Rep. Debbie Lesko gets Donald Trump’s endorsement in bid for re-election

Former President Donald Trump has formally endorsed Representative Debbie Lesko (R-AZ).

On Tuesday, Trump praised Lesko as a “Conservative Warrior” and also noted her support for himself. According to AZ Central, Lesko is running for a third term in a newly drawn district that covers the Northwest Valley. Lesko is in the middle of her second full term in office.

In a written statement from his Save America political action committee, Trump said, “Congresswoman Debbie Lesko is a Conservative Warrior for the people of Arizona.”

He continued, “A strong supporter of our MAGA Agenda, Debbie is working tirelessly to Secure our Border, Uphold the Rule of Law, Defend our Second Amendment, Support our Military and Vets, and Hold the Biden Administration accountable for their absolute incompetence. Debbie Leskko has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

Lesko responded to the endorsement in a tweet, saying, “Proud to have the endorsement of President Donald J. Trump in my race for reelection in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District. I’m looking forward to continuing my work to Save America!”

Lesko’s new district is considered Republican friendly and she does not have any high-profile challengers.
