Former President Donald Trump’s pick to replace GOP Rep. Steve Stivers of Ohio defeated a large slate of candidates by a wide margin on Tuesday.

Former coal lobbyist Mike Carey captured 37 percent of the vote in the race against 10 other candidates, none of whom landed more than 15 percent.

“One of the biggest stories in the Lamestream Media yesterday was the very important Congressional race in Ohio and whether or not Trump-backed candidate, Mike Carey, would lose against a large and outstanding field of other candidates,” Trump wrote in a statement Wednesday morning. “But lo and behold, instead of a loss, there was a landslide victory for Mike — a win far larger than even the most optimistic polls.”
