Top Female House Republican Endorses Trump
The top female House Republican is now endorsing Donald Trump.
“Mr. Trump won millions of supporters by speaking his mind honestly; calling out the dysfunction in Washington, DC; and talking outside the politically correct box,” McMorris Rodgers said.
“In the months ahead, he will have to earn the presidency by demonstrating that he has the temperament for the job and plans to empower every American to pursue a future of opportunity and freedom.”
The Hill reports:
McMorris Rodgers, who has a 9-year-old son with Down syndrome, has been critical of Trump in the past over his comments about women and people with disabilities.
As Republicans begin to coalesce around Trump, McMorris Rodgers was one of the few in GOP leadership who said she was not quite ready to endorse Trump.
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who recently met with Trump to smooth over tensions, touted that the two are willing to work together to unite the party, but he still hasn’t signaled whether he’ll endorse Trump. He is the only member of House leadership who has not backed Trump.
