Former President Donald Trump has endorsed Susan Wright for a May 1 special election to replace her late husband Ron Wright for a Texas House seat, saying she supports America First policies.
“Susan Wright will be a terrific Congresswoman (TX-06) for the Great State of Texas,” Trump said in a statement. “She is the wife of late Congressman Ron Wright, who has always been supportive of our American First Policies. Susan will be strong on the Border, Crime, Pro-Life, our brave military and Vets, and will ALWAYS protect your Second Amendment. Early voting is NOW underway — and the Special Election takes place on Saturday, May 1st. Get out and VOTE! Susan has my Complete and Total Endorsement.”
Wright’s husband died in February of COVID-19 after suffering with cancer for more than two years.
Eleven Republicans and 10 Democrats are competing for the seat.
Wright thanked Trump for his endorsement: “I’m truly honored to be endorsed by President Trump, and I’m so proud to be the only candidate in this race President Trump trusts to be his ally in our fight to Make America Great Again.”
