Blake Masters, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Arizona, told Newsmax on Friday that he was honored and humbled to receive former President Donald Trump's endorsement a day prior.
The former Thiel Foundation president also attributed "President Trump with saving this country" during his interview on "Greg Kelly Reports."
"I credit President Trump with saving this country. Literally, he saved us from Hillary Clinton," he explained. "Look how badly we're suffering after two years of [President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris]. Imagine six or seven years of Hillary Clinton, which would be our fate if not for President Trump."
Masters claimed Trump's endorsement would help his campaign build and sustain a big lead in his primary race against state Attorney General Mark Brnovich, businessman Jim Lamon, and retired Maj. Gen. Michael McGuire.
"With President Trump's help, I'm going to win this primary in August and carry on the momentum through the general election," the venture capitalist stated.
He then called out incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly for his "left-wing voting record" — arguing the senator's experience in the Navy and with NASA does not excuse radical political stances.
Kelly's "votes are literally ruining this country," Masters proclaimed. "I'm going to hold you [Kelly] accountable for them. We are an America First state. This is an America First country. It's an America First Republican Party that we are building."
"That's the opportunity President Trump gave us. I'm going to capitalize on that in Arizona. And we're going to send Mark Kelly home. He's just not good enough."
