Former President Donald Trump moved to endorse Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) after he was censured by the House and removed from his committees last week.
“Congressman Paul Gosar has been a loyal supporter of our America First agenda, and even more importantly, the USA,” Trump said Thursday in a statement. “Paul is a Congressman who is highly respected in Arizona, strong on Crime, Borders, our Military, and our Veterans. He continually fights for Lower Taxes, Less Regulations, and our great, but under siege, Second Amendment. Paul Gosar has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
The vote was mostly along party lines, and came about because Gosar posted a video to Twitter in early November that showed him and Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Lauren Boebert (R-CO) attacking a photoshopped Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
“I have received overwhelming support from Republican colleagues, including Leader McCarthy, for which I am incredibly grateful. The battle yesterday was 100% partisan and it reflects the on-going culture war,” Gosar said.
He added that he had nothing to apologize for and was proud Republicans didn’t back down.
