If anyone doubts Donald Trump’s continued influence in the Republican Party, they need to be paying attention.
In just this year alone, Trump has endorsed candidates in run-off elections. Candidates who went on to win.
And Trump doesn’t appear to be slowing down. He is all-in to help the GOP retake Congress in 2022.
In addition to that, he just gave a major endorsement for a top leader in Texas.
From The Hill:
Former President Trump has thrown his support behind Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) reelection bid as the governor…
“Governor Greg Abbott will continue to be a great leader for the Lone Star State, and has my Complete and Total Endorsement for re-election. He will never let you down!” Trump said in the statement, which was distributed by Save America, his leadership PAC.
Donald Trump threw his weight behind Republican Governor of Texas Greg Abbott. He is up for re-election next year, and it seems like Trump is wasting no time in getting out the good word.
Unlike many other governors across the country, Abbott fought hard to prevent the 2020 crisis from crippling Texas.
He quickly worked to reopen the state, while still protecting vulnerable citizens. The state also saw lower rates than many Democrat-run states.
And its economy was able to rebound and recover faster than those with prolonged lockdowns.
Since Biden entered office, Abbott has been on the forefront opposing the radical Democrats’ plans. The state has launched numerous lawsuits to halt Biden’s immigration agenda.
On top of that, Abbott has vowed to make Texas a “Second Amendment sanctuary.” His state legislature has been working on bills to ensure Texans’ right to bear arms isn’t trampled by Biden’s regime.
And the governor has signed several bills in recent weeks to defend pro-life values in Texas.
Donald Trump mentioned many of Abbott’s accomplishments for the state. It’s no secret that Democrats are fighting very hard to flip the red state blue.
But in recent elections, it seems that the left is losing ground in Texas, rather than gaining.
An endorsement from Trump will go far in helping Abbott secure his reelection. Trump easily won the state in 2020.
- Donald Trump issued a statement endorsing Greg Abbott for reelection.
- The Republican governor is up for reelection next year.
- Trump praised Abbott for fighting for conservative values, including the Second Amendment.
