U.S. Rep. Don Bacon, R-Neb., offered an endorsement of controversial President Donald Trump immediately after the chief executive’s re-election kickoff.
“He has earned my endorsement and vote in the upcoming Presidential election,” Bacon said in a statement Tuesday night.
Bacon said in an interview Wednesday that he thought he’d be asked about the presidential race and he wanted to make clear where he stood. He said no one asked him to make the endorsement — at least not yet.
“For me, it’s an easy choice” vs. the Democratic candidates, he said.
