In a statement posted on his website on May 10, Trump called Patrick “a great fighter for the people of Texas,” praising him for consistently standing up for rights, security and freedom. He recommended Patrick’s solid conservative principles and urged Texans to re-elect him. He said Patrick is an outstanding leader and “has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
Trump has continued his tradition of endorsing GOP candidates who share his vision for America. A survey taken in January found that 45% of Republicans would be more likely to vote for a candidate who has the Trump seal of approval. Patrick has over a year to go before he needs to defend his job with the voters, but Trump just gave him a head start.
