Trump will be stumping for Rep. Mary Miller in an Illinois congressional primary against fellow House Republican Rep. Rodney Davis.
Miller is a first-term representative in Illinois’ 15th Congressional District, which has been dramatically redrawn in the once-in-a-decade redistricting process. デイビス, who for a decade has represented the neighboring 13th District, is running against Miller for the new, heavily red seat in the central part of the state, which contains large swaths of his current district.
Trump has endorsed Miller leading up to Tuesday’s primary which she says has been “巨大な” for her campaign.
Miller told Fox News, “I’m an America first supporter. I’ve been with him from the very beginning” and noted that “it’s an America first district. I’ve got a lot of grassroots support, and the Trump rally’s just building momentum.”
While he does not have the former president’s backing, Davis is also spotlighting his Trump credentials.
“I got a great record of working with the Trump administration. 覚えておいてください, I’m the only member of Congress in this race that actually served during the Trump administration,” 彼はフォックスニュースに語った.
Saturday’s event will be Trump’s first rally since the United States Supreme Court struck down Roe v. ウェイド 金曜日に.
“これは憲法に従っています, ずっと前に与えられるべきだったときに権利を返す,” トランプはフォックスニュースに語った following the ruling on Friday.
“おもう, 最終的には, this is something that will work out for everybody,” 彼が追加した.
