Hills on Trump's involvement in primary elections

September 26, 2022 USA Today

Former President Donald Trump played a key role in deciding primary races across the country. Rusty Hills, lecturer in public policy, says there’s nothing unusual about presidents getting involved in elections, but they usually do so on behalf of the party in the general election.

“In the case of Donald Trump, he’s engaged just as much if not more often within primaries and conventions and nominating contests," Hills said. "That’s getting pretty far in the weeds.”
