honored to say that my endorsement means more than any endorsement that has ever been given by anybody,” Mr. Trump declared Wednesday during a phone interview with the host of “Hannity.”
“The Fake News doesn’t like talking about it. But the numbers are really incredible,” Mr. Trump said during the interview.
Election data available on the nonpartisan Ballotpedia website shows that Republican candidates endorsed by Mr. Trump in past House and Senate races were more often than not elected to office afterward.
More recently, around 78% of the Senate and House candidates endorsed by Mr. Trump in 2020 won their general election last year, according to Ballotpedia.
Democrats have majority power in both chambers of Congress, however.
