Houston, TX – Wesley Hunt, Houston native, Army combat veteran, and Republican candidate for Congress, released the following statement on his endorsement from Congressman Steve Scalise to run for Congress in Texas’ new 38th Congressional district.
“I am excited to announce my endorsement of Wesley Hunt for Congress in Texas’ 38th Congressional District. Wesley is a strong conservative, combat veteran, and patriot. From his service to our nation and commitment to our shared beliefs, I know he’ll be the fighter this district needs in Washington. Wesley has made clear that he will work tirelessly to protect our southern border, promote conservative values, and stand alongside other House Republicans to reject President Biden’s radical Agenda. Wesley is the right choice for Texas and our country, and I look forward to working with him in Congress,” said Congressman Scalise.
Scalise’s endorsement comes a week after Wesley raised over $1 million in his first quarter as a candidate this cycle, a poll showing him leading every hypothetical Primary opponent by nearly 20 points, and among other endorsements including Senator Ted Cruz, Secretary James Baker, and Secretary Mike Pompeo.
