The much-anticipated endorsement from former President Donald Trump for Combat veteran and Republican congressional nominee Cory Mills has finally come down.
President Trump recently met with Mills at Trump National in Virginia where the two men exchanged pleasantries and discussed the upcoming general election, where Republicans are expected to win control of the House of Representatives and possibly the U.S. Senate.
“A wonderful patriot, Cory Mills, is running for Congress in Florida’s 7th Congressional District as a Pro-America, Pro-Law Enforcement, and Pro-Trump Champion for our beloved Make America Great Again movement. Cory has long been a great fighter for our Country, and he is a decorated U.S. Army combat Veteran who has fought bravely all over the World,” said President Trump. “He has served in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, and has even traveled to Ukraine recently to provide information for USAID and State Department officials. When everyone else is running away from the tough fights, Cory Mills is willing to stay back and fight. He loves our Country, loves the Great State of Florida, and he will never let us down. Cory Mills has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
In response to The Floridian's request for comment on the endorsement, Mills stated:
“Like President Donald Trump, I have always put our country and flag first above all. As Americans, it is important that we embrace the liberties that have been bestowed upon us by our Creator and our Constitution—a Constitution we have all sworn to protect against all enemies.
I am grateful for President Trump’s endorsement of our congressional campaign. Together, we will continue to “Make America Great Again” and defend our God-given rights and liberties."
It is believed that Trump stayed out of the contentious Republican primary race between Mills and the questionable Biggest Loser, State Rep. Anthony Sabatini, because of Rep. Matt Gaetz, lobbying mercilessly for him to Trump.
Mills, who will face Karen Green in the general election next month, crushed Sabatini by 15 percentage points and defeated the rest of the field of 8 candidates by over 18 percentage points.
Mills, received the endorsement from 23 members of the U.S. Congress, including Sen. Ted Cruz and Reps. Byron Donalds, Mike Waltz, Greg Steube, Brian Mast, and Freedom Caucus founder, Rep. Jim Jordan, is regarded as one of the rising Republican stars that will help lead the new Republican America First majority in Congress
