Donald Trump Jr. is preparing to dive into the 2018 midterm elections. He wants to use his influence within the Republican base to “expand our majority in the Senate and protect our majority in the House,” said a source close to the president’s son. Expect Don Jr. to be raising money for Republican candidates and staging rallies.
Don Jr.’s priority states for midterm Senate races: West Virginia, Missouri, Montana and Indiana. Those are all states where President Trump has solid approval ratings. A source close to Don Jr. said he believes his brand of “MAGA conservatism” — pro-gun, anti-media, anti-establishment — could make a difference in turning out the base in these states.
