The key statistics about Trump's endorsement track record this year.

Former President Donald J. Trump planned to use the 2022 midterm elections as a show of political strength. Georgia voters had other thoughts.

The loss by Herschel Walker, the Republican whom Mr. Trump pushed to run in the state’s US Senate race, delivering another blow to the former president in a state that has been emblematic of his struggles when it comes to endorsements of election deniers, revenge candidates and battleground contenders.

In Georgia, Mr. Trump’s slate of election deniers lost their primary bids against Republicans who repulsed the former president’s efforts to overturn Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s 2020 presidential victory. Govt. Brian Kemp and Brad Raffensperger, the secretary of state, survived those challenges and then coasted to re-election victories last month.

Here’s a recap of some key statistics from Mr. Trump’s endorsement campaign this year:

82 percent: Mr. Trump has endorsed more than 250 candidates, and his 82 percent success rate is, on the surface, impressive. But the vast majority of those endorsements were of incumbents and heavy favorites to win.

8-2, 6-2: The former president sets out to replace the 10 House Republicans who supported his impeachment. During the primary season, eight either lost challenges or retired before facing voters, while two survived. Among the eight Trump-endorsed challengers, six won general election contests and two lost to Democrats.

0-5: In the 36th most competitive House races, as determined by the Cook Political Report, Mr. Trump endorsed candidates in five contests. All five lost.

1-5: Mr. Trump spent heavily on behalf of other candidates for the first time, and the results weren’t good. In the seven races across six states where Mr. Trump’s super PAC spent money, last month he won one (Ohio Senate) and lost five (Arizona governor and Senate, Michigan governor, Nevada Senate, Pennsylvania Senate). Tuesday night he lost the sixth in Georgia.
