President Trump officially threw his support behind Wisconsin Congressional candidate Derrick Van Orden. In a statement on Thursday, Trump announced his endorsement of the retired Navy SEAL senior chief.
He called Van Orden a strong supporter of the military and law enforcement. Trump also added Van Orden will always fight for secure borders, the Second Amendment and the nation’s incredible farmers.
Van Orden is seeking to flip Wisconsin’s Third Congressional District held by Democrat Rep. Ron Kind since 1997. However, Kind announced his retirement this week confirming he will not be running for a 14th term in 2022.
