Trump backs Ellmers in first congressional endorsement

Source: Politico | June 4, 2016 | Elena Schneider

Donald Trump has inserted himself into one of the most contentious House primaries in the country this weekend, endorsing GOP Rep. Renee Ellmers in her member-versus-member race in North Carolina.


Ellmers faces fellow GOP Rep. George Holding and two-time Senate candidate Greg Brannon in a June 7 Republican primary for a new district. Court-ordered redistricting drew Ellmers and Holding into the same territory outside Raleigh earlier this year, guaranteeing that at least one incumbent will lose in Tuesday’s primary.

Powerful conservative groups like Americans for Prosperity and the Club for Growth have been working against Ellmers for weeks, running critical television and digital ads and sending canvassers door-to-door. Ellmers has also lost favor with anti-abortions groups that once backed her.

    You would think this endorsement of a pro-amnesty RINO would give Trumpsters pause, given Trump’s promises to build a wall and otherwise more forcefully deal with illegal immigration. But no.

    Trumps colors continue to show and they ain’t Red White & Blue.
