Trump endorses Middleton
In an official statement, Trump said, “Texas Representative Mayes Middleton, who chairs the Texas Freedom Caucus, is a very effective leader in the Texas House. His voting record on Conservative issues is second to none. Mayes championed the forensic audit to identify Voter Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election; he knows CRT indoctrination is wrong for our school children. He co-authored the bill to triple security along the Texas border and strongly supports this our great Military and Vets, and our under siege Second Amendment. I am proud to give my Complete and Total Endorsement to a MAGA champion, Mayes Middleton!”
Middleton expresses his gratitude.

Kathy Ponce (@kathy4Texas) congratulated Middleton and said:
“Oh my gosh. This is huuuge.
