Former President Donald Trump can’t bring himself to step out of the political scene, and this time he’s doing it by endorsing Katie Arrington, one of his former national security officials, for Congress in South Carolina.
Arrington is hoping to oust establishment Republican Representative Nancy Mace.
“The former president endorsed Arrington on Wednesday, just two days after she made her candidacy known, denouncing Nancy Mace as an ‘absolutely terrible candidate,'” reports Breitbart News.
“Katie Arrington is running against an absolutely terrible candidate, Congresswoman Nancy Mace, whose remarks and attitude have been devastating for her community, and not at all representative of the Republican Party to which she has been very disloyal. Katie Arrington, on the other hand, is liked and respected and a true Republican,” Trump said.
“Arrington won the nomination during the 2018 midterm elections when she defeated Rep. Mark Sanford with the former president’s endorsement. Unfortunately, events did not unfold as she had planned when she was a passenger in a deadly car crash that relegated her to a wheelchair for the rest of the campaign,” according to Breitbart News.
“The incident pulled her off the trail for months and seemingly allowed now-former Democrat Rep. Joe Cunningham to slip past her and take the South Carolina seat — a Democrat win for the first time in decades. Mace then challenged Cunningham in 2020, defeating him and swinging the seat back to the GOP,” Breitbart News reported.
Arrington said she is “honored” to receive Trump’s endorsement.
With the President Trump’s support and the backing of the hardworking people of South Carolina's Lowcountry, I know we will fire Nancy Mace and send a Pro-Trump, America First Servant Conservative to Washington.
