President Donald Trump has had an “incredible night” with many wins, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday night, and the White House feels good about the results that are coming in.
In particular, she mentioned the upset of Sen. Joe Donnelly, after the Democratic incumbent’s projected loss to GOP challenger Mike Braun.
“He is a candidate a lot of people projected to lose,” Sanders told Fox News, “not by a little but a lot. This is someone the president went in and closed the deal for last night. He had a incredibly tough primary. Immediately following the primary, the president came in and unified the party. You see the results of that hard work paying off tonight. It’s a long night to go. “
Sanders’ interview came before Democrats were projected to win the House, and at that time pointed out that the races were still early.
“Frankly the candidates that have embraced the president and the president has gone in to campaign for last several weeks are candidates we see doing very well tonight in those places,” Sanders said. “Certainly we feel good about where things are headed.”
She also rejected the idea that a “blue wave” was happening.
“I think that’s 100 percent due to the president’s leadership and the success he has had in the first two years since taking office,” said Sanders. “He has had unprecedented success. You see Americans come out and unanimously say they’re proud of this president and what he has done in the two years.”
