Trump might avoid endorsing in Republican primaries

Last year Trump endorsed former Sen. Luther Strange ahead of Alabama’s Republican primary at the urging of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Strange would lose the nomination to hard-right candidate Roy Moore before Moore lost to Democrat Doug Jones.

“It’s hard sometimes. Sometimes you really like three candidates — that’s a very tough position to be in. But we have places where I like all of the candidates,” he said.

Trump spoke positively of Kelli Ward, who at the time was staging a primary challenge to Arizona’s incumbent Sen. Jeff Flake before Flake announced he would not seek re-election.
