Trump endorses Renee Ellmers
Not a good development. From Conservative Review:
[Ellmers is] a fighter alright – a fighter for the Boehner K Street political elites. There is perhaps no sitting member who embodies the source of anger among Republican voters – the anger that has engendered the rise of Trump in the first place – more than Renee Ellmers. After she was elected as a “Tea Party conservative” in 2010, she immediately became one of the most loyal foots soldiers for Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy and has done more to fight the conservative grassroots on immigration that any sitting House member.
. . .
Check out her CR profile here, and you will discover a more extensive liberal rap sheet than almost any sitting Republican congressman.
Ellmers (R-NC) was endorsed by Sarah Palin, and upon election in 2010-11, promptly turned to the left. On immigration issues, NumbersUSA gives her a better report card rating than Conservative Review, but Mr. Trump could have sought out any number of congress critters with better track records.
Ellmers faces a tough primary tomorrow; here's the report from NPR.
