Trump’s two-month primary test – WSJ


Midterms are still months away, but primaries and conventions are approaching in April and May. They’re spiced up this year with an unusual element: Donald Trump has backed numerous candidates in key races, aiming to field a team of loyalists for the general election that will amplify his message that the 2020 presidential race has been stolen.
