Donald Trump endorsed Tim Sheehy in the Republican primary to challenge Sen. Jon Tester, dealing a blow to Rep. Matt Rosendale.

Trump’s endorsement gives Sheehy a clear path to the nomination, as he is backed by the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Sheehy “is strongly supported by our incredible Chairman of the NRSC, Steve Daines, and many other patriotic Senators and Republicans who have endorsed our Campaign to, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump wrote.

“I also respect Matt Rosendale, and was very happy to Endorse him in the past – and will Endorse him again in the future should he decide to change course and run for his Congressional Seat. But in this instance, Tim is the candidate who is currently best-positioned to DEFEAT Lazy Jon Tester, and Regain the Republican Majority in the United States Senate.”

Rosendale responded, emphasizing his alignment with Trump’s agenda and expressing confidence in winning the primary and defeating Jon Tester.

“I love President Trump. But he needs actual fighters in the U.S. Senate to enact his Agenda 47 – and that’s me and not Mitch McConnell’s hand pick, Tim Sheehy. I’m going to win this primary, defeat Jon Tester in November and together we will Make America Great Again!” Rosendale wrote on X.

The relationship between Trump and Rosendale has been strained, with past disagreements and accusations of Rosendale’s delayed endorsement of Trump’s reelection bid.

Trump offered a strong endorsement of Sheehy, highlighting his alignment with key conservative issues. The primary is scheduled for June 4.
