Trump Backs Some GOP Senators as Bannon Escalates 'War' on Incumbents

In Washington, Mr. Trump has shown a willingness to protect sitting senators. He stood with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in the Rose Garden last week and declared that he and Kentucky’s longest-serving U.S. senator are “closer than ever before.” Mr. Trump last week phoned at least three incumbents and committed his support: GOP Sens. Roger Wicker of Mississippi, John Barrasso of Wyoming and Deb Fischer of Nebraska.

No challenger has yet surfaced for Mr. Barrasso or Ms. Fischer, both members of the McConnell leadership team.
