Former President Trump officially endorsed Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) for reelection in an announcement on Thursday.
Trump confirmed his endorsement in a statement saying, “John Kennedy of the Great State of Louisiana is a spectacular Senator and person. He is a tireless advocate for the people of his State, and stand strongly for the forgotten man and women of our Country. Strong on Energy Independence, the Military, our great Vets and the Border, John has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
Senator Kennedy is one of the first few candidates that have received official endorsements from the former President as Trump prepares to lead the Republican party through the 2022 midterm elections.
