Trump releases statement backing challenger against GOP Rep. who voted for Impeachment

President Trump is backing a former aide, Max Miller in his primary challenge against Rep. Anthony Gonzalez in Ohio.

Gonzalez is one of the 10 GOP lawmakers who voted for impeachment.

Trump said in a statement “Max Miller is a wonderful person who did a great job at the White House and will be a fantastic Congressman. He is a Marine Veteran, a son of Ohio, and a true PATRIOT. Current Rep. Anthony Gonzalez should not be representing the people of the 16th district because he does not represent their interest or their heart. Max Miller has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

Max Miller tweeted today:

I’m running for Congress to stand up for Northeast Ohioans.

They overwhelmingly voted for the America First agenda.

But their Congressman betrayed them when he voted to impeach President Trump.

I won’t back down. And I’ll never betray them.

Join me.
