Former President Donald Trump recently threw his endorsement behind three Texas Republicans seeking reelection to the House of Representatives in the November midterm elections.
Trump endorsed Rep. Lance Gooden, R-Texas; Congressman Randy Weber, R-Texas; and Rep. Troy Nehls, R-Texas.
Trump released three statements from his Save America PAC within days of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s D-N.Y. proclamation that Texas will ultimately “turn blue”; it’s just a matter of “when.”
Trump, in response to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s recent remarks that Texas will eventually “turn blue,” held a rally in January in Conroe, Texas, and declared that the largest red state in the union “will never, ever turn blue.”
In Trump’s endorsement of Nehls, he said, “Congressman Troy Nehls is doing a terrific job in Congress for the great people of Texas. A former sheriff, Troy is a strong advocate for our brave law enforcement, military, and vets. He is working hard to secure our border, champion American energy, and protect and defend the Second Amendment.”
Trump continued, “Given his support for our America First movement, it’s no surprise Nancy Pelosi and the Radical Left are doing everything they can to stop him, but we will defeat the Democrats this November. Troy is a winner and has my complete and total endorsement!”
Rep. Nehls was one of the House Republican members Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. had initially been nominated to be on the Jan. 6 Select Committee.
While Pelosi did not object to the Nehls nomination, McCarthy pulled all of his nominations after Nancy Pelosi rejected Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, because they had defended Trump as members of the House Judiciary Committee during impeachment inquiries lead by House Democrats.
Of Gooden, Trump wrote, “Congressman Lance Gooden is a phenomenal representative of the people of Texas’ 5th Congressional District. Lance is a steadfast supporter of our America First agenda. He is fighting to secure our border, uphold the rule of law, support our military and vets, protect the Second Amendment and hold the Biden administration accountable for their failures. Lance has my complete and total endorsement!”
Rep. Gooden has been a critical whistleblower in exposing the Biden administration’s resettlement of border migrants by a secret overnight flight across the U.S.
Rep. Randy Weber was one of 17 Congressional Texans who voted to debate on the certification of Joe Biden as President of the United States on Jan. 6, 2021.
Trump praised him, saying, “Congressman Randy Weber is doing a fantastic job representing the people of Texas’ 14th Congressional District. Randy is tirelessly working to secure our border, grow our economy, cut regulations, champion American energy, support our military and vets, and defend the Second Amendment. Randy is a strong advocate for our America First Agenda. He has my complete and total endorsement.”
